Simonstown main roadScenic Simonstown

There are some fantastic photos of Simonstown put up by Ralph at bundublog. This site is well worth a visit - there's photos of the naval harbour (day and night), Just Nuisance the dog, penguins, beachfront, stunning buildings and Boulders beach.

(unfortuanately the link to Bundublog had to be deleted, as it stopped working)

British Airways Boeing

This photo is of a British Airways Boeing 747 parked at the international terminal of Cape Town International Airport, no doubt having arrived on a flight from London to Cape Town. So, this isn't one of the British Airways planes operated by Comair, but rather by British Airways United Kingdom. The photograph was taken in January 2008.

"Nonsensical and the height of stupidity"...Ryanair on terrorism security measures

A Life in Full Flight"These restrictions have absolutely no impact on security, they are nonsensical and the height of stupidity, but the more you call these restrictions stupid and nonsensical the more the [UK] Department of Transport digs in its heels and says, 'Oh, we have to protect the nation, this is needed for security.' If it was they would apply these restrictions on more likely terrorist targets like the London Underground or Eurotunnel...If you look at where the terrorists have been striking in recent years it's the London Underground and the trains in Madrid. Yet you don't see the government confiscating lipsticks and gel-filled bras on the London Underground. Most of them couldn't identify a gel-filled bra if it jumped up and bit them anyways. It's simply a way of politicians making it look like they are doing something." Michael O'Leary (the man who makes Ryanair flights happen) expressing his views on terrorist measures, as quoted in his biography: "A Life in Full Flight: The story of the man who made Ryanair take off".
