Shots of the approach to Tapini in what was then TPNG - 1970.



The strip itself.



and the "Go round obstacle" at the end of the strip.



After 40 years they've probably flattened out the strip, built up the approach and moved the mountain at the end.

.........and with the aid of modern zoom lenses you can make out the Birthday Boy who flogged the Dr's FTDK



............ and for the Guess the strip Question....where is this?



And when ever you see this line up of a/c, there will be a wealthy publican in close range........40 deg at 5pm!




And this bloke was grateful his Tecnam is not this complicated

A view of the Retard Vehicle that, unfortunately, many aircraft will need to get used to.




Been invited back to fly this - cannot wait!!!

Nice Vid Jaba, thanks for sharing. Reminds me of when I was a kid, riding my bike down to the airport at Rotto (we lived there) so I could watch the aircraft from the side of the strip.

The 185 sounds great.

who flogged the Dr's FTDK
I prefer to characterise it as 'Who transported the future prospects for the Dr's family name, the very fruit of his loins, to the chosen venue with the maturity and gravity such an august task demands'
