That wouldn't be the first time a prop strike aircraft has had the props swapped at a remote location after a prop replacement and subsequently flown out... All good fun until someone gets hurt!

This particular one was another one of the Airtex mishaps at Marree for 2010.

Not bad shortfield - but maybe needs a couple more GPS's and an ipad. (Found this on Controller.com - really nice 210 with FIKI and and IO550 - not sure when he looks out of the window - probably doesn't need to!)

..... buy another alternator just to power the bloody things. And if it all turns to sh!t- a ram air turbine and a few extra batteries just to keep them running...


F*k me... can't that guy navigate?

Ponder on how many cow's bums he's gonna have to shove his arm up to afford the G600 and Mx20.

He already has the other GPSs and after I showed him my Ipad with Ozrunways he's decided he needs that too.

I find that pic interesting, tens of thousands of dollars of certified gear and there's still a $1200 296/396 on the dash.

collapse in a quivering heap as he realises that, finally, someone has more GPS units in an aircraft than he does!

Queensland Floods

The following are some photos taken yesterday of the floods around central Queensland. Sorry about the quality - iphones don't produce great photos out of the cockpit window (plus it was pretty cloudy!).

Flood waters to the south of Rocky:



A little hard to see, but water was only metres from the threshold of rwy 15. Listening to the mayor on ABC Radio today he reckons the airport could be closed on the weekend:



The Fitzroy river, which has risen a couple of more metres since this photo was taken:




Overhead Emerald a couple of hours before the bridge was closed. This has therefore shut the highway from the south. I believe a couple of streets close to the river are now under water:




Good luck to all of those affected and the pilots providing relief work.

Ah. so I am not the only one who can only see red crosses.

The captions show what should be some interesting pics.

...... say, "Ha, fecking ha! You guys are hilarious!"

Just looking at that pic freaks me out. Talk about information overload! Worse than Jaba's Retard Vehicle - which I can't even start!

I count a possible 6 x GPSs in that pic. The ForkAir SOPs state a minimum of 5 on board - soon to be six as I move to the paperless aeroplane!
