T-28?
Engine readings seem to match an R-1820.

Yep, the rudder pedals are a giveaway with North American stamped on them. It's a real buzz to pole this for 2 hours from the back seat.

The Caproni is at Tocumwal. belongs to Chris Corrigan and somebody else.

Pic #3 earlier on seems to be an early C172. (before the 172A), I flew one VH MUG way back when it was $10 per tacho hour wet private hire.

There was however a 175 (had a small bump on the cowl for 0-300 gearbox) fitted with an O-360 at Hay somewhere. From memory Pip Borman had something to do with it.

Hey Frank,

How do you get your pictures uploaded at that size. The photo site that I am storing the photos on saves them as thumbnails and when I copy the URL to upload to this post they still display at the same smaller size.

A little help if you can!

Cheers Exaviator

Exaviator;


Read http://www.pprune.org/dg-p-general-a...ng-pprune.html

I use Photobucket.

The short answer is I don't really know what I'm doing.

I did note however I resized mine to medium- from memory to fit with the PPRune specs of 640 x 480 pixels, but when I right clicked on the image they came out larger. Don't know how this happened but they must be on the PPRune limit.

It seems quite a few people feel the need to not read their suppliment or NOTAMs and fly into the Matamata CTR. Some big mean microlight roars out of the sun scaring all the budding aviators. Or something.

I'd say you'd be required to have extremely good posture before you'd be allowed to fly that 175.

...and Yes I am ATCing there (my last as CC)...and Yes, yet again we have "pilots" surprised to be confronted with a (temporary) CTR, control tower, and circuit chocka block full of ab initio students despite the NOTAM, AIP Sup, and the fact that the Walsh has been at Matamata for the bulk of the last 40+ years in the first couple of weeks of January

Back seat of a Harvard (Ardmore?)

Frank the back seat of a T28 is certainly fun - except doing circuits at YRED when you can only see D Bay out one side and suburbia out the other

Front seat is much more betterer

Gotta love an aeroplane that indicates 200kts at such a low power setting - 30in/2000rpm - and is lighter/more responsive on the controls than a Chipmunk

CC

Back seat is correct, only one in NZ with that instrument setup though, further south as well
You're right about the T28, flown one in the hunter valley a few years back, unreal!

Don't you just love those cageable wartime A.H.'s!? That one has some pretty orange markings! (when mine came out because it needed an overhaul and it was cheaper and more modern looking to put a pictorial one in, it left a hole in the panel and coaming I still haven't properly filled.)
One thing I notice about ultralights, they all seem to have a Vertical Speed dial. Wonder how much it gets looked at. Me, I would prefer to have a small A.H. either pump, venturi or electric, together with the T.& B. or Turn Co-ordinator of the other persuasion for backup, if I had limited panel space anyday.

It tends to spend most of its life caged these days as most of the flying isn't S&L
Gotta love the Russian AH's ,no need to cage those babies

The original panel in this aircraft was updated for a last generation aviator to feel at home and enjoy his flying whilst in retirement - spot the aircraft type.
