That'd be a feral LAME accompanied by random wench in a Yakketty Yak 52, somewhere just north of the intersection of McDonalds Rd (bottom RH corner) and Vintage Drive.

HT Powerline corridor is roughly a base leg for RWY 17 at Cessnock

A visitor to KVPS on Friday for some fuel.







Just beautiful, even the inside of the undercarriage doors were polished! And as most here know the sound is beautiful. It had just completed a heritage flight with and F-15 and F-16 for the 33FW reunion.

I got to follow it out and watch the takeoff as no. 2 behind it when it left. Albeit I was only in a C172 feeling very inadequate!

Cheers

ForkTailedDrKiller and flywatcher...regarding your post on losing sat's. I noticed in the pick at the time you had an aerial cord running up onto the windscreen past the 430.

I have a 530 a 430 and a 296 in my bag. Well i have noticed when I got out the 296 one day and connected the external aerial I lost satelite reception on the 530 and 430.

I turned the 296 off and put the 530 on the satellite signal page, all working fine. I then flicked on the 296 and instantly watched the 530 lose all satellites and then promt me with the warning.

hmmmm???

That's a lead from the PCAS!

The 430 antenna is on the roof and the 496 antenna is on the dash - been that way for 4 years with no apparent negative effect.

First one is Mt Hagen ? probably about 92 judging from the Kamov

Second ..Agreed caloundra, but more like mid 80's. Thought barry sold the Hillers 'bout then.
