Greaser,
You need a better camera then. One that doesn't show the curvature of the earth at 10,000ft.

Percival Pembroke. (with 1 rider attached)
It could be a 'President' or as dave says a 'Prince', but those engines look like as fitted to the 'Pembroke'
Although in those colours, I wouldn't be surprised if it is 1 of the 2 'Survey Prince's' operated by the Thai Armed Forces.

Trent, I reckon you're right with 'Pembroke', a quick google brought up the Wiki list of survivors for the Prince and they're all in museums.

A380 lights on??

A thing called sops- landing lights on in EK at 10000 ft agl. I'm sure even Qf has them. You know sops?
10,000ft AGL? What, were they flying over Mt Everest at the time??

Roulettes up north a couple of months ago. Lens wasn't quite long enough for this shot, so had to crop quite heavily.

Those Raafy types are a bunch of throttle bashers, looks like he's blown the oil rings on all eight cylinders. Those PC9's would have to have a V8 in them the way they go.

Of course it is tongue in cheek, every one knows those PC9's are fitted with V12's. Jeez, some people know nothing!

From a recent trip to the south...

Also stopped in at Temora, very cool place; may have to retire there I think.

Love the Firefly, but hate to see it out in the weather. Bring it inside!

It's time most of these pole-dwellers were replaced with fiberglass replicas.
