And now for something completely different

Ok these are fairly old pictures which I have been meaning to post for some time. If anyone can tell where this is I will be surprised. The main object is the Auster which had a hard life and after the (third) crash in the top left it was retired to a well known museum. I know many of you would have walked past it. I wonít give a rego as it gives the game away if you Google search it. The gliding operations are a bit of a clue

TQ , SH and CD your out of the comp ..... plz donít blow it

B*gger the Auster, they're not worth the bother!

What's the yellow thing? A Mooney motorglider?

FTDK thats a Motor Falke motor glider. Its powered by a VW and with a name like that I think you could guess it's germany made ;-) The performance is no where near a Mooney....

It certainly is. With their skills they don't need fast jets.

I remember....... a few years back.... on my first solo X country...landing at Matamata...on a "closed" runway, cos it was sooooo bloody foggy, and I couldn't see the other part of the airfield

The Kamai's in the background are the giveaway, as is the clubhouse
