Has anybody counted the "strict liability" offences captured in this photo?

Is "strict liability" retrospective?

The young bloke could have been a mate of mine, namebilong Pat. RIP mate anyway.

They build them tough in western QLD, the poor little kid probably rode his bike 30 miles without a safety helmet, safety vest, no mobile phone, no sunscreen, no designer clothes, no water bottle or trendy backpack just to see the flying machine. He would go home and tell his mum, dad and little brother about his amazing adventure, while mum prepared the evening roast meal.

Today before the child was driven 30 miles in mum's salary packaged SUV, to see the flying machine in the paddock, junior would have downloaded the GPS co-ordinates, texted at least 4 friends, tweeted on facebook, dropped little brother off at child care so that he and mother could quality time together in between mum talking on her iPhone to the office on her RDO about staff training issues, the car trip was initially delayed due to mum trying to find a toll free road, council road works taking place due to floods caused by global warming are now closed for the day due to OH&S laws adpoted by the shire council after consultation with their lawyers , so mother takes little Johnie to the DFO and cheers him up by him some designer clothing imported from China and they send his other mummy a photo via his ipad of him having lunch at Macca's. Mum sends a text to her partner, to pick up the other child from childcare and to pick up a take away meal, a nice bottle of wine to go with the meal.

Little Johnie would have googled learning to fly on his ipod, and e-mailed a number of flying schools about the JET PILOT CAREER fast track careeer devopment programme which includes fully intergrated ATPL, Multi-crew multi turbo-jet time, A320/B787 2 for 1 bonus offer, Business degree all done in 12 months. He then discussed and put a proposal to his mother over lunch to finance his flying training, she then e-mailed the CBA bank to enquire about remortaging the second unit they are negatively gearing on the Gold Coast to fund little Johnies dream career. Meanwhile little Johnie has finished lunch and shuffles off down the shopping mall trouser's at half mast and cap on backwards.

In the mid sixties I had the magical experience of marking for the Hardy bros when they dusted our linseed crops at Southbrook near Toowoomba. The tigers were powered by radials and did they sound great. The boys eventually killed them selves, one when riding on a positioning flight on a wing.

Ha. Good one Stationair8.....you should go into the writing game. But just let me change a couple of things....NOW it would be 50km,not your 30 miles and 'Johnie' would be Dillon,Ryland or Steele.

Are you sure they weren't Avro Cadets?

Not aware of any radial-powered Tigers.

Macca.

All Tiger Moths were powered by de Havilland Gipsy Major I inverted 4-cylinder inline engines.

I wonder if you are thinking of the CA-28 Ceres, which was a developed from the Wirraway trainer of World War II? That had a Pratt & Whitney R-1340 radial engine and I remember seeing Ceres operating in central Queensland during the 1970s. The other radial engine agricultural aircraft possibilities could be the Boeing Stearman or Gruman Ag Cat.

Probably better a PC-12 than the Bonanzas, 182's and a Boomerang that I have seen passing through!

Never seen an RV though!

Howard, I'm jealous, you get them bigger King Air's and we don't, .

Do they also have the TAS loading system in them?

That photo of the 2 RFDS King Air's in Cairns, you'd never pick that there's nearly 30 years of age between the 2....

Same TAS loading system and two extra seats. If they work out, I wouldn't be surprised to see them showing up elsewhere!

Not much has changed outside on the old girl, not bad for a machine with technology as old as me. I wonder when they will start building them out of plastic? With sidesticks? That might entice Wally back!

Now that is an aweful thing to say.........But at the same time Post Of The Year material too

No RV's, too quick for them Bannana boats and probably lot more range

Tailwheel

Definetly not an agcat or gruman but maybe an avro cadet but it seemed smaller. I used to walk around the aircraft when it landed in our paddock. An aviation nut of mine did know about the aircraft and even knew the engine type. I have an indistinct photo of it as it flew over my head and it sure looks like a tiger.

I'll do some research
