I would be delighted to buy SLB a beer, next time he is in Calgary, but in the meantime, since I have nothing to post, I'll let SLB take over as the Handling Pilot.

I saw a Mig-17 flying at Oshkosh three years ago and marveled at the freedom that the FAA provides for rich boys and their toys. Where else could you see a privately registered Mig-17 flying around, low-level, after dark, with a ten-foot flame coming out of the jet pipe?

I42 I will take on that beer but you can wait putting it cold as I have never visited Canada before and I doubt if I would visit for my job ever.
Back from sports I can post the following:
or should I post this under the “what engine” or the “which person” thread?

I have a longstanding ambition to visit the Rijksmuseum. Perhaps we can get together when I come to the Netherlands.

I shamefully admit I have not yet visited the Rijks myself.
We should have a look at the Koolhoven together!
Send me a PM anytime you firm up your ambitions.

"I have a longstanding ambition to visit the Rijksmuseum"

"I shamefully admit I have not yet visited the Rijks myself"

I think someone should inform the Mods - are these the sort of people they want if they are looking to attract advertisers??????

Asturias, I've never visited Ferrara either. Does that count against me as well?

Everyone to their own tastes!

You really SHOULD visit Ferrara - it's quiet, you can get around on push-bike, there is the usual assortment of castles and art galleries and of course, amazing food. I spend as much time as I can there .

I have visited the Rijksmuseum many times - most recently a special trip to see the Rembrandt Exhibition - ALL the Rembrandts they own - pictures, sketches, prints - truly amazing.

Calgary - been there as well - nice place but not sure I could take the weather every winter.....................

back on thread looks like ea200 is on the right lines

It is a VC-10 - the biggest cockpit I've ever seen - you could hold a barn dance in it - I presume the space was for the Butler and other staff?

Over to you

In an effort to narrow it down, is it German?
