MO's goosing tale/tail brought a couple of memories flooding back (but not for long).
The first scheduled horseless flying carriage to land at Sumbra belonged to Aberdeen Airways, which later became Allied Airways (Gander Dower) Ltd. It was piloted by Captain Eric Starling. Probably flew over da roost. Wonder when he got his wings?
And, of course, who could forget Billy Fisher's immortal lines (reading from newspaper), "Three passengers on a Belfast 'plane were Mr Goose, Mr Gander and the Reverend Mr Gosling. They did not know each other."
Talk about co-incihapenstance.
