Nope, the white overalls did the trick back then.
Of course these days you can't go anywhere near a Dash 8 wearing white.

Walking near a Rolls Royce dart without hearing protection would be an act of bravery today.

Spent an awesome weekend in Wellington and as usual visited the 'must do' Te Papa. The photographer Brian Brake currently has an exhibition there, I loved this particular photo of his and so bought a large print.

I couldn't get the image to appear so here's a link!

Camel rider of the Aden Protectorate Levies beside a jet plan... on Twitpic

Just thought the coming together of these two, centuries apart, fighting machine was brilliant! It's a Hawker Hunter I think, although I'm not certain.

Wouldn't be Morno either, 'cos as far as I know he only flies them thar single engined things.

Reckon those HF aerials would be attached to a vehicle that has a couple of purty flashin' lights on its roof too.

You are slipping! You normally hit the nail on the head but not this time.

No it was not Morno this time. However, Morno has been poling around them twin kero burners of late, and as luck would have it we enjoyed a top steak and a couple of cold beers at Bretts Wharf on the Brisbane River last night. Then Jaba got a very wet ar$e riding his bike home in massive storms....but thats another story.

And no pretty lights on that ute I am afraid. You will have to try harder

Gooday Mav....how is married life treating you

Cheating....well seems I need a new callsign. Flew 4 flights yesterday with 2 departures from YSGE, after the first one I get sprung by the B200 pilot who has an ETA 30min after me to the unguessed airfield asking will I be there long. Had a phone call from 185skywagon about the same time.

So not St George.......but getting warmer.....like 38degC on the ground!

DF, you're a bit behind the times, . Been flying them twin burners for a while now.

Jabba, I noticed the storms weren't anywhere near as bad today and you weren't up flying, .
