Thanks VF; In#4377 there appears to be a clearer `flatter` area behind the tail(100m) as opposed to the hillside,although there appear to be pylons/wires in the distance with possible departure that way or off to the left of the direction the a/c is facing. depending on any wind direction..?

What's left (if anything) ask yerself what do I need eXtra to escape & bingo, put Her down & off load something or, in this case turning it into wind & using the footy field sized pad in front of You would have probably saved a perfectly good Machine

I think they call it 'situational awareness' in the military.
Very few people have it to the extent this environment requires.
Respect!

Areeba Areeba Mexican stand-off

G'day etudiant.....Yip it's certainly 'situational awareness' & it's also basic common bloody sense for survival in a limited power environment & there are numbers for this, just do it by the numbers, ain't that hard Cheers...HappyHappy

Hi VF..Going back through some of your shots I saw a Super Puma from the Royal Flight? Is this one of the two currently for sale along with assorted Alouettes.the old SA330, and some Mi-17s. Any idea what is replacing it?

So who was the VIP in 4386 who required armed guards?




Sort of reminds me of waiting at Tumlingtar for a flight to Katmandu and the first plane heard was the daily Chinese reconn flight and the second was supposed to be ours .... the tents came down in record time but when the door opened two gentlemen stepped out with sub machine guns at the ready .... it was the banks flight and ours was hours later, oh well!
