Knocker's just arrived back from Toulouse.

If you're driving along The Westway, give him a wave.


Love it going Stealth for the surprise they will never see you coming in that :rotfl:


The reason it stands out like a sore thumb, is because the Frogs didn't get the colour quite right.

They had a load of fabric left-over from a job they did for Air France - Knocker thought he'd save a few quid and that's what he ended up with.

But, then again, do we need to be in Stealth Mode in West London - I mean, come on, it's only Brentford, after all.

This morning Knocker's been for the final fitting of his Airship Driver's Uniform.

Looks rather dashing, don't you think?

Looks good but i would lose the stone island badge on the arm they might not let him in the pub thinking his trouble you know what they are like


I think he's rather proud of the Island badge.

He's also got one of those anoraks with sunglasses sewn into the hood - he looks a right cunt!

Just seeking confirmation that there is a designated Codgers' Compartment within your jolly old balloon, Paris...


No, Whisky - the average age of the complement is 73, so we will all sit together.

Wee-bags will be issued by Mama at the bottom of the rope-ladder, before passengers climb aboard.

A Duty Free Bar will be available over Barnes. Beers and Selected Wines.

Dinner on the return journey will consist of:

STARTER
Seared fresh tuna tataki on dressed wakame salad served with jalapeño, ginger and coriander.

MAIN COURSE
Seared fillet of Herefordshire beef with truffle taglierini, rosemary jus, grilled asparagus and baby carrot
OR
Buttermilk­ marinated breast of corn­fed chicken with Taleggio­wrapped Parma ham, honey­glazed fig wedges, Mediterranean lentil salad and basil vinaigrette

DESSERTS
Nougat cream with mango gel and praline pearls
OR
Warm blackberry and vanilla clafoutis with sauce anglaise with Vanilla ice cream

CHEESE PLATE
SHROPSHIRE BLUE
A soft cheese with a sharp, strong flavour and a slightly tangy aroma of Kev's socks.
BARBER’S 1833 VINTAGE CHEDDAR
A creamy cheese with a distinct flavour and smooth finish. Made just after half past six.
NORMANDY BRIE
Not available, because it's French.

Fresh fruit

A selection of biscuits

Not bad for the price, I'm sure you'll agree


:tup:



Well, the menu appears just about acceptable. But I won't set a foot on board unless I get confirmation that the Chateau Latour 1961 to be served with the beef will be decanted BEFORE the trip begins.

Oh, and that the Port will not be a younger vintage the 1970.

I think the Wine may cause a little bit of a problem.

Knocker's got a case of "Iron Horse Barossa Valley Shiraz" £ 6.99 from Aldi.

It has some decent Customer Reviews:

cjj2000

Luscious Full Body
Superb smooth red with oodles of body Very good value

jimwuddys
Cambridge, United Kingdom

has a smooth & balanced flavour 9/10

Gets you absolutely fucking hammered. Pissed as a cunt.



Port is by Lidl,

Baturrica Tarragona Gran Reserva

Whisky, you're in luck.

Just received an email from Fullers; yes, we can call in for a couple on our way to Brentford.

They suggest we hover over Homefield Recreation Ground, then descend via the rope ladder.

Or, if we overshoot, Chiswick Eyot - then wade back to shore.

They are asking £20 a pop to look around, but I though you could pull in a favour from Mr Fuller and get us in for zilch?

I'll leave it with you.

Latest news for those joining us on the flight to Brentford.

I realise apprehension is in the forefront of your minds - fear not.

Knocker was awarded his FFA Safety Certificate the other day.

What could possibly go wrong?

Preliminary Timetable.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

10.30 - Depart Devon Street Gasometer.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Unfortunately, we are unable to find a local volunteer to cut the rope. Mamalion says she’s willing to slip us from the moorings, then ascend the rope ladder into the Cockpit.
Knocker has carried out a risk assessment and admits there is a 50-50 chance of her loosing her footing. Not bad odds in my book.

11.30 - Bomb Craven Cottage Pitch.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Knocker has bought a job-lot of emulsion from his mate who works for Lambeth Council.
I reckon two goalmouths and a centre circle will take 3-4 minutes.
Let’s see Richard Osman laugh that one off, the lanky streak of piss.

11.50 - Fuller’s Brewery, Chiswick.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Climb down rope-ladder onto Homefield Recreation Ground. Three or four pints of Pride, back onboard by 12.30.

13.00 - St. Paul's Recreation Ground (updated location)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Zeppelin reaches final destination. Tethered to the Kiddies Ropewalk whilst at the match.

13.15 - The Princess Royal, More Fuller’s
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Cheers.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Return flight details to follow - BUT I can reveal that the inflight entertainment will be delivered by the one and only ............. Joe ‘Shaddap You Face’ Dolce!

Getting that ticket was the smartest day's work I've done in a long time.

Can't wait.

One thing, Paris. Do you think it is such a great idea for the pilot of this thing to be let loose on Fuller's Brewery? Well, two things: after we've been to the brewery, wouldn't it not be a good idea to take a small divert to Stamford Bridge airspace. After all, the toilets on board probably won't be able to cope with amount of ale consumed and it'd be a shame to waste it...

Also, can we arrange beforehand that Fuller's have Chiswick Bitter on tap as this, alas, is now only a seasonal brew...

Whisky

Yes, tickets are are changing hands on TicketMaster for over five hundred quid - smart move on your behalf!

As much as I'd love to "Piss on Chelsea", I'm afraid Heathrow NATS are sticklers for Flight Plans.

Knocker has permission for the following:

KnockerAir 206, Heathrow Ground, clear Bermondsey, WOBUN 2F, squawk 4361.

KnockerAir 206, climb to altitude 600ft, pass 240ft, Old Kent Road 2F departure.

KnockerAir 206, holding point A4 Kew Gardens - 27R via J, B, L and A, QNH 1015 millibars.

KnockerAir 206 - turn left heading 310 degrees, descend to altitude zero ft.

Stamford Bridge is Ground Zero for all Speedbird Seven–Five's coming in from the Middle East - I think it best to give 777's a wide birth.

As far as the Brew goes, Fuller's say there are still waiting for a shipment of Styrian Golding to be flown in from Slovenia!

Joe Dolce has recorded a special version of NOLU - Limited Edition, to commemorate the flight to Brentford.

Joe will be signing copies on the Return Flight, just before Dinner is served - followed by his Cabaret act during Coffee and Cigars.

This could be a trip of a life time, is smoking allowed inside as Obes does like to suck on his pipe when it's his watch.

Smoking on Watch - good God I hope things are not so slack. The only time smoking was allowed was during the Graveyard Watch - Used to get great fun from blowing mouthfuls of 'Condor' down the voice pipe to the Engine Room- oh how we enjoyed ourselves.

Obes

Thanks for the deposit- I never had you down as a BitCoin sort of a bloke.

I'm just completing the Risk Assessment for the Greater London Council.

How are you on rope-ladders nowadays?

I realise you were similar to a mountain goat when serving on the HMS Temeraire, but lots of water has gone down Deptford Creek since Victoria was on the throne.

Have you any of the following:

Scurvy?

Dysentery?

Typhus?

Malaria?

Yellow Fever?

Did you ever suffer Under The Lash for Sodomy?
