The Truth about Goats

Russian Bombers to offer cut price flights to the UK


In a move, aggressively resisted by the RAF, the Russian Federation Air Force (VVS) has attempted to muscle in on the lucrative budget air routes normally dominated by firms like ‘Easyjet’ and ‘Discount Flying Death Tubes’. Using their superior reputation for customer welfare, the VVS will offer a range of services including military issue ‘nibbles’, stewardesses in camo paint and the chance to see a Tupolev Tu-95 strategic bomber ‘close up’.

No Thrills. All profit.

No Thrills. All profit.

According to the British Defence Ministry, UK jets have intercepted more than 100 Russian aircraft last year but have ‘successfully destroyed’ most of Ryanair’s fleet. The RAF have long held a shoot to kill policy for no-frills carriers, but admits that VVS offers a more upmarket alternative. Only the VVS has enhanced avionics systems, nuclear capability and lemon-soaked napkins.

Russian encroachment over British airspace is one of a series of publicity stunts to promote their new air service. For many it is reminiscent of the Cold War, when Russia challenged the US monopoly on cheap coach trips to Blackpool. The loss of the Soviet charabanc was seen as pivotal moment in the fall of the Berlin Wall and removal of statues of Stalin holding a toffee apple.

All VVS assigned seating will be in the ‘standing up position’ only, while in-flight audio and video entertainment will be permanent re-runs of ‘Battleship Potemkin’. A VVS spokesman said: ‘We will offer a myriad of destinations, which all end in the Ukraine. Passengers will not have to worry about long checking-in queues, as they will be strapped to the underside of a bomb dropped from 5,000ft.  Simples’.

"It takes a sick and yet highly evolved mind to fully grasp the sophistication of your humor. I tried to explain this to my wife, who thought I was having convulsions as I lay on the floor laughing." (Mike Lince)
