Weather out west has been pretty crap for the last few days!

Here is the YBCV Rwy 12 GPS RNAV Approach from TOD at 2900' - as seen through ForkCam.

Became visual at 700' AGL.

PS: I was thinking of ya Wally, ploughing along in your PC12!

Not lube - looks like a new camera mounted outside the cabin!

The weather is a bit different to last week. I flew Kynuna - LRE - CV - SGE - ARM last Saturday and hardly saw any clouds.

That was Mrs Forkie speaking Chinese in her Scottish/Aussie accent!!!!!!!!

She musta been scared ****less or waking from a deep sleep [more likely]...she finds the FTDK a bore , no matter how exciting he tries to make it for her....zzzzzzzzzzz.

Sprung.

It is a 5% glideslope = 3 degrees.

That's what you get with too much technology in an aircraft.

1) Where is this?

2) What is the visibility?



Forkie,

At the moment, the ForkMount (TM) Mk4 (Patent Pending) is only available for sophisticated aircraft of the Bonanza variety!

ehhehehehhehehehehheh

I was wondering....but too chicken to say anything!

Forkie....thats too easy.....but I have inside info

That is a great ForkCam! Wally will not be happy!

Looks like a video of ...errrr well you know the saying as dark as the inside of a cow, now what would you know about that?

What is causing the flash off the engine cowls on the way in?

And the Vis...well thats obvious now we have been taught about instrument approaches...its good coz you can see some , but it was way better in TL because you could count thousands more there. So lucky you made it in!

Don't know why I haven't put this up yet - also don't know why the sound doesn't transfer when I upload to youtube.

Winter sun but bloody cold.

This was to have been a follow up to FTDK's, but I see Chuckles has put a daylight one up while getting it..

Bundy Full Moon in June (without the eclipse it would have been as bright as day !)


p.s. Took some visiting friends up for a run over Vila in a 182 once. When we landed everyone was talking about the big earthquake. Never felt a thing.

Where are we and what aircraft are we in ?

Heading 208 at 6000'

Where are we?

What type are we?



The weather at home is a lot better than what Forkie has at the moment ! The weather that FTDK had running the RNAV into Charleville is what we usually have at this time of year.


Cheers

JERR


OK just to make it easier



Have a great day, the weather is going to be bad here today. This time last year we were at Townsville, then to Richmond, Longreach. CAVOK, 25 C, perfect!

Cheers

JERR
