14000hours

I read somewhere recently that the average Qantas aeroplane has flown about 65000 hours. They will be flying for some time yet.

The best fun was the aural legs of the VAR.

Nice to know there is another old flyer still out there who has that endorsement

VAR, you have to get right in between the legs on one of those for a bit of aural right?




Ernabella is even more intersting when the cloud is down low.

Nah Jamair, they were his boots. But why anyone would wear work boots to climb Ayers Rock is beyond me.

But he beat me to the top, so I guess my cross-trainers aren't much better. Either than or he is fitter than I am.

That old strip, hard by the Redsands Motel, where the dingoes into the garbage bins would awaken all but the drunkest. Last time there was in Connair's 180 UPG, the one Harry 'Pelvis' Purvis earlier on did his Rock scenics in. Either UPG or UPJ eventually went to a bloke called Dave (Mittiebah Station) and his wife Jan, who flew F/A on Herons. (Had a feed at her place one night. Her old bassoon she'd turned into a standard lamp. Her interests at the time lay in a Heron driver, P.H.)

Please check PMs, tinpis.
