11 Honolulu?
13 San Fransico?

Rock festival is at Phillip Island. GO Airlines CanadaAir Regional Jet is in Honolulu, yep good guess. Nice little aircraft 50'ish seats. Long takeoff run, but climbs steep out like a fireman.



Nice guess.

Warbirds are Nellis Airforce Base in Nevada, pictures enclosed, complete with Snipers on the roof ready to pop a cap in the a*rse of any unsuspecting airshow visitor who gets too close to the Stealth figther. To be honest, I think it was a little over the top!

Lucky these guys didn't see Mr. XXX here with his Bazooka!




Spot the sniper!



He's so ugly I just wanna aim at him!


Watch out for this guy! He flies a Jabiru.







We have these in Museum's in Australia and they are STILL flying them!


Nice...


Blimp over Orlando.




REAL float plane flying in the Florida keys!



And real Australian coast.

Knew it was either Nellis or Edwards, took a punt on Edwards after seeing the San Fran pic.
Ah well, as for your pic of Loch Ard Gorge, seen that one......oh.....174 odd times from the air. Well didn't really see it, too busy dodging bloody R44s!

Such a Nit Picky lot on here and nobody has picked the problem in XXX's photo yet, and my last clue has not helped.

Have not seen that happen in my Jab! But I bet a few other instrumenst in old Cessna's and Pipers have done some odd things at times.

Here is my dash, nice redundancy with the old and new!



Cheers

I don't see a problem, just hope you're carrying oxygen to be cruising at FL490. Would have taken a while for the poor little Jabbie to get ya there!!


Must be the J160-900TT!!!

I wonder what other points he has to reveal!

Yep, the flashy on-fire aircraft is a new Sting owned by Michael Coates the importer. It's a nice machine and has most of the gadgets you need for a pleasant day's flight.

Paintjob took nearly 2 weeks solid.

They must have solved the engine problem with the Vampire then?

I remember one of my instructors being involved with the test flying of them in the very early 80s, I think...many, many engine failures were had usually just airborne...I can't for the life of me remember what it was or the fix.

Re the flames paint job...wouldn't have thought it was the best advert for Rotax

Re the other leathal looking thing...WTF is it??

That looks suspicously like the back of Peter Waterhouse's hangar at Hoxton park in which the Vampire sits.
