Re post 2455.
I'm not sure why or if I'm the only one but the photo's won't display. All the other post photo's from other respondents do but not yours!
Pity, as I would be very interested to see them. Any chance of you emailing them to me? I will send my email address by PM if it is OK.
I have just got a Panasonic laptop (CF-18) with Bluetooth GPS and running Oziexplorer with both Natmap 250K Raster mosaic maps and Airservices Aust Charts (digitised by MAPTRAX).
Sorry for all the jargon.
I would be interested in how you get the Garmin 296 to connect to your Laptop.
Also how has been your experience with Fugawi. Oziexplorer is complicated if you use all options but OK if just use the basics.
I have tried a PDA with Oziexplorer but bloody annoying/useless. Always seems to play up, usually at the most inconvenient time.

Edit - photo's are now there so ignore this plea. Must have been a server PPRUNE problem.

Hangar clearout. If you can find an intact aircraft, take it away!

They are not bad, actually. Except for these nasty scratches if your fellow club members don't care about stuff

"Interestingly a nasal cannula would not maintain my O2 saturation above about 88% - had to use a mask - that kept my O2 saturation at 95%."

Now pray tell FTDK, how the hell did you you work that out!!
Amongst all the assembled electronic/avionics in the photo, I'm buggered if I can make out a blood gas analyzer... although it wouldn' surprise me in the least if you had one stashed in the baggage locker.

"As in where the FUGAWI"
Yet another classic utterance from Chuck, which makes me piss myself laughing and reinforces my wife's view that I am mad by laughing at a computer

Beachy - If you look in the bottom left-hand corner of the second pic of the FTDK panel, you'll see I have an oximeter lead clipped on my finger!

"Yet another classic utterance from Chuck, which makes me piss myself laughing and reinforces my wife's view that I am mad by laughing at a computer"

When I retire I am going to become Chuck's personal paparazzi - I will follow him around with a tape recorder and catch all of his "classic utterances" for my best selling book!

Hey Beachie,

Would you believe ....he does have one. Great little machine. We tested it on the way back from Perth, seems my slightly younger lungs worked a fraction better. But have to say this, it was not much in it. The old doc aint too bad for an old fella!

We did some tests at various density heights and 10,000' is definately the limit for warm weather and low pressure for long periods. Would hate to be an unfit smoker as well....

Somehow I think you are not joking.......

The somewhat aptly named "River Road" between Longreach and Muttaburra!

XXX,

Wow, yet another hangar with old, dirty Trackers folded up. There's a hangar absolutely filled with them, and one poor lonely Tracker sitting outside in the rain..

Looks like it was pretty pleased to see the V tail though

Would hate to be an unfit smoker as well.
When I was flying the medivac falcon jet around asia we was sat one day in Kathmandu (note the elevation) and the Doctor was explaining the oximeter to the patient (a young child we were evacuating to Singapore) while we waited for paperwork that would allow our departure. I had just come back from having a nail by the fence and said "Gissa look" and clipped it on my finger...it read 96 or 97%. Doctor said that can't be right your finger is dirty...so I took off one shoe and sock and clipped it to a toe (I was clowning around for the sake of the sick kiddie)...100%. That had her fecked...she was banging on the top of the box going "Nope...can't be" bang bang..."You're a smoker"....bang.

That's her, Doc Beng, on the left (my right) and Su Lin the Nurse...the med crew that flew with us about 90% of the time. Great people. This is taken at Taipei from memory. Beng had a coffee shop she owned on the side and bought great yummie snacks for enroute and brewed fantastic coffee in the galley.



This was taken climbing out from Karachi enroute to Quetta on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border...the Doc (different one...an excellent Sikh Doctor named Hanik Singh) has just come up and sat in the jumpseat and told me about the patient we were going to get...a Chinese Arms dealer who blew himself up showing the Pakis how something designed to go bang works. We flew him to Beijing via Dhaka and Kunming.



The Falcon parked at Kota Kinabalu early one morning...my favorite aeroplane ever and the best job I will ever have...ruined by beancounters as usual.

From an article written about our beloved Worlds Longest Mail Run.
Strolling towards the plane, I passed the hotel's van. There, painted in large letters on the side of the van was the name of the local tour company - "Wheredafukarwi Tours". For you skeptics, I have a photo to prove this!

So where was the photo? Ah, you gotta love these journos - I'm sure any Leigh Creekers would be interested to know that the population of the town was 4,000, & that it was deemed a city! And A airborne doctor is summoned from the nearest Flying Doctor Hospital. Really?
