Loading the Retard Vehicle at YSGE last night, getting dark....hop in warm the engine and programme the flight plan in and the sunset went from nice to awesome........so shut down open door and snapped this one for all the good folk on pprune!

As good as it gets with an iPhone though.

BEAUTIFUL,Jabba. Now who would ever want to be a 9 to 5 office worker? Aeroplane drivers see the most spectacular skies.

I have a stupid question: How do you insert an image? Does it have to be online or can you upload from the Hard Drive?

Hey Hatman,

Go back to the forums index page & look at the 3rd line down 'image posting on Pprune'. It's a step by step recipe & although it looks hard when first viewed,it's not that bad,just a bit long. I find the best feature is the 'preview post' button prior to submitting (avoids making a dill of myself)

Is this your baby Wal? How old and how many hours, she looks somewhat beaten up or "well used" perhaps?

It's just had a few friendly knocks on the side from when the props have parted with some ice by the looks.

'XXX'.................ahhh the good 'ole days:-) That looks like WGT as I used to park almost off the hard surface myself, bad eyesight I guess:-) Those 4 airframes did a lot of work. I think the contract stated that the airframes could be max 4 yrs old at time of contract start & max of 2 to 3 thousand hrs, something like that, they weren't new anyway. When I jumped ship last year the frames had over 12000 hrs on them & where really looking shabby. Built like tanks the old Beech where & did a Stirling job but best of all they always had a spare donk.............on each airframe.

Nice one there Jaba. Continuing the theme....







Taken at Shark Bay (Denham) a couple of weeks ago. Someone has to do it....

....and this just isn't good enough. You don't seem to be able to go anywhere these days without someone coming along and getting in one's way.



Not on the same trip, but last time I slipped into Albury with the 210, someone had the gall to park their Retard Vehicle in the way blocking the view. It simply won't do!

What bad airmanship to think that after 47 years of flying and 38 with QANTAS such photographic obstructions on the apron would never happen. I will ensure it does not happen again!

Of course in this instance it did improve the quality of the shot!

The QF guys are told where to park though, usually

Nope! Too scared to!

"Alerted See and Avoid" is one thing; trying to avoid a whole bl@@dy squadron of the buggers is beyond the pale!!
