We get a lot of couriered deliveries here at work since we are in the business of designing and delivering high performance technical systems.
But it isn't every day that we get a large FedEx parcel from the American base of a US super-carrier containing an interesting item addressed to rendezvous with said carrier when it arrives in the Gulf soon. Bahrain, Sweden, what's the difference really? Since they FedExed it, it obviously isn't of too sensitive a nature but it is still a surprise to receive and worth a pretty penny.
But not as much of a surprise as the carrier technicians will get when they receive a broken battery being returned for mundane servicing.
Must go now and await the black helicopters.
