Hope not to Hudson River where the airplane "landed" instead of Charlotte... :wink:



Saw it the whole night at German TV, this pilot is a real hero by saving 155 lives :!:

Members,

I was wondering can you provide 1) the dimensions of the kidney shaped container the K - Portion came in 2) the total weight of the package and 3) the dimensions of the wurst and main entree cans.

Thanks.

Housil,

My bad. I recall there was a thread on the NVA board about your thread here.

called K-Portion
"K" is for the east German word "Komplekt".
As there was no (west) German word for Komplekt, there is also no English one.
That comes from russian комплект that means something like last reserve.
