Tur­bo­prop take­away

Pilot - - PILOT NOTES -

In Jan­uary, Faz Ahmed, owner of the Akash restau­rant in South­sea, Hamp­shire, which of­fers ‘free de­liv­ery for or­ders over £12 within a lo­cal ra­dius’, re­ceived a re­quest for fifty meals… to be de­liv­ered to Bordeaux, France for fifty cur­rylov­ing Bri­tish ex­pa­tri­ates. Whilst the French city was a lit­tle be­yond the restau­rant’s def­i­ni­tion of ‘lo­cal’ (about 500 miles be­yond) Faz was happy to oblige, and Bri­tish pi­lot James Emery, who lives in the Bordeaux area, duly ar­rived at So­lent Air­port in a TBM 700 to pick up the 89 meals, 70 side dishes, 75 por­tions of rice and 100 pop­padoms. Pi­lot be­lieves there is no truth in the ru­mour that Da­her-so­cata is about to of­fer a new ‘Vin­daloo’ vari­ant of its TBMS though.
