The Wabbit brings his own Equipment
“The Mission, “ said Lapinette," is of critical importance." "Importantly Important," agreed the Wabbit. "Do continue." "Alpine wabbits are reporting strange weather conditions." explained Lapinette. "They always do," said the Wabbit. "This time, they're right," said Lapinette. "You have to fly through the clouds and see what's happening," The Wabbit put a paw to his forehead and dramatically looked around. "Then," said Lapinette, impatiently, "you must seed the clouds with silver iodide and dry ice," "OK," said the Wabbit and made a clunky sound. "What on earth is that you’re holding so carefully,” said Lapinette. "It's my secret emergency weapon," said the Wabbit. "Lapinette stared at it for a long time.”What does it do?" she asked finally. The Wabbit shuffled his feet and hummed and hawed. "I made it myself," he said." "In a shed, by the looks of it," said Lapinette. "There's a shed round the back of the Department and it's full of useful stuff," smiled the Wabbit. Lapinette made a face at the Wabbit. "Are you expecting company?" she asked. "There's no-one up there you know." "I'll be up there," said the Wabbit. "True," said Lapinette and handed the Wabbit a book. "Here's the manual for the plane," she said. "List of buttons?" asked the Wabbit. "First page," said Lapinette. "Cartoons and competitions?" asked the Wabbit. "It's for adults," said Lapinette.
