Frigatebird, your passengers in the Metro seem a lot happier than the mob in the Bandeirante!

It never got worse than SCT or FEW on Sunday. Most of the day was just blue sky - NZHN looked like it was BKN/OVC but it almost always breaks up as it comes over the hills.

You never know who's watching........

Geez Cracker, you really challenge my memory banks!

I took a Baron into Milungera once only in 1990. I only remember that it was a nice big strip. That day I shared it with a Conquest.

Although I don't remember Milungera, I do remember the trip. Arriving in the dark back at Charlie's Trousers to drop off a pax, I couldn't get the PAL lights to turn on. Fortunately a friendly Qantas flight passing overhead did the job for me. Townsville-Charlie's Trousers-Milungra-Charlie's Trousers-Townsville was right on the limit for a B55. I recall having exactly 45 min left in the tanks when I filled it up.

I have never even flown over Milungera before or since. It just seems to be off my usual tracks.

Halo is what you say to the cops when you have had too many Corona's.

I've never heard of having a lime in a Halo....

From all that useless ATPL met study, from memory a Corona is astronomic, a Halo meteorological.

Am I right? Hm? Ha? Hm? Am I? Am i?

HALO

3. (Earth Sciences / Physical Geography) a circle of light around the sun or moon, caused by the refraction of light by particles of ice
4. (Astronomy) Astronomy a spherical cloud of stars surrounding the Galaxy and other spiral galaxies

CORONA

a. A faintly colored luminous ring appearing to surround a celestial body visible through a haze or thin cloud, especially such a ring around the moon or sun, caused by diffraction of light from suspended matter in the intervening medium. Also called aureole.


So you're right and wrong I guess...

So what was that in the photo.. that we all see from time to time..neither? Just a full circle rainbow.. white light broken down with the red spectrum visible on the outside of the curve, and the violet on the inside towards the shadow?
