Your appreciation (or lack thereof) of Sunfish’s insight, would most likely hinge on whether or not you were a QF employee. He/she wanted my employer to go broke and take all us all with them because of some bizarre resentment that QF didn’t fly to Melbourne.

I never found anything they wrote insightful. Good riddance I’d say. But they have done this before. I’m sure he will be back.

I’m happy for Sunfish that he’s left. Hopefully he’ll now be able to find something more positive, healthy and productive to direct his energies into.
Just under 8000 posts, of which about 7950 would be histrionic denunciations of Qantas, CASA, the ATSB, the RAAF, and the Avalon airshow, suggests a bloke who’s not in a very good place. I wish him well and hope things get better for him.

You're a good bloke. I've had my fair share of frustrations with the guy but I tend to agree with this.

To put it another way - he will just start another user name. Addiction and FOMO will see to that.

Interesting that he has 8000 odd posts in a professional pilot forum, yet isn’t one.

Yes a little bit like a pilot going on to a forum for train drivers and getting miffed when no one will listen.

Come back Sunfish, just accept that like the real world, this forum has its share of tossers. Just because people disagree does not make you wrong (or right).

I'm sorry to see him go.

It will be impossible for him to post under a new user name, without being instantly recognisable.

He has had a great deal of grief to deal with, that may have coloured his postings at times. But he does have more professional experience than most of you will give him credit for. You lot love to think because you've got an ATPL and a jet command or right seat that you're experts in everything else. It's the Type A pilot way.

I don't know him, I know of him and I know his qualifications through a few sources. I reckon he'd be an interesting dude to have a beer with.

And why the **** not can a bloke in his 70's have a chat about his travels, whether they're first, business or economy, he's earned it. If you see this is as rubbing your nose in it, you're a bit fragile.

Good grief

Hoosten , how can you so completely lack self awareness?

Maybe sunfish is right about one thing. Prune has outlived its usefulness.

Too many unstable impostors.

George, you're nothing but a miserable prick. Retired, know it all, Bachelor of Science (with Hons, of course), baby booming thief (who paid for your Hons? Your children? Amortised over how many decades? Who's paying their HECS debt? Unlikely you)

PPRuNe, you reckon it's solving aviations ills eh? Or meant to?

We have gone from speculation on who is going to buy VA to psychoanalysing Sunfish to boomer bashing in 4 pages. Classic ADHD.
Mods how about canning this thread? There are 6 threads running on the subject of VA alone - enough to tax most attention spans.

Whatever ya reckon mate. I thought you would have gathered by now I don't care too much what the likes of you think of me.

Reason: Grammar.

Really? You should try it someday. Be selective though, there are some real wankas out there.
