    Likeable chap, looks the part Why are you subliminally suggesting his car gets keyed?

    If I’m not mistaken, it’s the projection on the orthogonal plane that counts for the aspect ratio. Same as swept-back wings, on another plane

    It’s a basic tenet in project management that any deliberation has to be signed for acceptance by all interested parties. When this would entsil a change to Contract stipulations, however, this is not sufficient and a dedicated procedure (included in the Contract) must be followed, lest the change be null and void. You have no idea how many times I’ve seen that happen

    Meaning no offense, but you don’t seem to have many contract administrators, locally

    Much as I like the mental picture, the recourse to arbitration should predate BB’s hiring. Also, if that were the case LR’s legal eagles (is Alessandra Pandarese still there, BTW?) would have been as inept as EB’s prior to AC33 Good anyway, otherwise BB’s new Lego house would risk being torched by the local populace (again)

    Interesting, thanks. But does one need high temperature/carbon molds for out-of-autoclave layups?

    Dunno. The kink is bound to create turbulence/drag, especially at high flap deflections

    That’s a reasonable explanation. I find it difficult to believe, however, that an old fox such as GD - if in good faith - wouldn’t have realized the potential impact and made doubly sure LR was on board

    Less and less a fan of RG ... However, course A’s heavy chop should favor LR - remember that video in similar conditions off Cagliari? No other team has published anything similar Course E should be about neutral - certainly less shifty and dependant on local knowledge than B and C

    That’s what ETNZ says. LR says they “discovered” it in September. An agreement of that importance would require a written statement and lots of signatures. Does that exist? A Māori verbal contract, perchance? Should be a simple matter, really

    Right. The HM had to know his decision would be hugely unpopular, so there must have been solid reasons. Reversing now would be tantamount to falling on his sword.
