Anorak on and buttoned at the collar................

The first picture is a CASA CN235 MPA (licence built in Indonesia) belonging to Skadron Udara Patroli Maritim dan AEWACS based at Hasanuddin Indonesia.

The other aeroplane is a OV-10 Bronco (North American). I didn't know they had any Bronco's left. Have seen them at Batam over the years along with a few Nomads.

Anorak off and return to normal.

Thanks George

It was only the CASA and the 3 trucks I was unsure of, the Bronco is from the Philippines. They were taken at Clark during the hotair balloon festival.

Smile Re . Avocet aircraft

Hi , just like to say that the avocet 's jabiru engine has got liquid cooled heads & SDSmultipoint fuel injection , & I've ordered an Airmaster prop ,
I've also redesigned the turret ,looks more like a lake type ,less drag than the 4 poster ,
The a/Incidence of the tail only looks excessive ,as the nose wheel is slightly lower so that on the ground you get better access to the back, makes the tail look overly high while on the ground .
I've also increased the dyheadral to 2.2deg & moved the wing 30 mm forward ,doesn't feel as nose heavy with two up and no cargo .
I been flying around with a beewee 100 Yamaha scooter in the back as well ,doesn't make a lot of differance to the trim , so it doesn't really need the jabiru trim , anyway , thanks for the feed back .

Fuel dump valve is close enough, isn't it 40Deg? Just pick a suburb and come in low.

Ah, that brings back memories. I was lucky enough to go for a fly in this machine way back in 06' while on holidays in the states. We booked tickets and was then driven to a neighbouring airfield (Appleton Airfield??) to board. We departed and flew in the direction of the Oshkosh Airshow where we orbited for a while before flying back to Appleton Airfield.

WOULD GIVE MY RIGHT ARM TO DO THAT AGAIN !!!!!
