How Much?!?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

This is just a random post about about barometers - more accurately, how much a Precision Aneroid Barometer (Mk2) costs.

We need them for flying operations - so pilots can check their altimeters and correct them for the surface pressure.

Anywhoo...I've just been told how much one costs (got one to send back to the Met Office - it's faulty).

Here's a pic...have a guess how much they cost...

Box yes - quite a nice wooden one actually!

Ship no...

For that price, I would have expected them to talk to me...

"Good morning! The air pressure this morning is 1012.4mb - corrected to QNH!"

"Why thank you PAB!"

"You're welcome! Would you like me to make a coffee? Black and 2 isn't it?"
