Quotes

Weapons Operations Director, Graeme Morrison, who unveiled the ceremonial plaque, said "I am delighted to commemorate 75 years of MOD Aberporth Range and to mark the occasion with this plaque and celebratory day for employees. It is through the hard work and dedication of all employees through the years that MOD Aberporth has a reputation for excellence at the forefront of test and evaluation of complex weapons."
The introduction of the new Routemaster ( "Missing the Bus', Vol 4 #16) could be an opportunity for re-planning central London bus routes. Journey times are currently excessive, largely because too many nearly empty buses clog the routes. In Oxford Street, where only buses and taxis are allowed, the congestion is at its worst. More than a dozen bus routes compete for the same road space. It can take upup to half an hour to go the full length of this street at an average speed of around 2mph."
