Hey Bloggs.........

While sweating the concept of multiple boggies, did you think they are just the ones with transponders and turned on.....and what about the health of the encoders?

But but but, transponders are always on and always serviceable..aren't they?!

CHOGM's worst nightmare! I wonder how many Hornets would be needed to shoot down that lot before they got to the Bell Tower??!

The STAR says "Caution: Adjacent Jandakot CTR. Do not widen out on base leg" for good reason.

None. Sadly, when Ronnie was last called upon to perform they couldn't hack it, left to Navy to fix, but sadly they no longer have any toys. (Auster over Sydney)

I would have thought WDL could have named the strip at post 8381 - he must be loosing his memory - too many SP greens when he was a young fella !

NZ C180/185 pilots should know where this is, if the photos in the cafe where anything to go by.

Taken back in 1988 - I think. I guess this C310R VH-BPI was inherited by Australian Airlines from Bushies probably making it the "smallest" aircraft in the Australian fleet.
I flew another one, VH-TDS but I lost track of it after 1979.
Probably not the best looking of the C310's with the long nose but still great to fly....

Indeed you are quite correct, Givelda. Air Queensland (Bushies) had the flying surgeon contract,so had two C310R a/c,this one VH-BPI was based at Longreach & the other one VH-FSR (Flying Surgeon Roma) was based at Roma. After TAA (Australian Airlines) bought Air Queensland they inherited the contract so,the a/c were painted in Aust Airlines colours.

Aviation art: Ipec Argosy



Great piccys thanks Dogimed. I painted this painting because I quite like the Argosy. I remember it well, as it had a very distinctive sound as it slowly climbed out of Brisbane each night on its freight run south. They were used also in NZ on inter island freight operations. Ugly?Yes....but aeroplanes back then had characteristic shapes, unlike now where they all look basically the same.

ABX

The real truth is you can afford one, he does this as a fun hobby, and charges at least 50% or less of what he should.

If you want something pony up now before he really believes he is under charging.

In aviation terms its Melbourne to Cairns for $49
