CC, "Was a time when we used to roll 2 full 200 litre drums of avgas/diesel/JetA into the back of 185s - 4 in the back of Islanders - 8 or 9 in the back of Twotters."
Likewise.

Agree it could be Caboolture Q, not a recent photo I suspect.

Yeah Kabullture, I would recognise that dump anywhere!

PS: And the refuse tip on the left hand side is pretty characteristic too!

Is most definitely recent Bentleg (yesterday). Best fun I've had in an aeroplane in a while. The Retard Vehicle ****s all over most other lighty's I've flown, .

As Jaba said earlier on skype "Old pic? That T shirt hasn't even hit the washing machine yet"

Not a bad machine is she Morno - could you understand how to start the fcking thing?

Whenever Jaba offers me the LHS I just stay "Thanks...start it for me will ya"

Hi Moreton Bay guys,

Have you flown out near Moreton Island lately?

Has the brown water reached the island yet?

Thinking of putting the nautical money burner in action for a run out to the Cape.

Chuck, I could understand how to start it.......... but I feckin couldn't! I eventually did, but only after we'd let the equivalent of the BP oil spill out on the ground in Avgas and let the thing sit for what seemed like an eternity.

There are more pics, I've just gotta try and find some that aren't incriminating, .

I recall an overbridge over the highway and junction thingy close to the threshold, but maybe its outside the cam view or I'm thinking of somewhere else.

PS - I accept the guidance of those more familiar with it and that the photo is current.

I went to an airshow seems like a long time ago there. The usual stuff was on and as something went by there were some explosions over the tip side of the airfield. I said to my daughter that must have been terrorists trying to blow up the tip and missed. The bloke next to me with five cameras, a scanner and a copy of Australian rego's overheard me and said "It's part of the pyrotechnic display with the airshow". I thanked him for his knowledge.

Even I recognise Cabulture (although I probably can't spell it), except when I was there it was blowing 40 parentless children and the air was decidedly hazy due to the bush fires!!

He used the Conti fuel system technique.....

I was wondering how that would go............

Yeah all good fun!

And Morno had no trouble with the power up and start sequence at all.....he now has the Retard Endo unlike you slack and lazy Cony drivers

I was gonna say that that looked like one of Jabba's token striped shirts but the comment about the photo being old threw me off a bit.

The FUEL system is not the hard part, it's the Dreamliner-like electrics in that thing that you need an endorsement for and that's just the multi-battery set-up let alone Barbara the auto-pilot chick.
