Having had a one hour jolly in 77Sqn Mirage 111D, A3-116 on 24th Jan 1980... +5g and -2g aeros.. Nothing beats a Mirage for me!

(So I was paid to go through the speed of sound without having to buy a Concorde ticket!)

And 760 gallons of AVTUR burned...

Right, I know I have my orders but managed to get this one at the reef last weekend and after much thought it has to be seen. The SLR was at home so all I had was my ipad. No editing has gone into this picture whatsoever, so I will leave this as my last Beaver/Caravan photo of the year

Hello Piano Man,
I just registered to write this:
if you intend to stop posting pics of Beaver/Caravan etc, please feel free to PM me all the unposted ones

Your pics are one of the reasons I have bookmarked "The Home of Photos in Dunnunda! Mk II"

keep 'em coming, public or private

It may not be an aircraft, but it's pretty close... it's got a propeller, Continental engine and a couple of rudders. (plus some pretty impressive artwork!)

That glider must be for students coz it's got training wheels. Nice photo.
Please, more piccys (piccies?) from Piano Man. My brother was a floaty so they are immensely appreciated and all that I have seen are excellent quality.

Trawling the internet a while ago looking for some information on my uncle (Blake Whitehair) who used to live in Tibooburra & had his own aircraft. Found this:

There is a photo there of Des Porter & UXG.
