    The player may replay the shot, without penalty.

    I guess the golf course want some new hazards to go with the lakes and sand traps. But what I want to know is whether the pilots got a hole in one with the door. :p

    Mantainance issues worry me most with all the cost-cutting going on worldwide and this includes the airline / aviation industry too.:confused:

    I guess that's what airline management meant by an 'open-door policy'...

    ATTN RYANAIR: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.

    If I was playing golf and that happened, I'd yell something, but it wouldn't be "fore." :D

    Anything to save on weight. Soon they'll require a bathroom visit before boarding.

    If memory serves, didn't Ryanair publicly flirt with the idea of taking lavs out of their planes?
