Dr. I posted a photo of WTF at Geelong Vic a couple of months ago. It must get around. Where is that one?

For those that haven't seen one yet, the new E-Jet dropped into Albury while I was there today at the airshow.

"Oh sh*t the wing has fallen off!
I'm outta here! Seeya mate!

Enjoy the ride down!"

FTDK, yeah something like that! Often the parachute is only warn for comfort/padding in the cockpit. When you learn to glide in Aus, you generally go up without parachutes - madness hey! I own my own parachute these days, so on all gliding flights it comes with me

Here's a picture of my old mans glider, about to launch @ Kingaroy. It's a Schempp-Hirth Ventus 2cxM. The engine is a 52hp Solo engine, and at MTOW of 565kg it'll easily climb out at over 500fpm (early day self-launchers always struggled to get this). Once at around 2000AGL, the prop is lined up vertically and retracted back into the fuselarge. This transforms the glider into a more traditional 'pure sailplane'..

Dad's flown 988km in this bird, and fastest speed around a task of 144km/hr!

Soaring
When the hat badges equal the AUW of the glider you are cleared to go.

So true

LOL

Knulp, that is true everywhere I have been gliding! Badge collecting seems to be a sub culture of all gliding enthusiasts.

Aint that the truth re: badges.. However, we've got a more appropriate name for those guys in the gliding world..

OFITTHS - Old Farts in Terry Towling Hats!!

You become a 'senior' in gliding on your 26th birthday, so there's not much time left for me

Do any of you sheep-shaggin C185 drivers know the whereabouts of the ex VH-CJT?

Arrived in NZ via a stint on the ice in Antarctica?

But I thought Aussie was the place where men are men and the sheep are nervous??
You might be talking about ZK-FNX, currently on skydiving ops in the North Island somewhere, I believe that was down the ice before arriving in NZ. I think the original log books are still down there, in the ship which went down.......down there.

Is that Air Canada one for real or a good mock up in photoshop? Surely not real

If memory serves me correctly, itís blended with a photo from a test where a bomb was detonated in a retired fuselage. A good effort though!

Dunno Jaba. Like I said they were just emailed to me.

I hope it is a photoshop jobby though. If it was real it couldn't have ended well.

Dave,

That would explain why there are all those lines where the explosion is but not on the rest of the fuselage. Very well done though.

The last one is a scene from some movie whose name escapes me at the moment.
