The Forktailed Dr Killer was parked in front of the Redcliffe Aeroclub all day Saturday
Does that have something to do with CC flying it from YBUD?

now who was it that made the FTDK u/s?
I think that maybe we should have posted a list of the pprune members with the photo, makes it a tad easier

LETS CONNECT THE PILOT WITH THE AIRCRAFT NOW!
(C210 to the left of the shot)

my turn: from the day (rego removed)

Dr Killer,

the alternator failure wasnt in any way related to the gobloads of electrical equipment you make that poor alternator power, was it?

Yeah ....and just on dark, with the three GPS turned off, No PC, ADF turned off, one radio turned off, all the nav lights landing lights and dash lights out........AND the DME being U/S.....I could not divert to YBBN so YRED had to do!

CC had to get his cigarette lighter out to see the map....which subsequently caught fire at 1500 over YCAB........

And Forkie is worried about his bloody alternator

Pyromaniac, I hope not!

The plan is for the FTDK to be back up north to celebrate Easter!

Hey 'Laz'....

Just LUV DAT 'PALM PILOT'.....

Good One!!! And well presented!!!



And 'Jaba' Reminds me of the time I landed at LEO (WA) ...NO Electrics...no flaps...no lights...very little moon... but... STILL'ERE!! (In a 172)
Graham in 'The Powerhouse' was very helpful!

So, 'Wal' the 172 is virtually self - non - destructible - for a 'normal' ole fart paylut...and...ya gets ta fly in da shade...

You guys think I am joking about the talking cigarette light don't you?

I swear...G296/G430/G496/PC tablet and a fecking talking cigarette lighter

On descent into Maroochy in IMC the Lady in da tower (Rapunzel?) asks for radial and distance. Ahhh but nothing beats system redundancy like a GPS for every seat in da plane...and I bet even Airbus' don't got a talking cigarette lighter

All jokes aside...nice day on Friday..lunch at Hervey Bay, pick up son of FTDK at Bundaberg, back to Maroochydore to pick up Brother of FTDK's Mooney (pictured) and the alternator spit the dummy leaving the Maroochy zone heading back to YCAB so we turned everything off and put the gear down while we had plenty of electrons and went to YRED...where if needed my Alternator was available. Some hope of getting the FTDK serviceable for the fly in but was not to be...LAME/work/Saturday...pick any two.

Great day at Jimbour...lots of laughs and good company...definately what it is ALL about.

Someone even arrived in a Glider...and left in a trailer
