Thumbs up

PS2A, the latter photos were of Afghanisatan looking up towards Kabul (northbound).

The shot of the airfield is some tin pot town on the border between Pakistan and Afghanisatan. The picture didn't do it justice because it was a lot steeper than it looks and finished at the mountain. Definitely a one way strip!

TCU,

No worries, just a guess! It all looks much the same N of PH anyway, flat brown dry... Driven to Broome and back twice, never again!

Cheers,

AEIO-540 Good effort!
And missing from the line up is another S1 and a Robin, and (that we hope to see next year) are Rob's Sukhoi Su29 and Doug's new MX2, and I believe there's a couple of Yaks (52s and a 55) floating around down south.
That'll make a pretty cool picture!!
EDIT - All the practice (unofficial and official) is done now...competition proper today...must get that avalanche in the Intermediate sequence nailed!!!
And from the other end of the line....

RH FF F&*^ed since RH ITT is similar to LH?

or

LH FF is F%^&ed since RH ITT is a similar to LH ITT?

or can go through the same thing and assume that one or the other ITT is F&*^ed?

Yep, it's a fecked LH FF gauge. Had to pop the CB to reset it every hour or so. Ops, that ALT HOLD was actually pretty good for this machine - it's inside 1000 ' of the selection

Heres another instrument from the same A/C on the same trip.





Anyone except Ops wanna shot at the A/C type....?
