Ryanair chief Michael O'Leary taunts England fans by wearing the German strip following England's 4-1 defeat to the Germans in the World Cup. It's causing quite a stir on the Airline Business Blog. One user approves. "[England] are sore losers anyway."
On a more arty note, don't miss your chance to see a Sea Harrier and Sepecat Jaguar where you've never seen them before. Artist Fiona Banner unveiled her latest exhibition yesterday at the Tate Britain, of two decommissioned fighter aircraft models.
The Jaguar aircraft lies belly up on the floor. It's posture, she says: "is suggestive of a submissive animal. Stripped and polished, its surface functions as a shifting mirror, exposing the audience to its own reactions. Harrier and Jaguar remain ambiguous objects implying both captured beast and fallen trophy".

He liked the wooden dividers that split up the space that was previously used by Northwest and applauded the choice of healthy snacks, free booze and tiramisu available.
