I noticed this the other night, wondered what was going on! I wonder if they sold the last Arctic 28 they had there, somebody might have got a bargain!

I also beleive they are closing the rosyth storage units ......always was a good place for a wander ...it always amazed me some of the stuff they had in actually sold ......very specialised .......always felt though that they were quite pricey but they did always negotiate ....wonder who has the contract now

Can't believe the state of some of those Pac's and they want 12k??

I wanted to fly over to UK to have a look at their Arctic and couldn't find anyone there who could be bothered to turn up on a saturday morning to show me it!

Although they had lost the sale anyway when I realized that for nearly 4000 you don't even get a set of tubes
