Fair Go....the ones of Beach Kings A36 and the FTDK had green lumpy landscapes!

But you have a point!

Its might be a bit flat in your neck of the woods but its hardly red. Nice and green the other day when I was there.

If you want red you should be in my playground.

Yes Dog, the one and only.

Apparently its for sale, would be good to see it stay here, hopefully it will be at warbirds '08.
Looking forward to see how it goes without the Alpine guys running the show.

On a recent scenic we did down to YAYE, I thought it might be interesting to see which of you have got these particular aircraft in your logbook over the years. (Not the greatest picture i know)


From right to left:
WMP- C210
SOV- C210
CCL- PA31
ATP- PA31
HXH- C210
TZH- C402

Sorry for the thread drift.....but the KIWI's had been frequenting this thread a lot of late....so here is some humour

KC....were you texting ????

    NEW ZEALAND - It was a case of love's labour's lost, 21st-century style.

    The man thought he was in for an early Christmas present when he got an alluring text offering him the friendly company of two young women.

    They invited him around for some close attention, helpfully suggesting he get his gear off to save time. So off he went, reached the house, and threw his clothes through the front window prior to entering.

    Trouble is, it was all a joke and the householder wasn't two little lovelies pining for passion, but someone else altogether - who promptly called the police.

    The constabulary duly arrested the 31-year-old for being unlawfully on a property and he was later offered diversion.

    Some time later the police caught up with the 17-year-old text sender, who was also offered diversion, for misusing a phone, when she appeared in the Palmerston North District Court last week.

    Scary Chadzat but

    WMP - 432 hrs Brolga Air, Airnorth and Chartair (oh and 3 x alternator failures?)

    TZH - 510 hrs Airnorth and Chartair (AS-MEI-AS x 10,000,000,000, well lots anyway) does it still have the bent prop on it?

    and lastly, ATP - 1.5 hrs

    Does this make me a winner or a loo...................

    Chadzat - I logged quite a few hours in SOV when it was based in Home Hill. Last seen in Broome a couple of months ago. An honest performer but getting a little tired - seems to have scrubbed up quite nicely.

    Its spot in the hangar at Home Hill is now occupied by a 1991 A36.
