its the Pharoah and if 'Keg' has this job...I'd happily settle for the dummy seat (RHS) he he

nah, I'd be happy even flying a Dash. at the moment, I'm flying a desk so anything's better than this.

Ya can take the bloke outa the salt, but.........

Its the salt, jet A, and the runs, that lives on.

YouTube - Maldivian Air Taxi TV promo

MALDIVES on Floats

Its the sunsets after 25 sectors viewed through the bottom of corona bottles overlooking the indian ocean.............

The 5 am Transfers, "Dispatch BATHALA or VILAMENDHOO no Dhoni", or "just do the God Damm 1 room overnight, with one way fuel." Ahh, you gotta love it. You haven't lived till you have survived the island BI POLAR. Recommend it to anyone seeking adventure. Its Gods country.

The tinea has well cleared up, and now I'm in the flight levels, but not a day goes by when i don't think of the 40 knot South Wester High Tide Shitstorms at Kuredu, or the glassy sunset arrivals before the complementary 10 minute massage after the last flight at MEDUFUSHI. All good and bad, is all good.

I ain't complaining that's for sure.

Although, I reckon Stallie's gig is the dogs bollox.

Then again, flying a Twotter on floats would be up there as well.
Not "a' beaver on floats. CM from Alligator had some comments about his Beaver versus...

Is this what you're dreaming about?

Dropping names isn't appropriate - but lets just say some top names have been on private snorkelling trips with us.
