He might have benefitted from some Chinese technology - the mariner's compass!

Even a hand held GPS might have helped.

Didn't need a compass, or GPS, he had a Road Map!(Applause)

All he had was a road map? tut, everyone knows you always bare left at an island, and never park on a double yellow Sea anemone.

When I used to fly in the 70/80's I was at Manchester airport one day and an Islander aircraft landed with an army parachute display team on board. The pilot had a road map and asked me to point out where Burnely or some such Lancs was. obviously good enough for them !!
