I had no idea what a rangemaster was. Though I figured it must have been built by North American Aviation as it looks like a midget P51.

Indeed that is where the name Navion is drawn from.

There have been at least 2 in Australia, and I think one is still in existence in Victoria.

The name Rangemaster is for the version with tip tanks and a wet wing, giving it something like 15 hours endurance.

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?
It's a Navion Nav 4, manufactured by Ryan.

Looks a bit like Forbes-ish but I'm guessing it might be Nth Island NZ?

Is it the Ardmore training area? Too hard to tell from the size of the picture but there's been plenty of fog and low cloud around there the last few weeks.

Indeed it is a Navion, and here is the one and only Navion Rangemaster in Australia:

Ahhh - that aircraft holds very special memories for me. And she still looks as good as she did when I first made her acquaintance over 20 years ago!

Yep Ardmore training area is right. Mercer airfield is roughly in the middle of the picture. Sorry about the actual size of the picture. It wasnt the same size when I was looking at it yesterday. Turned out to be a short flight!!

The Premier jet prang

Taken from the Leader Telegram news:
Leader Telegram: News - NASCAR's Roush injured in plane crash at Oshkosh air show

MILWAUKEE (AP) - NASCAR team owner Jack Roush was in serious but stable condition after walking away from a plane crash in Wisconsin on Tuesday night.

"There are injuries. Possible surgery," Roush Fenway Racing president Geoff Smith said in a text message to The Associated Press. "But he walked out of the plane."

Smith confirmed that the plane belonged to Roush, and he was flying it. Smith said Roush's injuries include facial lacerations.

Roush, an aviation buff, was attending the Experimental Aircraft Association's annual AirVenture in Oshkosh this week.

In a statement on the EAA Web site, officials said a Beechcraft Premier business jet registered to Roush Fenway Racing, LLC was involved in a landing accident at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh.

The accident occurred at approximately 6:15 p.m. CDT, the statement said.

According to the EAA, the National Transportation Safety Board and Winnebago County Sheriff's Department confirmed that two occupants on board were Roush and Brenda Strickland of Plymouth, Mich. Strickland is a friend of Roush's.

"Each exited the aircraft following the accident," the statement said. "Both were transported to local hospitals, with Roush in serious but stable condition and Strickland with non-life threatening injuries. The NTSB is leading the investigation into the accident."

According to a statement from the team, Roush was landing his plane when the accident occurred.

"Dr. Kevin Wasco, the attending physician, says that Roush is in serious but stable condition," the team's statement said. "His injuries are not life threatening."

It is the second close call for Roush, who crashed a plane into a pond in Alabama in 2002 and nearly drowned before being rescued by an ex-Marine who lived nearby. Despite sustaining serious injuries, Roush continued flying.

Roush owns several aircraft, including a World War II-vintage P-51 Mustang.

After having success in dragsters and sports car racing, Roush - a former Ford engineer and college physics teacher - founded his NASCAR team in 1988. Known for his trademark Panama-style hat, academic speaking style and love for tinkering with anything mechanical, he won championships in NASCAR's top series with Matt Kenseth in 2003 and Kurt Busch in 2004.

Since 2007, Roush has partnered with the Fenway Sports Group, the sports marketing arm of the Boston Red Sox's parent company.

The team currently fields cars in the Cup series for Kenseth, Carl Edwards, Greg Biffle and David Ragan.

Flying YMPC to YMEN

We were on our way to Essendon. It was a lovely sunny Sunday afternoon, what a great day to go flying.

The YAK52 was doing its run ups for an aerobatic sortie


I live near this beach




Departing YMEN, downwind from RWY 35 for Station Pier
