I'm surprised by Jabas comments on the 12. The least they could have done is used flush rivets; ugly ducking!

Sorry J3...did not see....or remember...I saw so much!

Now this is another ForkTailed machine, we only realised why so many FTDK's are here........they built about 10,000 of them and so far only 6000 or so Piper Tailed ones. Ratio unlike Oz.

So check this beauty out. The astute ones among you will know what is different about it.


An earlier vintage


fun on floats.........


A nice old Twin Bo


Salmon seems to be a popular colour over here.


Another victim...


Chuck would be like a dog with two tails here......more of theselovely critters!




And some class too, just for Arnold E's benefit !




Speedy..........


And I guess we should finnish off with another class act.........


More later.......... Beer time and dinner!

Enjoy!

You didn't waste any time getting online jaba. We are still flying to Tucson.

We are somewhere over Wichita. You know you are bored on a flight when you consider purchasing a mobile phone watch from the Skymall catalogue.

You might wanna invest in a telephoto lens Jaba! I had to use a magnifying glass to identify some of those aircraft.

This is not my photo, but found it on another bulletin board...

I believe that's called "beating a hasty retreat"

I'm assuming that's the Premier 1 shown earlier after crashing at Oshkosk? Looks to be the same paint scheme, not to mention also looks like a Premier 1!

The last thing I'd be giving a **** about would be my camera bag! But those plane geeks are a funny bunch.

Been busy doing other fun stuff so now I have some time spare...here are some more!







I had never seen one of these before, and there were at least two at the show. I wonder how many of you know what it is?


Now Look what we have here!




This is an awesome beast!
