They do like the business. I passed a Marines air base today and every minute or so something would take off with a huge noise; I'd hate to live anywhere near there. Tonight, I'm close to the Boeing Dreamliner plant. If you and the new Mrs Croston ever find yourself in the area, it's worth a visit.
Frank L Croston.: Oh they do, Alan...smile We'll think about it if we ever do, thanks, Alan.

Impressive view. I imagine the sound was impressive too.
Frank L Croston.: It was, Astrid....Sorry...Speak up !
WHAT???? Oh, yes, very impressive, indeed, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Ginnie, they were indeed.
A fantastic line-up Frank!
Frank L Croston.: They were Richard...!

I wouldn't wish to argue with one of these Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Quite right, Chris, formidable machines.
Oh what fire power they are packing, much better to be friend than foe
Frank L Croston.: Oh yes, Martin, indeed.
Would they visit Droitwich fully armed.
Frank L Croston.: They wouldn't need to be fully armed I don't think, Michael...smile

Quite extraordinary and aggressive-looking machines, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: No point in them looking like 'Thomas the tank engine' I suppose, Ray.

Sometimes it is better to say nothing. My country will buy 'copters like these and then have no money for fuel. So, through your lens I am looking at 'normal' goings on.
Frank L Croston.: I know what you are saying, Louis.
I'd love to be in one.
Frank L Croston.: It would be quite a thrill, Mary.
Rather strange shape aren't they, with nasty looking guns at the front end.
Frank L Croston.: Like giant insects, Brian....Guns, rockets, you name it....

Impressive if a bit scary!
Frank L Croston.: That's right, Anne.
you would imagine one is enough and there are three in all, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: I'm sure they have even more, Ayush...smile
Efficient looking killing machines Frank
Frank L Croston.: I would imagine they are, Bill.

Frank L Croston.: Oh, yes, they were, shame there is no sound....smile Thanks Robbyne.
