In aviation terms, it could indicate that the pilot was turning Base for a landing on 04 at Stansted, but where's the humour in that?
(He had completed 18 hours of training without crashing and dying and was lovin' it. . .)
I pasted the text of what I had posted here and he told me that I was a C### and had got it all wrong. It was his younger Brother who was having the lessons but he didn't say where, and although I know where Bish Stort is, I award you A+ for research in noticing that it is close to Stansted Airport. RYANAIR call it london ( Stansted ). . .although it would cost you a bloody fortune in a taxi to get to the central smoke. . But Michael O'Leary of Ryanair is a well known A$$hole. . . .He flies to some joint 67 Kilometres from Paris by road. . ., but still calls it 'PARIS' . . .
I asked him what the original text actually said then,. . but he line went dead, so we'll never know if He's suspended on base for some runway or other . . .Stansted is Immigrant Import Central BTW,. . Duno why, but there it is. . .
Nobody ever asks the meaning of the jokes that I invent myself. . .. . . ( sobs )
