First it was being left off the map entirely, and now the Welsh people are left to fend for themselves against gigantic crashing airplanes. Or rather, against airplanes appearing to crash. It could be worse, Wales, you could have been attacked by the Isle of Man. Fortunately, it was just Top Gear's self-caricature Jeremy Clarkson who peeled out of the RAF transporter's cargo hold, and not a clone army. It seems that Clarkson somehow gained permission to hop aboard the Hercules plane and engineer a beach landing, just so he could drive a Jaguar out the back and take part in the latest import craze, sand-drifting. Villagers in nearby Pembrey called police after seeing the mammoth aircraft drop beneath the tree line and not reappear, thinking it had gone down for the proverbial count.
