The Wright stuff

Walking back to work this lunchtime something caught my eye. Was it a bird? No, it was an aeroplane. I was surprised that I was surprised, after all they're ten a penny in the skies back home. It came as quite a relief to see that it was a real Boeing thingy with jets and all (the Major will have ID'ed it immediately).

I felt disappointed that it wasn't a Vickers Vanguard. Or a Supermarine Sea Otter, come to ply the flying boat trade amongst the ratty banks of the river Helminth.

If it was a Real Boeing what the heck was it doing over Helminthdale?

PS Do your readers know that the "B" in RB-211 stood for Barnoldswick?
