You've got balls posting that on here!

There might be a knock on the door by the regulator shortly!

At least cut the registration marks out!!

TGG - all in the name of defence! As contracted...could just as easily been A4's or F18s, or Air to Surface missiles, or an ag operator, or powerline/survey operator...how often does "the regulator" knock on the RAAF/RAAN door? Some people just have the BEST jobs!

Photo's - boats or aircraft?

Don't want to be a party pooper, but if I wanted to look at shots of boats, I'd join the Navy

Any chance we could get back to photos of things that really get airborne

(ducking for cover - incoming)

Seriously? A couple of Lears cruising low over the ocean, worse things have been posted here before. I'm certain that if it wasn't approved it wouldn't have been posted!

Re the Lears. Anyone have a contact for Brian (Bomber) Brown? Ex RAAF Mirage and the Lears. Please PM. (he would have been on oxygen at the height those Lears are shown )

'Diana'
1929 DH60 Moth
Gypsy 1 motor
Co-founders of the Aero Club as we know it
Sam Hecker and Stedd Lowe 1932



Early Type Glider
Built by Les Hansen and Norwood Warry
Test flown by Stedd Lowe on the Old Race Course 1932



The Aero Club is still going strong.
The clubhouse, an old wartime building (The Battery Hut) is used by an Ultralight (RAA) school now.
Club still has a 172 used by Private and Commercially licenced members, if they don't have their own.
And the clubhouse still gets 'Lit up' by 'Bright Sparks' at functions.


P.S. Sam still had 2 aircraft when I was learning in the late 60's., a Piper Tripacer that he flew now and then, and a Miles Messenger that had been grounded by D.C.A. because of suspicion about the glue used in the ply. His son told me this morning, that it was found later when the aircraft was sold and shipped to N.Z. that the glue and ply were O.K. after all, as his was a post-war model with the Blackburn Cirrus Major 3 engine (similar to the early Chipmunk engine, he said) of which only 38 were made.
If someone knows the history of this aircraft, (don't have the rego from then- but could get it), if it is flying, and if so - could they post a photo - as I haven't seen it for a long time..
Photos of any Messengers welcome in flying colours, they are a classic old ship.

That Albatros was having an entertaining time trying to fit in to the circuit with the bugsmashers...

What is probably fairly easy, but where could be a bit more of a challenge.

Made me do a double take too. I wonder whether it's airworthy? As far as I'm aware there's only one still flying & that's in the UK. One was lost a few years back in an accident.

Mossie is RS712, not currently airworthy.

RS712

Is that Ray's Albatross? The specs suggest the Mig 15 still out performs it. The new 4 a/c circut limit might actually work in their favour
