The view from my travelling "office" yesterday. Not long after sunrise out of Bankers with a bit of flog clearing almost necessating an ILS into Canberra, but instead a tidy VFR arrival on 30, number 2 to the jungle jet. Up to 70 knots on the tail for the remainder of the trip down south. There were more sigmets on the forecast than you cared to imagine. 'twas a nasty day even for the big boys up top with turbulence right up to the low 40's at least.

Ultralights you are not very observant tonight!

It is indeed a Liberty. Have a close look at the ASI. They have a carbon fuselage and metal wings.

The only close up look of a Liberty i have ever had is the wrecks at YSBK, none had wings fitted, I assumed the wings wold have been of similar construction to the fuse. Thanks for setting me straight..

and 11o kts, in a shallow descent at cruise power, cant be anything Vans have built.

Speaking of Slow Metal.



think i can handle a 140 Mtr strip now..

CBR Appr was asking me to slow down. I was even told to "lose 10 knots" on late final which I personally felt was a little rude.

Ya plonked her on a bit hard there....Now you need to get that back to 50m ......ohh yeah sand helps!

Then its the 50/50/50 circuits. That is not above 50 knots, not above 50 feet and not more than 50 seconds!.........Ohh and 50 m of roll....both! (needs sand for the last bit!)

Nice video you are getting too!

Bills retirement party Saturday....will save that video link up till then!

So much for maintaining runway heading after take-off!

From memory that pic was pretty much taken on runway heading on 30. Suspect your climb rate was a bit average if you came close!

XXX - 'twas a nasty day even for the big boys up top with turbulence right up to the low 40's at least.

Went over the top of YSCB at FL260 on the way to Mt.Hotham yesterday morning at about 1030 - twas smooth as a babies behind. Likewise at FL270 on the way home. I suspect it may have been rough upstairs from there though, as a 744 went past us at FL280. It was a most impressive sight.

Black Mountain Tower. When I had my very first lesson in a C152 in 1983 the standard circuit was a lap around the tower at the height of masts. It was close enough that my iinstructor said you could see the visitors in the lookout. I didn't see anything because I was sh*tting myself.

I am beginning to worry about you Mr Fanelli - strange would be two brown eyes.
