So off they trot to Amsterdam for a porn weekend - and who should be the dominatrix in the first bar they stumble into but Shell Dockley.

However, an investigation soon revealed frightening implications for every airline, pilot and passenger.
The plane that crashed was an Airbus A300-600 and when the wreckage was salvaged, it became clear that the plane's tailfin had simply snapped off in mid-air. There had never been such a catastrophic failure of a critical structure of an aeroplane in the entire history of aviation.
