Perhaps one's point of view would change if you were the patient, and to carry out such an operation there must have indeed been great need for urgency.

That's alright 'TQ' that piccy doesn't frighten me 'cause it's on the ground!

'Pros' couldn't agree more there with yr comment in some ways but the stupid thing about all this is that there is no need to risk the lives of others, higher risk that is (pilot/crew etc) when there are safer options!..........still it all boils down to one thing I guess,money, aviation & money go hand in hand & safety/risk gets put on the back burner.
Always amuses me what's the single biggest reason we have multi engined A/C in the first place? SAFETY. The power output of today's modern large jet engine for Eg could easily push a large airliner thru the sky as a single unit but it's not done as the manufacturers would never sell one 'cause it's unsafe.Boeing & Airbus would pump 'em out like hot dogs if they could sell 'em!
As I have said many times before it's all about choice & I simply wouldn't chose to fly in a higher risk environment than needed

tinpis, Digitalworks in Hallam, Vic, are a very good printing crowd. All manner of shapes and sizes and paper types.

Just get onto their website, download the program (all free), and you can upload, pay and have printed just about anything you want. Can even be posted anywhere in Aus if an individual cannot pick it up.

I've had them do a lot of printing for me. Highly recommended. Better than any other local two-bit shop that can just print your digi photos by plugging in your stick, pushing a couple of buttons and away you go.
I've got prints that have been on display for over 5 years and they are still going strong.

Hey UL,

Ignoring the vexatious idiot for a minute, or longer as you might prefer, here is a similar Tecnam Sierra that I fly from time to time, and it has pretty good wrinkles, and while they flex in flight you can only but wonder how many times they can do it before they crack.

The scene is nice, but not as interesting as yours.



PS....where are the Savvy pics of late? you been neglecting the old girl?

i think the P2000? has far more wrinkles than the trusty P96 even with it cloth covered controls. also spotted a nice RV10 at the gong today! good to see Tecnam have kept the self uprighting hinge pins across all models!

At least the vexatious is smart enough to know that the flex in the wing is designed in so that there are no stress cracks due to over rigid design not allowing stress relief.

The gong

P2002 Sierra, what is a P96? Do you mean a P92echo? What is the difference in the wings near the flap end and aileron, some doubles or something? I would have said they were the same at first glance.

the Savvy is being prepped for an outback adventure over this christmas break, and the lack of pics is a result of the usual gong weather today, being typical of the last few months! almost the last 12! bloody La Nina! the cloud sits on that escarpment for days and your going nowhere. well, not vfr anyway


heres a recent one, and a typical Gong day this year.
