Another long silence - sorry about that.  The junior partner hurt her ankle and, while doing an excellent impersonation of Long John Silver, the mobility difficulties meant that everything took a much longer time. The plane pictured is not a recent addition to the Loaghtan Books fleet of vehicles, but did do a fly past over Queen's Pier Ramsey to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of the Atlantic.  Coincidentally it also flew past the office windows on its way in. Poseidon is the Greek god of the sea and is an appropriate name for the new RAF maritime patrol plane.  The eagle-eyed among you might just be able to make out that, although it looks like a Boeing 737, and is indeed based on the 737 design, the plane has no windows, being full of very expensive equipment. In the Isle of Man, Poseidon would of course be Manannan.
