Although if the Ladies prefer it than the current one we may have to change the signs around and save a few bucks.

Mean while whilst that was going down I whisked out and applied some Epoxy Gloss paint to the Starboard Landing gear. Once she is rock had should never hopefully have to do anything to it for quite some time.
Real bugger to taxi like that so we haven't.
