Air Traffic Control was my area, though we did have to put up with some of
your lot when Ark Royal was in dock as we were a Buccaneer base.

Yes, that clarifies a lot. I can stop looking for some place where it might
exist in MySQL and concentrate on the design until you are ready for the SQL
building. I think that some of my queries might be a bit of a challenge and
might require revisiting the design and data structure.

I'm not looking for anyone to solve my problems, just to help me along while
I learn the basics and then the tricks.
