Ignoring the politics of the story, even the least aviation-aware people in society can recognise that the UK Prime Minister will not be travelling to Brussels in a Spitfire!

Awaits comments of 'Theresa May taking the war to the Europeans' from Brexiteers and 'Typical Brexiteers, always harking back to former glories' from Remainers...

Perhaps we should have a caption competition?

Maybe a 'supply the caption and provide the image' contest? I think the BBC has won the internets for the day.

Thanks for the laugh. 🙂

Thanks for that! I'm having a bit of a lousy day and I've really needed that... 😉

This one's had me in tears, literally: 🤣

Quote

BBC2 at 9:00pm “Tribes, Predators and Me” a programme where Gordon Buchanan learns to hunt crocodiles with his bare hands. Last in the series.

Cheers,

If they'd been Lancasters or Halifaxes perhaps we'd have a chance of a deal.

Typical garbage headline from MSN. Ms May is NOT shown traveling anywhere. It's a voice-over and irrelevant film footage that implies she is traveling via piston engine travel by association. One of the reasons I despise social media and its acceptance by supposedly respectable media outlets as a source of news.

Not saying this isn't humorous as it is, and pretty innocent fun as well. 

Just... 

The news coverage 

Did not show T May.. 

Travelling by world War 2 plane 

To Brussels. 

Facts matter!

It's just a clickbait headline, the article does actually clearly state "comically suggesting" and explains the clip was run in error and what should've been shown. There's a lot worse instances of truly fake news.

You should never ignore the politics of the story.  Discussing politics on AVSIM is strictly prohibited.  I got bashed for saying something political so you are getting bashed for posting a "hidden" political topic.  Topic closed.
