Despot 78,
On 24 Jan 1980 you took me along for an engine air test in "Grumpy Monkey" Mirage A3-116. That remains the most exciting hour of my life. We flew through the speed of sound high level and then a bit of low level hooning around Bulahdelah and Myall Lakes. Fantastic!!! My Machbuster Certificate is hanging on my office wall.
A3-116's fin still exists at the Air Cadets HQ at Coffs Harbour airport. Whenever I travel through there I pay it a visit.

Cheers, Despot 20. (Us RadTechs used our tooltag numbers when doing radio checks.)

(Sorry guys if this is perceived as thread drift.)

Some nice vintage stuff there, but crammed into a small hangar, hard to take decent pics.

Cpt Bloggs,

Sadly, even some of the newer metal Leadsled flew commercially are now parked at Victorville CA. Ie B747 438s.

I think that part of Leadsled's long life can be put down to a healthy diet supplement, the consumption of Coopers Pale Ale.

Works for me too.

yep, the Mrs was flying the ikea shed in the last pics,myself in the Robin with instructor on a check flight, first pics i was in the ikea shed and the Mrs in the Robin returning from her first aerobatic competition flight.

now just have to save up for tailwheel, Pitts then extra endo... might take a while after the last few months..no chrissy presents from us this year.

Also learnt the Savannah has quite large wake vortex's off those wingtips.. you certainly knew it when you hit them. moved the robin around quite a bit.

Glad to see you enjoying the journey.

And doing it it professionally.

UL you are a classic example of what is good in GA.

Ultra, a nice photo of Broken Bay, Barrenjoey and Lion Island. Good to see a few boaties having fun down there too. I really enjoy doing that there also, out of Cottage Point or Refuge Bay. (Lots cheaper fun than in my mate's V35!) But flying in the Bo is priceless!

Aircraft is probably less dodgey than the blokes involved.....if I were to guess!
