Re: UK C130 hours /Chinook average

Just for comparison although of course it varies a lot a Boeing 787 could expect 5,110 hours utilisation per year and a A320 2,920 (Air NZ fleet stats). The highest hours C130 above entered RAF service in Nov 1998.

Re: George Floyd alleged murder trial

While not getting my own way may be the reason for some to get violent there are also sections of the community who may get violent not because they are 'not getting their own way' but because they are not getting justice and being treated fairly and equally.
