"Shadowing our experienced engineers in the Field Operations team, you will get the opportunity to learn from the experts and may be involved in some exciting and high-profile projects and major events such as the Formula 1 Grand Prix", the advert promises.

Virgin Galactic's 'WhiteKnightTwo', the mothership of 'SpaceShipTwo', will take to the air for the first time in the next 10 days. Sir Richard Branson, pictured here with a model of the revolutionary, all-carbon composite, four-engine jet, hopes to be at the Mojave Air & Space Port in the Californian desert for the first flight and plans to make a test flight himself. Once the testing has been carried out, the mothership will move on to take 'SpaceShipTwo', the passenger rocket, which fits between its twin fuselages, for its first practice run. Virgin said 248 people have paid $200,000 (£130,000) each for flights, which could begin within two years.

It's good to know that in a world of perpetual change, there are still a few constants to which we can all desperately cling for stability. Specifically, that come hell or high water, British Airways and Virgin Atlantic will always be at each other's throats. So much so that even before Willie Walsh announced yesterday that BA and American Airlines were applying for anti-trust immunity (ATI) in order to forge a new partnership on flights between Europe and North America, Sir Richard Branson, Virgin's boss, had already had a tantrum about the idea.
