    Cute, but you might learn to spell Philippine correctly before making fun of a writer who apparently knows less about porn than you do.

    I remember when Flight International was the gold standard of literacy among aviation publications, but that was a long time ago. Sad.

    Doh. You got me. Dumb mistake. But flame away. I deserve it. (Fixing now.)

    Don’t let the flamers get you down, Steven. I welcome any story you wish to write about MILFs.

    Mr. Wilkinson,
    I used to like your articles in Flying.

    Did Mr. Collins edit like you’re hitting Mr. Trimble?

    Including the very ungentlemanly – “I remember when Flight International was the gold standard of literacy among aviation publications, but that was a long time ago. Sad.”

    “Cute, but you might learn to spell Philippine correctly before making fun of a writer who apparently knows less about porn than you do.”

    The error was in mixing up the aircraft model/number – one most journalists are prone to make.

    “You got me. Dumb mistake. But flame away. I deserve it. (Fixing now.)”

    There’s nothing to fix – the name was used as a modifier.

    It’s really very unfortunate that Filipinos are killing each other. But one is intrigued that the incident merited Flightglobal DEW Line’s dubious award over the many other carnages all over the world. Perhaps it’s down to the old SIAI Marchettis, the PAF’s only remaining flyable trainer aircraft – adapted to the light attack role…..
