Hi B+, I also forgot the Woodford saga (going hand in hand with Kier) . Another question that occurs to me....has anyone ever seen Neil Woodford and Porky in the same room? Could it be....? Haha.

I've been completely out of the system for 10 days abroad with no phone, internet or social networking - wonderful time! Question is, without going back through endless responses and countless news items, what exactly have I missed in this time? Apart from Kier still not being a recovery buy - and never will be IMHO, and Halma, Evraz powering through to new highs, Boris leading the pack for the vacant PM position, the Iranians 'mining' for oil and Trump calling Khan names-again (pot, kettle etc), it seems not much has changed. Is Minnie still alive?

GKN has a new “GKN Aerospace capabilities brochure” on its website. An improvement on the previous one. Worth a look. Losos, are you still around? Would be good to hear from you.

GKN AEROSPACE OPENS WORLD’S LARGEST ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING PILOT PRODUCTION CELL AT OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY Cell 2 enables further development and testing of large scale additively manufactured aerostructure components GKN Aerospace has additive manufacturing components flying on seven different major platforms today, across the commercial, military, rotorcraft, business jets and space markets GKN Aerospace announced today the commissioning of a second additive manufacturing cell (Cell 2) at the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL). Located at the DOE’s Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at ORNL, Cell 2 is the world’s largest pilot production cell of its kind and is the next stage in GKN Aerospace’s additive manufacturing research and development targeting large scale structural aircraft components. Mike McCann, CEO of GKN Aerospace’s Aerostructures North America business said, “We are proud to introduce the next step in our additive manufacturing research as we continue to push the boundaries of this transformative technology. We believe this to be the largest laser metal deposition with wire (LMD-w) pilot production cell in the world. With this, we will target large scale aerostructure components with a focus on dramatic improvements in buy-to-fly and cost reductions over plate and forgings.” GKN Aerospace has been at the forefront of LMD-w technology for more than a decade. This began at its world-leading aero-engine systems business based in Sweden and, in 2017, GKN Aerospace expanded its LMD-w expertise into large-scale aerostructures components by signing a five-year $17.8 million USD research agreement with ORNL. “We are extremely proud to strengthen our relationship with this world-renowned laboratory to accelerate our progress towards fully industrializing these processes for large-scale aerostructures components. Through our cooperative research, we have seen first-hand how additive manufacturing will continue to revolutionize the design and manufacture of aircraft structures. This cell will allow us to create complex components without compromising performance,” said McCann. “Our research collaboration with GKN Aerospace demonstrates the rapid progress that can be made when industry and the national labs work hand in hand,” said Moe Khaleel, associate laboratory director for Energy and Environmental Sciences at ORNL. “We are pleased to see our relationship with GKN expand, and look forward to continued technological innovation in our mission to translate science into solutions for advanced manufacturing.”; The 2017 agreement included the opening of GKN Aerospace’s first prototype cell at ORNL which, over the past two years, has transitioned technology from GKN Aerospace engines to aerostructures applications and implemented advanced closed-looped controls to manage the process with complex geometry. Cell 2 helps accelerate this work in the US. The GKN Aerospace Cell 2 features include: 20KW laser 8-axis of motion Large area inert enviroment 52in x 32in max substrate size Two-sided deposition Cell 2 is a pilot production cell designed to enable full industrialization of the LMD-w process for aerostructures components. Some applications will include: product development, low-rate initial production and the transition of technology development into production solutions. GKN Aerospace already has additive manufacturing components flying on seven different major platforms today, across the commercial, military, rotorcraft, business jets and space markets.

