Operational captaincy carries the overarching responsibility for the safety of the aircraft, its crew and any casualties"..William, whose rank remains flight lieutenant despite his new qualification, finished his tests on 29 May.. In mock rescue scenarios he took part in an airborne search for a yacht, a search for 2 missing kayakers, a search for people in water, and extinguishing a simulated fire on a large survey vessel...

There are more than 200 living species of cockles, with many more fossil forms..The common cockle, Cerastoderma edule, is widely distributed around the coastlines of Northern Europe, with a range extending west to Ireland, the Barents Sea in the north, Norway in the east, and as far south as Senegal..The dog cockle, Glycymeris glycymeris, has a similar range and habitat to the common cockle, but is not at all closely related, being in the family Glycymerididae.. The dog cockle is edible, but due to its tuffness when cooked it is generally not eaten, although a process is being developed to solve this problem..The blood cockle, Anadara granosa (not related to the true cockles, instead in the family Arcidae) is extensively cultured from southern Korea to Malaysia.. A few bore into wood, clay or stone and live inside these substances..Some bivalves, such as the scallops, can swim..Bivalves have long been a part of the diet of coastal human populations..Bivalves appear in the fossil record first in the early Cambrian more than 500 million years ago..Molluscs are the largest marine phylum, comprising about 23% of all the named marine organisms..However, collecting cockles is hard work and, as seen from the Morecambe Bay disaster, in which 23 illegal immigrants died, can be dangerous if local tidal conditions are not carefully watched..The name "bivalve" is derived from the Latin bis, meaning "two", and valvae, meaning "leaves of a door"..A meal of cockles fried with bacon, served with laver bread, is known as a traditional Welsh breakfast..It was the first Warwick Film to be filmed in CinemaScope... and phosphate for ammunition..The seeds of war..They're loading a full cargo of daat..And when that ship takes it home the world will dye a little more.. I was once one of those pitiful wretches you see down there.. Look at it again, professor, I don't want you to forget what you've seen here today...
