nightmode,

This storm...Spun that around on the tarmac, relocated the bungs and gave a free compressor wash.

Are you saying that the storm moved the metro around on the spot like a weather vane?

If so, must have been a heck of a storm, lucky it didn't throw the old girl over.:ooh:

25th Mar 2008, 11:50
It was parked in the corner facing the same way as the truck!:eek:... Moved about 10m and 120 deg.
Had a stack of fuel in it which probably helped keep it down.

Couldn't believe it had moved around so much - I was sure I hadn't had that much of a shocker with parking in the morning :}

Possibly a sentimental topic?

I have a question about the aircraft in the topic.
A Queensland Aerospace Piper Tomahawk...
(It's been deregistered by CASA... registration delegated to new Aircraft)

Firstly: What is it's future? The dump? Or is it possibly good for spare parts?
Thats how it was when I first joined RAC, now it's since been moved onto the apron, and its wingtips have been smashed off.

I haven't seen such a derelict aircraft, and I really think it should have been sold off to someone who wanted it (for a cheap price), than to be left to corrode away in the sea air.

anyone here have any memories of it before it became a rust magnet?

ok guys is there an easy & basic way to upload a photo to a thread? I do remember seeing 'how to' posted somewhere but it seemed quite long winded to do.

I know there's the little icon for inserting an image but is it possible to upload from ones own computers stored images or does it have to be via a URL?

any idea's plz?

You ought to be out chasing girls down the street rather than sitting as home staring at pretty ones on the net!:E If yr heading towards a pro pilot career then I can advise you to stick with the net, not too many have lost their brief over the net but plenty have been cleaned out by girls:p

I'll post it up somewhere in the near future and then i'll PM you both.

Jaba and the Chuckler broke the Bonza

Lets face it...the alternator karked it...who would dare suggest it had not earned a rest..prolly pumped more amps out than any 10 other IO520 alternators...prolly worked harder than the prototype did during certification 'testing to destruction':E

Or maybe, as the good Doc transferred pretty well the entire nav suit (2 GPS' and a tablet-although I suspect there were more:} ) over to his brothers Mooney, the alternator felt it had been put out to pasture and died of a broken heart?;)

It just occurred to me- The Bonanza gets called a Boner so does that make the Mooney a Mooner or a Moaner?

'tis truly amazing how many washers, nuts, bits of lock wire, cotter pins and, previously blocked, drain holes you find in the bottom of a fuselage when you clean 38 odd years worth of grime out of them.


Since I have personally run into a screw falling from an aircraft above, I'd believe it.

VH-MEP, Jun 11 1986, Over Ardrossan.

Result...hole in windshield and buggered prop blade.

Aircraft that dropped the screw was a Tobago from AFTS.

I have seen others able to embed videos from youtube on other threads on PPRuNe so it can be done, which is why I popped the question ... I'll keep hunting for the solution anyway
What you mean by embeded
Do you mean this (http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=TFjycL0qEgs)

Some forums embed the youtube onto the thread, the code is eg. kTWOk6slU_Y It embeds the video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kTWOk6slU_Y so you see it just like an embedded photo so you can play the video from here without being redirected to youtube. It looks like this;

Lol, I reckon that old bucket of bolts would have dropped a few screws herself from time to time! Strange thing was though, when a Chieftain fell in a heap somewhere (or crashed as once was the case) or the Aerocommander went U/S, old MEP would be sent to the rescue.

And it went the other way as well.
One day I'd flown ACZ to Adelaide on the regular service, tidied up the aircraft and went into the terminal to gather passengers for the flight back to the gutter. Upon returning to the aircraft with the outbound passengers I found it gutted!
Half it's radios were missing.
Seems MEP's radios were out for maintenance and someone didn't want to lose a days training, so they just stole them from ACZ while my back was turned.

I did five mail runs in MEP after ACZ had that little bingle at Clifton Hills in the hands of a current QANTAS pilot (not female).

Guess what, after 5 channel runs I found it is possible to land a Seneca gracefully.

Hmm, that must have been before my time. The old saying goes that you never land a Seneca1 you only arrive in it, but I have occasionally watched some good S1 landings. By the same token I have also seen some absolute shockers!
BTW was anyone watching SBS last night? They were obviously strapped for things to put on in one of the doco programs, & dredged up footage of the mail run that was done back in the days of ASA/Air North. Mango was at the helm that trip.

No idea what the third one is.

Aerostars certainly look like sex personified don't they? When everything is working they are great, if serious, fun to fly too but keeping everything working is VERY money intensive. Is that an unpressurised 600 or a 602P with the Machen mods? The two I flew started life as 602Ps and then were turned into 680/700Ps via the Machen modifications. The difference between 680 and 700P is the props.

"Oh sh*t the wing has fallen off!

FTDK, yeah something like that! Often the parachute is only warn for comfort/padding in the cockpit. When you learn to glide in Aus, you generally go up without parachutes - madness hey! I own my own parachute these days, so on all gliding flights it comes with me :)

Here's a picture of my old mans glider, about to launch @<hidden> Kingaroy. It's a Schempp-Hirth Ventus 2cxM. The engine is a 52hp Solo engine, and at MTOW of 565kg it'll easily climb out at over 500fpm (early day self-launchers always struggled to get this). Once at around 2000AGL, the prop is lined up vertically and retracted back into the fuselarge. This transforms the glider into a more traditional 'pure sailplane'..

If memory serves me correctly, its blended with a photo from a test where a bomb was detonated in a retired fuselage. A good effort though!

I hope it is a photoshop jobby though. If it was real it couldn't have ended well.:sad:

Dave,

That would explain why there are all those lines where the explosion is but not on the rest of the fuselage. Very well done though.

Thanks for the mention of CJT.
Yeah mate of mine D.Brffa owned that 185 ...and yes it was to go to the south pole back in the eighties to pick up the guys who were retracing the explorer SCOTTS footsteps. When the ship carrying it arrived down in the ice the ships hull was crushed and CJT was hauled off the ship in the nick of time.
Soutern Quest or something the ship was called.
Briffa and I were both based at RAAF amberely ground staff in those days.
Many a DZ jump trip was flown in that machine. Briff kept it running like a swiss watch and being a LAME helped.
Not too many pilots were allowed to fly her as she was a real horn machine with a "HAIRY CHESTED IMAGE" as one young lady used to say
Glad to hear she is still flying.

Anyone see Air Crash Investigation last night? 767 runs out of gas and lands on a deserted airfield near Winnipeg.

For the sake of allegedly-good TV, they showed simulated cockpit views. Problem was, any pilot looking at those views would know that he was already dead: They were from about 1500 ft, when the aircraft was supposed to be at 10000 ft.
