The one in the foreground is an 8, one in the background is a 10.

DF,

My mistake, you are correct. RV8 and RV10...... All these RVs confuse me.

Geeez you folks are slipping.........last one was Haasts Bluff (if I spelled it correctly)

OK how about this one, and yes a -8 not a -4


Zac.....Its a nice place in BRM alright. Were you in the tower today? If so that place was in overload. They need a radar or wamlat to help it ATC situational awareness. It one busy place.

Think I now have a true appreciation for why they call 'em BugSmashers™

Before:


7.4 hours later:



I spent over an hour cleaning it yesterday afternoon... and now I think there are more bugs on it than before!!

WD40 is great for removing bugs. and a coat of corrosionX before you fly is a great preventative as well. bugs slide right off.

Will there be enough room on the cowl for all those kill markings?

Happily enough, the aircraft has been coated with some teflon thing that helps make cleaning easier... just add water and the bugs tend to slide off relatively easy, as long as you don't leave them baking in the sun for a few weeks

The biggest problem is one of visibility! Trying to spot that "traffic, 2 miles, at your 12 o'clock, opposite direction, same height" is a little bit problematic when it's a small spot on the windscreen... in amongst about 4,000 other small (and not so small) spots!

The real frustrating part, is that half of them end up on the windscreen during taxi and take-off!

Jaba, you got me with the Haasts Bluff one. Last time I was there in 2006 the parking area was much less overgrown. Spent hours there waiting for clients.

With your later photo, perhaps Barclay Roadhouse?

Waiting for clients?

Not the sort I expect? Escorted by folk in blue clothes?

As for the next strip.....nowhere near there....keep guessing, a clue it's in WA.

Nah'.................nothin like that. Couple of mining types I took there to talk to the locals.

Reminds me that anyone who thinks the locals are easy targets should think again. They met these two about half way into the community and sat down on the side of the road to talk leases, in the heat, flies and dust. When the clients got back they were parched and very glad to get out of there.

As to the next strip it looks vaguely familiar but I can't place it.
