C'mon TQ, they're all at the exchange complete with nipple stickers (cause you can't go nuuude in wa) or at home enjoying the married life with three hubbys-each one doing one week on two weeks off. They have never met eachother of course

Ok ok here's an easy one

Exactly, I think those pointy things on the end of the wings, they are AG impliments used for ploughing the fields priour to planting.......then the guy in Tin's video comes along and topdresses the field.

Seems that in some parts of the world you can get away with that.

tin...nice Beaver! Spent a day in the right hand seat of a Fieldair (I think) one just like that back in the 80's in the Manawatu...great fun!! CS had an interesting technique for shifting stock off the strips...not particularly effective...but again....heaps of fun!

I suspect I have done the same thing, in the same Beaver, with the same pilot (CS). You are right - great fun.

Not Fieldair - Griffin Ag-Air!

I seem to recall that in the mid-80s, Hal Griffin had 24,000 hrs on ag work - 12,000 hrs fixed wing and 12,000 hrs rotary wing. Quite an extraordinary feat!

FTDK - and I believe Hallet's still going strong with a range of (including vintage) ag aircraft. CS had a stint at tourist flying in his rebuild project (with WB at one stage I believe?!), but has since "faded from radar cover".

But the best ag ride I got was in a DC3 out of WO (or GS) in the early 80's (I think - grey matter failing me now!!!)....GT's father. Need anymore 2 letter acronyms??

Yes, I have decoded your 2 letter groups. Brings back some memories!

FYI Hallet is still going strong, displayed at "Wings over Wairarapa" in January this year with John Bargh in his air tractor...

Very very impressive.

"Virgin in Cairns"

Probably the only virgin you are likely to find in Cairns - without risking a lenghty goal sentence!
