    Perhaps a small anemometer outside the pilot's window with a mechanical counter and a push-button reset?

    Well, the most important topics in human debate are "controversial"!

    But you'll notice I declined to be drawn out in the manner described? ;)

    I have read that in about 20 years one third of homes there will be vacant. Already there are small towns and villages that are effectively dying. Some are taking steps to try and attract young...

    Well done MK, doing that job in the space you have there is worth a salute, quite apart from anything else.

    No it won't; nor was WWII was fought with chemical weapons. They were there, but nobody used them because the consequences were too much for anyone to stand.

    Now commonly used with larger ball screws isn't it: the screw remains stationary and the nut is driven by a servo motor?
