New acquistion for Execujet ?

A couple of new engines and a rudder and they'll have her up and running in no time
One of these beasties (MU2) went over my location this afternoon. Had a US rego - N425EW. Looked it up on FlightAware to see where it had come from & where it was going. Very interesting!

A few from today. With strong northerlies around we use Chance Bay as a back up beach for Whitehaven. Nice and calm and flat, and the Beaver joined in as well!

and you get paid for all this

All I can say is those bloody bats up there leave lots of poop on the Retard Vehicle.Recent trip earlier this month left much bat bombs on the tail feathers

Lucky you have a big shed.

Yes, I prefer warmer climates too. But it is stunning scenery.

The add on scenery for flight sim is pretty amazing. It's just sped up a little too quick.

Flamin heck, Ultralights! Just when I thought Piano Man's pics couldn't be beat. Wow. Stunning scenery.




And cowl flaps? My fight sim scenery doesn't look like that!

Just one more from our recent CFS training day; VH-OCU again..... It gives a rare chance to see a front on view of a full dump (doors wide open). In normal fire ground operations the aircraft would be higher (for obvious reasons), and - even more obvious - I would not be standing just there taking a picture

the only time i have ever had to orbit while in the circuit was here.. in CTA, to allow for a Embraer to overtake us.





60Nm of very glassy Bass Straight, and King Island comes into view.
Beautiful pies from the bakery, Sadly no crayfish pies.

Ultralights, hazarding a guess, the airstrip is St Helens, orbits in the circuit can be quite common at Hobart, the mountain looks like Barn Bluff and the best crayfish can be had at the wharf on King Island but only if your quick.

King island

And the dairy is worth a look, too! Experienced campaigners turn up with their own cooler bags...

One from the XXX archives.

Does anyone remember what happened to this aircraft?

Whilst I'm at it, I found this picture in my archives but have absolutely no idea where I took it.... has anyone seen this before?

Do any of you put flying photos in your logbook? I don't mean a photo of every flight but something special here and there.

Is it frowned upon? I think it will look great!

Looks like it had a bingle with another aircraft!

I remember something about a student in a Jabiru - lost directional control on landing and ended up in the side of the parked 206?
