Try the Air Services Webstie and download the relevant pages of the ERSA.

Or use Great Circle Mapper If you don't know the code, type in the airport name, and it will give you various options.

DSJ, I have seen some video captured with this: V.I.O. | Point-of-View (POV) Video Cameras and Helmet Cam Accessories

It looked good.

Sounds like my camera mount, electrical tape and a crappy tripod mounted to some internal cables behind the pilot and pax. I use a JVC Digital Standard Def Video camera with SD card recording. You can flip around the LCD screen so you can see what you are filming without having to turn around the camera, which also means less video editing. Will post youtube vid shortly.

If you're not on a Doctor's budget like the Doc, perhaps one of these would be the go. Great for youtube and PPrune.

Thanks cavok69!

cavok69, sorry mate, I missed your post when I first read the replies. I just spent 20 minutes on the site you recommended and it is excellent.

Cheers mate, and thanks.

(I guessed YMOR was Moree!)

My nom de prune is simply the IATA code for Albury NSW, the town I live in - YMAY in aeronautical terms.

Cheers.

Ah yes, so it is. I hadn't realised the Russians use the metric system in flight. Interesting.

Did some more flying this weekend in good ole US of A.

Went to a flying at Peachtree Georgia and had a ball. Flew down in a friends B55 baron and then at the end of the day he was kind enough to let me take his Cub for a fly around the park (and up the river and over the forest!). I had never flown a cub before and I weigh 240lbs and he is 6ft 4 and weighs 290lbs so the poor old 65HP just wouldn't cut it so he let me loose by myself. As I said the American Pilots I have met are simply the nicest and most generous of any I have met.

Anyway here is a few photos.

Enjoy.








Absolutely beautiful Curtis Robin.


Met a guy who owns a C195 (not this one) and if I had have been able to stay an extra day, could have got checked out in it for a bottle of Aussie wine!








And from the Cub, nearly at Oxygen height!




Baron not too badly equipped!


Baron and Cub owner's home field.


I must say the Cub is everything everyone says it is (good and bad!) Most fun I have had flying whilst I have been in the US. If anyone knows of a Cub project going back in Australia please PM me (and yes I am serious). Will be the perfect aircraft to rebuild in time to teach my girls to fly!

Cheers
CB

Forgot to add the DC3 in the photos was the one I was offered a seat in to go to Oshkosh! Alas I can't stay in the States the extra month, but what a way to get to Oshkosh!

That's a very nice and clear video, doc. Can you show us your camera mounting gear? Would love to do something like that.
Here you go DSJ!

I am thinking of marketing it as the ForkMount!

Hey FTDK, did you came into Moree on Friday? A bonanza was on the RNAV just when I was departing West. If so, a pity, I would liked to have showed off the 'wagon!
BTW, beaut photos, CB!

Geez Warbo, don't tell Chuckles (the Pilot Flying) - he will be in tears for missing a C185!

Chuckles,
I wish! Something about my boss sending me home early if I didn't make it to "work" today... but you are right, at least I would have been sent home with some 195 time in the logbook!

I still have three weeks left in "Aviation Nirvana" so we will see what happens. Shuttle launch is this Saturday so I am off to the Cape in a clapped out old T41A (180HP 172) on Friday (the 310 hasn't had the new engine installed yet!) . My mate was going to let me take his little Baby Beech Sierra, but it isn't back from the shop, it is getting a nice new fuel computer installed and mated to his CNS480. We will be visiting the Kennedy Space centre musuem on Saturday after the launch.

I could have gone in the B55, but alas he is leaving on Thursday and I can't get off until 1200 on Friday. And then the other guy who owns the 206 said take mine, but he now had a family emergency somewhere up north so he has gone. And the T210 is now out of hours and the owner is going to sell it rather than spring for a new engine. Oh well, a 3 hour flight in the 172 won't be too bad I will have a couple of Norwegians on board and they are always good value and will make the trip go faster.

I will miss this when I go!

Cheers
CB

Tell ya boss chuckles says he is tnuc with no soul.

Here are some more 'happy' snaps from the last 2 weeks leave working in the hangar...I seem to work about 20 times as hard on 'leave' as I do normally...still having fun though

When I left off last the rear fuse looked like this



Now it looks like this



Then I pulled off the starboard side skin.



Removed, cleaned, painted, reinstalled the longerons and cleaned/painted the ring frames.



A new skin is fabricated



Painted



And riveted back in place by a very skillful Lame with me handling the bucking bar. The result is beautifully fair thanks to young Pat's (pictured) skills with a rivet gun.



Then I de-riveted the port side skin and started cleaning the longerons/frames...then ran out of leave...the upper one looked like the lower one just a short time before.



Weekends riding motor bikes around Mt Mee and Maleny in the cool Autumn air, steaks and beers in pubs with mates, a mate's 50th birthday, and a trip in the FTDKer to Temora to watch the airshow rounded off a great couple of weeks. 4 hours sat on the ground at Young waiting for the fog to lift - and freezing our tits off - was particularly memorable...as was the last hour or so back into YRED on a beautiful moonlit night with just enough cloud to make it pretty
