In a shock announcement this evening, the Ministry of Defence has admitted that an order of twenty Eurofighters ('Typhoons') destined for the Royal Saudi Air Force have been lost in the post.

A high-ranking source in the Ministry said, 'Delivery of aircraft is normally undertaken by regular RAF pilots, but in this case, it appears that some junior official put the aircraft in large brown envelopes for collection by the Post Office. Unfortunately the items were not sent Recorded or Registered, so their whereabouts at the moment is anyone's guess. I must emphasise that delivery by this method is not in our Best Practice Manual'

A Post Office official said. 'The aircraft may be worth £15billion, but if there is no proof of posting then compensation will be limited to £25 per envelope.'

The Ministry of Defence has asked the public to be on the look out for 20 very large, bulky envelopes, weighing about 14 tons each.
