Clean airplanes

It sure is nice to see that someone polishes their machinery, unlike the majority of operators here,,

ugly it is...



though, not bad looking from the front...


and its surprisingly huge!


it would be perfect for touring around Oz, or the world for that matter... more room in there than a motorhome! hopefully i can find out more about it, is it home built? Kit? factory?

I knew I'd seen it before, in an old aircraft directory when I was younger. It's ugliness struck me, but I believe there is a bed and a table in there, and you 'step up' to the cockpit.

And yes I am an extroadinarily large aerosexual.

Peuce...ignorance excused.

At places like Hamo and Shute Harbour, there are specially made stairs that you wheel up to the side of the floats. With the caravan it is more often than not you use the cargo door for loading rather than the air stairs. The beaver it doesn't really matter. The doors where designed to get 44 gallon drums in and out so passengers aren't to much of a problem.

The Amphibs are quite impressive to taxi around however, especially going eye to eye with 737 pilots.

On the water yes, but not when they're being flown across the country!
