Sure is an oldie , just like us. That's how we knew it existed cos we had seen it quite some years ago . Well worth showing again as a lot would not have seen it and it's so good.

Remember seeing it a few years back, but good to read it again.

And I have actually been to Eromanga! Had a drink at the Pub (Lemon Squash) as it was only just after 1300 hrs and I was driving a Water truck on the Seismic Crew I was working for at the time.

Many moons ago I was on a 17 day trip ANC TOKYO ANC and decided to go to Sarfend for Sunday lunch and some conjugals so bought a ticket on the opposition and my old employer.
Three quarters of the way across the polar/ North Atlantic route I visited the front end.
Whilst chewing the cud on “the good old days on the gripper” the CSD arrived with a card for the captain...one from the children’s amusement kit with sticky back child on the front. Written in a small child’s scrawl was “Dear captain, my name is susan and I am seated in 44E and I am being looked after Dug and moly and I am having a super time and can’t wait to get home to my friends at home but PLEASE don’t F##k up the landing up again”
In a similar vein;
Attached is a photo of a card I recent found that me son had written me 35 years ago and illustrates that being a legacy long haul pilot wasn’t always easy on the family.
