Re: Grounded SA Express scrambling to pay June salaries

Re: Emirates: first A380 full landing gear change (video)

Extensive fatigue testing of the Airbus A380 widebody airliner has demonstrated what the European airframer says is "remarkably slow" crack propagation, such that there is "no need to ins...

Re: AB retires from all international cricket

He didn't even discuss this with coach Otis or his bosses. Seems money in the various T20 Leagues talk the most. I am personally upset as he seems to put himself first before his country.

I have bought 2 x 210L tanks. Will hopefully modify them this weekend and send a photo. Backwash into the top tank through some stone and then feeding into the next with more stone and pool filter sand, back into the pool. My brother has a weekend hobby of removing iron and other muck from boreholes...

Re: RIP iFlyAfrica.info

It seems that Cassie is fighting a bit of a battle, his advertisers hasn't paid the bills, hence offline. There were quite a few comments made on FB to Cassie asking on costs etc, but no answer.
