This drought is a problem, the lake had water in it when we landed.

I said, GLASSY water landing, not Grassy water landing.

The Beaver on floats was alone in it's field.

"Now what?"

"Huh. You're right, the water is over there."

"Told you I could do it."

as the book says -

when it's no go ahead and no go behind , put her down anywhere rather than press on and become a statistic.

An early failed attempt to fly through a mountain.Fortunately the crew lived through this this failed attempt to fly through the mountain.Later attempts at shortcuts through mountains using larger aircraft have also failed.Sadly some of those crews did not always arriving back at base for beverages and supper.

The good news is that we've added another bow to the F35's versatility. The bad news is we've had to downgrade a few other specs....

To the point that anyone so much as mentioning his name will find their post deleted tout suite ! I fear that Der Slashenmeister overstepped the mark. :(

Why does the person standing on the float appear to have his trousers round his ankles?

It appears that way but I think he might be wearing Gaiters.

"Damn Yanks! They finally drank Canada Dry." :}


(Now, what did I mean by that? Canada Dry is a popular ginger ale which was invented in Toronto, circa 1904. "Yours 'till the U.S. drinks Canada Dry" was a popular saying in the 1950s."

No problem landing a float plane on grass, it's done all the time for maintenance flights to a grass strip in some places. Getting it off again is the bugger................

PS: One was taught this whilst getting one's float plane rating years ago.

PPS: The take off from grass isn't really a bugger either, the maintenance guys use a dolly, like this:

So there you are, sitting in a floatplane on a dolly about to take off... and a black cat crosses the runway! :ooh: Interesting scenario :}

Looks like the LH water rudder has been knocked off. Possibly in the heat of the moment he didn't check they were up.

So in the heat of the moment slash has been knocked off too. PB . .. can you find out how long is his sentence? (It is so frustrating to be banned and be limited to reading the guff, unable to comment. Unable to state your defence, too. As if anyone would care, though.)

Why are you wearing gaiters sir? Well, I couldn't find my chaps ,,old chap.
But if you had, you would probably have tried putting those chaps on back the front, knowing you, sir. You devil.

A long sentence? Once we were told we were to be moved from a Sydney base to a Melbourne one. One wag said -

Melbourne is a word. Not a sentence.

What is the name of that wine you've been drinking down there? You seem to be able to construct sentences quite ably even if the thoughts are disjointed.


Sounds like the kind of wine that passes quite well at a cocktail party.
