  1. This case sounds a bit similar to the programme on the link. Two American women around 19 years of age, used as drugs mules, caught at Lima Airport. Banged Up Abroad - Peru
  2. A statement published on the National Police of Peru's website on Wednesday said the two women were alleged to have been acting as "drug mules". http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-glasgow-west-23654673 Edit: According to the Telegraph story below, the two young woman's disappearance prompted a massive online appeal: http://www.telegraph...ng-cocaine.html
  3. What aircraft would do QRA? If no Typhoons or Tornados? Buy in F16's?
  4. Is there any info on what the Scottish Military would comprise of in an independent Scotland? Army / Air Force / Navy, numbers, bases, aircraft, ships etc?
  5. What would the deal be with Search and Rescue in an independent Scotland? With the RAF and Royal Navy search and rescue units being replaced by private operator, Bristows, in April 2015, would we stay with Bristows? http://bristowsar.com/index.php/scotland-at-the-centre-of-new-search-and-rescue-contract/ Bristows already operate the UK Gap SAR contract in Northern Scotland from this summer operating four Sikorsky S92's out of Sumburgh and Stornoway.

  12. The last mountain stage today, unusually the day before the last stage as well. I can't remember a time when there's been less than a minute between positions 2,3,4,5 going into the last Satuday. All to play for today. Is Froome out of sight? Can't see him blowing a five minute lead unless he has a really bad day. http://www.letour.com/le-tour/2013/us/days-stage.html

  15. The last climb on today's stage (just before the finish) is the little used 'Col De Manse' It was last used in the Tour in 2003 and before that the amazing 1989 Tour where it was part of an individual time trial. In the 2003 Tour, not long after passing the Col De Manse, Lance Armstrong went off road when a rider skidded on melting tarmac: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtZhG2kWVLY&hd=1
