Great acting. I missed the cameo by Lesley Nielsen though.

News?

An entertaining clip, there are a couple like it on the internet. If it were real we would have seen it in the news.

Saw a pic like that of a UH1H once. Croc had stopped breathing sometime before the pic was taken, and was attached by the loadie. The local cops had asked for help with its removal.

Based on the body language of the rear seat passenger it looks legit!

Have a look at the rotor dish, he is sticking a lot of power in there to compensate the weight of the crock !!

Thought maybe some of the professionals would have put up something on yesterday's 20 ship Super Hornet formation over Brissie. Anyhow here are a couple I got - conditions not too photography friendly, well that's my excuse anyway.

By the way, nice appetiser by the RV-8, sounded like a Subie roaring away there as it scooted over the CBD.

Great work Spinex.

What a sight to see

I'd loved to have witnessed it. Hope many of you got to see it.

Which CBD? If you mean the BAE Hawk....well maybe but if you meant CBD of Caloundra or Woorim on Bribie....I may just know what you mean. Might even have some video of that too that was emailed to me from the aforementioned RV8 with Subbie up front.

They're a lovely old aeroplane - completely different (superior) build quality to modern Cessnas - built like Bonanzas. That'll make 7 in Oz I think..maybe 8.

A few more happy snaps from the weekend











And a token Beechcraft to keep Forkie, Chuckles and Clinton smiling, this is a really nice F33A.....stunning refit about 7 years ago.


So can anyone guess where? Should not be too hard.

Thought you may have an inkling of the aircraft concerned - having seen photographs of yours consorting with said Subie powered mistress. Missed the Hawk(s) actually - were they still tagging along when the formation went over Brisbane?

JR you 'white cane current' for landings?

Do NOT try to peer down the side of the cowl on landing - you'll end up pointed way left because you will tend to line up the curved cowl with what little else you can see. 75-80 kts down final...75kts over the fence...trickle off the power as you round out and flare looking straight ahead into nothing and keep stuff lined up in your peripheral vision. Keep the nose coming up for a tail low wheeler. As the tail wheel settles on slide your feet up onto the brakes 'cause you is about to lose rudder effectiveness. The tail wheel is stearable but you WILL need a little brake to stay straight.

Get the round out and flare right and she will reward you with lovely greasers...but the C195 is about the blindest tail dragger you will ever fly. Two people who have owned/flown Harvards and who also own/fly C195s have told me the 195 is a significantly more challenging aeroplane to land.

Get current in a C185 concentrating on tail low/wheeler landings and the C195 won't present any insurmountable problems landing wise. They can be 3 pointed but the rear bulkhead is a weak point and did I mention they are BLIND forward on the ground?
