some are used by the French police. I don't know how many they have. This is the only way to stop a car running at 180km/hour.
Ha, well they could probably have some modified Skyline GTR's or something instead!

Dogs are great, they're so like people, but with enthusiasm and simplicity/honesty! But yeah, I really do think dogs are like people, they can read us, we can read them, I think we're very similar.

Even one of the the space programs used a dog! I'm sure with the close relationship between dogs and humans that even when humans go into space they will bring dogs too.

November 3, 1957, Sputnik 2 blasted into Earth orbit with a dog named Laika aboard. Laika, which is Russian for “Husky” or “Barker,” had the real name of Kudryavka (“Little Curly”). In the U.S. she was eventually dubbed “Muttnik.” Laika was a small, stray mongrel picked up from the street. There were no plans to return her to Earth, and she lived only a few hours in orbit.

I know, but that's sad & not the same thing, that dog was used in an experiment & as you know it died as planned. But yeah, if we colonise other planets, then I'm sure bringing your dogs would be on the agenda at some point!

Give him a break though, imagine having to ask to go for a p*ss, it's not like he can use yours & he's not cocking his leg on your bed yet I suppose! :p

Metal detecting find. It is probably some type of old farming equipment. The biggest piece was 3.5 feet long. I wonder why whoever it was buried it. Ended up with a big hole after getting all the pieces out of the ground.

Concorde Delta Golf at Brooklands Museum, Surrey, UK

Brooklands was central to the Concorde project. It was the site of the initial meeting between the British and French aircraft industries that saw the launch of the Concorde project. Once manufacturing began, almost a third of every aircraft was made at Brooklands before being transported to Filton (UK) or Toulouse (France) for final assembly.

Delta Golf had a flying life of seven years, from the 13th of February 1974 to the 24th of December 1981, including 663 flights, 374 at supersonic speeds

The Concorde - the most beautiful plane ever made - landing at Kansai International Airport in 1994. The nose would lift as soon as it took off.
The airliner could maintain a supercruise up to Mach 2.04 (2,170 km/h - 1,350 mph) at an altitude of 60,000 ft (18.3 km)
Concorde and Toulouse, the story is special. Designed in the offices of Sud Aviation, which became Aerospatiale, then Airbus, the large white bird flew for the first time from Toulouse Blagnac Airport, France on March 2,1969... Launched in 1973, it will fly for 27 years, mainly between Paris and NewYork, under the colours of Air France and British Airways.
It was assembled in Toulouse, France and in England... there is actually a Concorde inside the Toulouse airport... I was in Toulouse yesterday...
I think that some parts were made in Spain.

This is the town where I lived from age 7 til age 20... I'm 72 year old…it's a beautiful town called ABIDJAN and it's the Capital of Ivory Coast, Africa.
Why Ivory Coast, because there are many elephants in the North and their tusks are made of ivory... in the North they are also many lions, giraffes and buffaloes.
Before Ivory Coast I lived in Togo and before Togo I lived in Tchad all of them in Africa. My father was working in Africa so I went to school in Africa.. I'm white, at school, most of the students were black.
Abidjan is surrounded by a lagoon but the Atlantic Ocean is not far. . .The house of my parents was located in a suburb of Abidjan called Cocody. Our house was at 300m from a Bowling and Ice rink built and given by the Embassy of USA. Abidjan is surrounded by a lagoon but the Atlantic Ocean is not far. 30mn.

a small portion of Cocody today... was not built when I lived there...

That would be Mach 4.5 then, crazy! Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird was Mach 3.3, so I don't know how they're gonna do that!

I'm like you I don't know how they're gonna do that !! I think that the new Concorde will not fly before 2030...
