Bones -

I wouldn't dream of abandoning JHB!  Any flying hours that I undertake
under the Pilot Club system will be exclusively as a JHB pilot. I can
live without 'club miles'. I won't be making ANY flights as a PUB pilot
(the only PUB I'm interested in the one at the top of my road, although
once they stop serving 'Oakham Ales JHB' beer I may well reconsider...).

Diamonds are forever!
