I've never been anywhere that quiet - can only compare it to my first few times in a dark-room.

While trying to move film from canisters to tanks for processing my eyes got sore. Took a while to realise I was scrunching them shut - trying to keep the dark out?

One advantage the Martin has is that the blades are enclosed. I'd have better luck getting permission to land a Martin in the carpark than a Mosquito.

30 minutes at max speed of around 60 mph : would probably be enough for me to do a return trip on one tank - if only the damn airport wasn't in the way!
