This is a bit of an ugly duckling for some.

There can't be many of these left after what I read on Wikipedia.

Mate! I recon the MU2 is one of the coolest looking twins around...and quite misunderstood (which probably leads to it's rather bleak safety record). If I were looking for a personal twin to rocket around in then one of these would be near if not top of the list!

Just remember....engine out on departure....don't clean it all up!! Retract the flaps and you dump what little lift those C172 sized wings develop!!

Have to agree with you. A couple of years ago that well respected poster here, gaunty, put up a link to a US publication on another topic. However, it also included a detailed flight test of the MU2 following a lot of criticism and court cases in the US.

I was fascinated enough to download the article and print a copy. Basically, it did all that it was supposed to but did not suffer fools. You needed to know exactly what you were doing in an emergency and not follow some generic emergency procedure. I think the problem in Australian operations was ice and being too slow to recognise the problem which was often fatal. Again, a case for knowing what to do and when you have to do it.

Properly flown they are an impressive piece of kit with some stunning performance. I often think I would like to get my hands on one, with the proper training, which in Australia can be doubtful.

Here's a post from another PPRuNe Forum:

NOTE:

To post a picture on PPRuNe, it has to be on a website already - whether your own or someone else's. If it's not, all is not lost ...... read on.

If the picture already on a website .....

It will have an URL (the unique 'address' of that pic on the web)
To find the URL (using Windows):
Right-click on the picture and select 'Properties'
You'll see lots of info, including the URL.
Highlight and Copy the entire URL.
NB: Always highlight from the beginning or you may not get the full URL if it's long.

If the picture is on your hard disk .....

Option 1: Find a friend with a web site who will 'host' the picture for you They'll send you the URL for your picture so you can then post it.
or

Option 2: Use a photo-hosting site.

Photobucket seems to be the best, very simple to use and it's free.
An 'offshoot' of Photobucket is TinyPic but as far as I can see this one does not have a facility to resize the image.

Once you've loaded your picture on the host, it will give you the URL - or you can use the procedure described above.

Photobucket also allows you to reduce the size of any pics which are too big for the PPRuNe web page.

NB: Some photo-hosting services host your pics but won't allow you to link to them from another site.

Size is important!

Picture size must not exceed 800x600 pixels MAXIMUM, to avoid the PPrune thread viewing window becoming too large.

You can see the size of any image (in Windows) by right-cliking on the image and selecting 'properties'.

There are many ways to resize images, and since most photogs have digicams now and these normally come with image handling programmes it should not present too much of an intellectual challenge to produce the correct size!

There are many Shareware image handling programmes plus lots of FREE downloadable ones. A simple 'Google' search or read of a computer magazine or two will produce plenty of ideas. There are also several FREE 'on-line' image re-sizing sites. Here are a few links for you:-

1 Izhuk.com

2 Resizeimage.4u2ges.com

3 Resize2mail.com

4 Online-image-resize.kategorie.cz

5 Graphicssoft.about.com

PLEASE NOTE that since these are FREE they do impose certain restrictions on file types and sizes and normally require you to permit their 'cookies' onto your machine.

Now to Post!:

Begin to post as normal.

Click the IMG button - one of the buttons above the text box. NB: Ensure you have something other than 'BASIC EDITOR' selected in your 'User CP'/'Edit Options'

An 'Input Box' will appear.

Copy the URL into the address line as instructed.

Click OK.

Add whatever text you wish and Submit.

At first, as with any new process involving computers, you'll probably go through some moments.


Common Problems:

No 'Image' icon etc on the 'Reply' screen:

Wrong 'Editor' mode selected.

Picture doesn't display:

Your post may show a link, not a picture - edit your post.

Check to see if 'URL' appears anywhere in the web address of the picture. If it's there at all, it will be there twice. Remove both.

(You've used information from the URL, but those letters should not appear in the final address or you'll get a link instead of a picture.)

You have IMG..../IMG around the image:

You have copied an IMG tag from Photobucket rather than the URL tag. To get rid of it, either edit out the excess [IMG] [/ IMG] in your post or replace the code using the URL tag.

Copyright claims etc

In PPrune, we don't allow pictures which have any commercial links embedded or attached. Please 'edit' these out.


As usual, a PM to your local 'mod' will hopefully result in assistance if you get stuck!

There were two that went in in WA. The one that you refer to would be a freight charter bieng piloted by a then very recently retired DOT Transport safety inspector/investigator who was very well known in WA. There was also a young pilot catching a ride to a new job up north on board.

Crashed just north of Meekatharra.

For that you plan a visit to the US to spend some time with this man.

Reece is the nation's foremost authority on piloting MU2s. He has logged more than 33,000+ flight hours - 18,000+ in the Mitsubishi MU-2B.


Google Reece Howell is interested.

I think that Reece Howell was one of the people consulted for the article I referred to. Without digging through piles of papers to find my copy I think he provided the aircraft for the article and was the instructor.

February 2006 issue of Business & Commercial Aviation magazine had an article on the MU-2 titled "Whats wrong with the MU-2?". Came up all positive with the proviso "given correct training". Article can be found here http://www.aviationweek.com/aw/gener...s/mu2_0206.xml
Sydney gal of my aquaintance Corola Hume had deal of time in type.
