thanks ROB-x38 !!

the P3 is in many ways comparable to a Yak-52 in terms of bang for the bucks.

it's extremely rugged and well built, it's very responsive to pilot inputs and has no nasty traits.
control forces are reasonably light up to the Va of 160kts, thereafter, especially in the roll axis, some strength is required.
it can be dived to 270kts (Vne) and can take +6g/-3g.
stall speed in landing configuration is 62kts.
the only drawbacks are the inverted oil/fuel system, which is limited to 15 seconds, and the modest engine power (240PS), which can make for some interesting situations on a MTOW of 3'500lb....but then, one energy management skills tend to dramatically improve....

i would recommend the P3 to anyone

I shot this a few weekends ago, when the weather was actually nice for once.


(Recommend right-click/save target as, it's 40Mb!)

Another St Ivian - great vid! What a/c is that? And where was it filmed?

Shortstripper - another nice vid! Something a bit different than what we've had up to now!

great video!!! I had the pleasure of visiting Slovenia and Crotia last summer for a few days - unfortunately, i got no flying but they were both beautiful countries and from what i can see from your video it looks like a great place to fly! How do the costs compare there to other places in the EU?

Thanks for the vid!

Yup, great video indeed. Not sure about the "raving" though... I'm trying to reconcile my wilder pre aviation days. Somehow banging Euro-trance doesn't quite sit with flight planning, checklists, A Checks, log books... think I'm getting old...

I have a 7min video of a flight from Perth (Scotland) around the Ochil hills in a PA28
Not the most exiting of videos but hey everything counts i guess!

I don't have anywhere to host it so if anyone has a spare 70megs of webspace somewhere let me know

Thumbs up

Just want to thank everyone for making these videos available, I think they are great. I know Im a little late off the mark, but have only just been able to get broadband in our village recently! I have had some problems with a few of the links though...

Steve R, I only get 10Mb of your Flyaroundtheblock50Mb for some reason, the vid cuts out just as a microlight lands??

Another st Ivan, I cant get your link to work, says Cant download from the page, IE access refused???

Thank again everyone,

Regards, SD..

Here's a short video (7mins) of a flight I did from Perth, round the Ochil Hills and over Stirling University in Warrior G-BNON.

Apologies for the shaky video camera (first time the Mrs had used one I think )

Perth - Perth

I am without broadband until 26th May, when BT finally get round to upgrading the local exchange. When it does arrive I will upload some larger videos, but until then here's a couple of short ones which I hope you'll enjoy.

1. Clouds (3.5 Mb)
Not actually flying whilst filming, but it looks pretty good. Taken at Fairoaks in Surrey (EGTF) on 18/04/04, this is one hour of footage compressed into 19 seconds. Take a look and you'll see why.

2. Lukla 2001 (11.3 Mb)
This video (1 min 14 secs) is of a take off from Lukla 'Airport' in Nepal. The runway is angled at 20 degrees as it's too short to take the Twin Otters that fly in and out. With a cliff at one end, and a massive drop off at the other, theres no such thing as a go around. If you've been there you'll know what I mean, and if you haven't I would thoroughly recommend it......., oh and the trekking too.

jimmydacraw - a very nice video indeed! Thanks to the Mrs too

Windle Poons - Ive seen photos of that approach before i think ... it looks exciting - ill have to add it to the list of things i'd like to do before ... well, you know! What aircraft was is that you took off in? And what would happen in the event of an EFATO?? I suppose thats why you have the 2 engines....do singles operate from there too?

The aircraft was a Twin Otter, and to my knowledge there are no single engined fixed wings operating to/from there. There was however an AS350 buzzing around between Lukla and Pheriche (4250 metres) whilst I was there, and I may have some video of it. I'll check and if so post it here.

EFATO is not an option. You do have about 2000 feet to play with as soon as you clear the numbers, but unfortunately at the bottom is a very narrow river valley, with the next piece of flat ground being Kathmandu.

I do have some video of the landing, but due to the contrast between the cabin and the outside, the runway is mostly 'flared out'. There is a brief glimpse of the runway, which fills the frame, and shows the 10-15 degree angle of approach. No nice flares and gentle touchdowns here, as you can't afford to miss the numbers. It is not so much landing as flying into the ground in a controlled manner.

Despite the poor quality, I'll post the video of the landing in the next couple of days.

Here's one of mine from last summer.

It's a flight I did along the low-level VFR route from Montpellier to Marseille, then along past the Calanques near Cassis to land at Aix en Provence.

A beautiful trip, especially over the Camargue delta.

The music is Erik Satie's Gnossienne No 1.

Ferry Flight across north Atlantic

My friend Torben regularly flys Cirrus aircraft to Europe.

My second Cirrus we flew over together. http://www.cirrus147.com/ferry_flight.htm

Last week, Torben brought another over. When he "coasts out" he likes to play a particular tune through the aircraft systems (Cirrus aircraft hand a HiFi input to the intercom, and stereo noise canceled headsets!)

This video http://homepage.mac.com/torbenkiese/iMovieTheater1.html

Was his last trip edited to fit with that tune.

The scenes are:

o Aircraft in Delivery Bay at Cirrus Design
o Duluth Departure over Lake Superior
o Re Fueling in Canada
o Snowy approach into Goose bay down the Churchill river.
o Driving to the B&B in Goose Bay
o IFR departure from Goose Bay
o Cloud Break to become VFR on top on route to Narsarsuaq Greenland.
o Low Level approach below low cloud down the Fjord to Narsarsuaq
o Landing 07 Narsarsuaq
o Refueling
o Civilization again - Phew! - football, people, the Hotel and buildings in Reykjavik
o En Route Stornoway
o ATC in Stornoway
o IFR into Biggin Hill.
o Home with sister in London
o Closing Scenes

I have a flying video that I made last year while I was downunder, how do I post it though? Under forum rules, I see that I am enabled for posting replies, but not permissioned for adding attachments.
