Seemingly great attainment?
The real scenario is likely to be someone like Dr Milne takes the stand and swears that microscopic traces of pollen on the suspect's shirt matches that produced by one or two flowers near the murder scene - the judge and jury nod their head and the defence lawyer, who failed high school science, looks worried and mounts an ineffective cross examination.

Government attacks General Aviation

23-08-2005 18:56

This is not to cut corners on maintenance but because the FAA Instrument Rating qualification is easier to obtain and more relevant to the needs of General Aviation pilots. The government proposes to require that aircraft based in the UK are registered only with the Civil Aviation Authority.
