What's the depth charge on the side of the SRN-6 for Frigatebird? "Special" fishing adventures?

Ultralights - Did you want someone to guess where?

It's YWOL - Illawarra Regional Airport, Albion Park, near Wollongong NSW, home of Connie VH-EAG and HARS.

Tids
That made me pull out the Type Operating Manual (You have no idea what else I found - Flight without Formulae and Mechanics of Flight by Kermode, Flight Briefing for Pilots volumes 1 & 2 by Birch and Bramson, Flight Safety Metro Endorsement material, even my progress sheets for the IF Rating with Westco signed by John Appleton, etc. etc)

NOT a Depth Charge device.. the Gnome would have been enough to scare the fish to death. Factory mod or home grown tank for fuel or ballast. The platforms are extra too.

LOTS.. of pages..!!

I used to be quite taken with the ones that operated from the Brisbane Airport Hovercraft Terminal to the Gold Coast in Chris Skases (spelling?) time.
They were big diesel ones, and I thought that was the future then.

I find myself wondering why an ex PX Dak has a PNGDF serial number painted on it and is mounted on poles in someones back yard blocking the view of Ela Beach or, maybe, the harbour

I am assuming its a bitsa made up of the ex PX Dak that was abandoned at Jackson's and an abandoned PNGDF Dak - or maybe the one they crashed at Nadzab.

My brain hurts

The Dak is at the Airways Hotel in Port Moresby.

It's their business centre. Lined with wood and half a dozen computers grace its interior. The cockpit is closed off with a perspex "door" but it has been gutted.