Production of demonstrators for Wing of Tomorrow (WoT) programme Manufacturing of composite components represents step change in aerospace industry Investment in partnership with ATI, supporting technology work within the UK HVM Catapult research network and GKN Aerospace’s global technology centre in Bristol UK GKN Aerospace announced today, at the Paris Air show, that it has manufactured the first demonstrator wing components for Airbus’ ”Wing of tomorrow” research programme. The parts are samples of a section of the wing spar. GKN Aerospace’s wing technology will significantly improve the productivity of the composite manufacturing process. The use of composite components can result in up to 20% weight savings on large commercial aircraft. GKN Aerospace uses its long term experience and in-depth knowledge of wing trailing edges and advanced composite technology to accelerate the development of new composite assembly automation technologies for wing primary structures. GKN Aerospace is a long term technology leader in composite wing components. For Airbus the company manufactures the A380’s fixed trailing edge and the wing leading edges for A380, A330 and A400M. For the A350 XWB GKN Aerospace developed and now supplies the 27m long rear wing spar and the inboard and outboard flaps (including skins, spars, ribs and leading edges). John Pritchard, CEO, Aerostructures and Systems Europe and Asia of GKN Aerospace explains: “The manufacturing of the first composite demonstrators under the WoT programme is a true milestone. We are proud to be a partner of Airbus in the WoT research programme. The demand for lighter, stronger and low maintenance composite wing structures seamlessly fit our sustainability goals. The Aerospace Technology Institute is providing vital support for the UK’s position on the next generation of aircraft.”

The worst feature of the South of England is the quality of the air, although I must say it is much improved from the time I lived there in the 70s. These days, I have to visit London a few times each year and on stepping out of Euston Station I'm met with what I can only describe as a pungent and putrid atmosphere. It's as if the whole population of London, all 12 million people, and the animal population therein, had broken wind simultaneously. Not pleasant.

GKN AT PARIS AIR SHOW “GKN Aerospace expects to grow the defence side of its business in the coming years through new opportunities and the ramp-up of the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter programme. Speaking ahead of the Paris Airshow, company CEO Hans Büthker said that the current military-to-civilian balance within the company of 29% and 71% respectively, will change in the near-future in favour of the military, as the F-35 programme (for which GKN is the sole-supplier of the canopy and other parts) and other programmes pick-up. "We expect to see more defence growth for the company - it would be a good thing to do," Büthker said, noting that it is the anticipated ramp-up to full-rate production of the F-35 over the coming years in particular that will drive this growth. Besides GKN's F-35 work (it also provides titanium structures, composites, exotic metals, and anti-icing protection for the fifth-generation combat aircraft), the company also has significant technologies on other military platforms such as the Boeing F-15 Eagle, Boeing F/A-18 Hornet, Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor, Eurofighter Typhoon and Saab Gripen combat aircraft (canopies and other items), Airbus Defence and Space A400M airlifter (metals and composites), Lockheed Martin C-130J Hercules transport aircraft (engine nacelles), Sikorsky CH-53K King Stallion heavy-lift helicopter (aft fuselage), and several Airbus Helicopters rotorcraft (fuel tanks). Further to these established and publicised programmes Büthker hinted at other more classified projects, saying that GKN was working on "undisclosed platforms" in the US. In 2016 it was revealed that GKN had been contracted to work on the Northrop Grumman B-21 Raider long-range strike bomber; it is this project that Büthker was likely referring to.”

Tournesol Am reading Boris's book on Churchill at the moment. Its very good. I've read all the big biographies. Agreed Johnson not Churchill, but I can see some similarities. Jackdaw I know Barnsley in the Cotswolds. The hotel was once Rosemary Verey's house - the gardener - her husband was an architect. The pub does attract celebrities - Liz Hurley used to be a regular.

Getting Lovely part of the world I have friends in Ampney Crucis and we dine in Cirencester and a strange place called Barnsley mixing with the great and and the good. I did have a business in Barnsley near Sheffield, solid people but not many great and and good and far removed from the former. Met the chap with the HEDGE a few times , said it needs cutting.

Getting Although we live in a beautiful small village we too are close to great towns to live, namely Cheltenham, Cirencester, Tetbury and Clifton in a Bristol. Great pubs, theatres, restaurants, shops and transport links. Wouldn’t want to live anywhere else, particularly Wales.

According to the Halifax Quality of Life report, 38 of the top 50 best places to live in England are in the South. 18 of the Top 20! Number one is Hart. Closely followed by the Mole Valley, Winchester, the Chilterns, West Kent etc etc. Where I live is really terrible. It's packed full of smart shops and restaurants. Pubs are opening not closing down (3 new ones last year including a fantastic micropub). Crime rate is one of the lowest in the country. Great schools abound. Almost zero unemployment. Strong community spirit with all manner of fetes, parades, food and drink festivals etc etc. Brand new hospital and two brand new schools. Really terrible. Meanwhile, can you send me some information on big detached houses in Wrexham please - I can't stand it here anymore and I want to move to Wales. 😂😂😂
