XXX,

An SR20 with a TAS of 176 knots

Who are you trying to kid!

Did anyone else notice the trend bars?

Seems XXX was actually diving down from a greater height with iPhone in hand, pulled up at 6600 with 5 deg nose up, and look at the altitude trend bar, shooting way higher, and the airspeed shooting down.......

Nice try there

Your later pic with a TAS around 145 is far more believable.....as this lines up with my SR20 owner friends figures.

Your friends probably have the old pre-2007 model, it's slower than the new one.

Of course the speed is coming down, it's climbing at 500fpm!

Can't beat that at 45 lph.

Don't worry Owen, he's just hurting because he's burning 65 litres per hour at the moment.

I guess that's easy for fuel planning though.

1 hour = $100.
2 hours = $200
and so on......

Marree has never seen so many aircraft before when Lake Eyre had water in it, & most likely wouldn't have this time if fuel was still available at YLEC.

Dr and Jaba, I'll take you on, on a fuel cost per kilometre basis!
Heading south from Paradise today, the "new" FTDK was getting along quite nicely, thank you!

A090, 2300 rpm/21.5" MP (about 65% power), 50 L/hr, IAS 140 kts, TAS 164 kts.

The birds have it all wrong with this flying south business!

GS = 145 kts most of the way, and Toowoomba was blowing 28 kts gusting to 33 kts - and freezing frigging cold!

Is the old Maree Hotel still there?
Had a great night there once, zooming around the ground floor on a wheeled stretcher shagging a lovely nursey.

XXX, dependant on what engine it was fitted with. the 235 was worse than the 160. I found the Cawlair was worse. the Agwagon and thrush were a dodle after that.

Spent way too many nights at the Marree pub - most of which I struggled to remember the following day.

I think you'll find the 206s were too busy in the air to attract any flies. Maybe you could come out from Melbourne for the weekend in the cirrus and 'do it tough' out here again? Some of your boys have been livin the dream and working hard out here for months and you just come for visits!
BTW you should try the camp fire every night for a decent feed and a bit of atmosphere!
