206

XXX

I remember that day well, can still see it all unfolding in front of me, I have my fair share of hours on that particular aircraft but on that day she was still tied up while we used the other 206.

As mentioned, a student attempting cross wind landings, things didnt quite go to plan.. Luckily for the student, just a little shock and red face..

Put the old girl out of action for a while though.. I remember picking her up after the repair job having to ferry to MB.. Was a little nervous and even wore my pilots rig, climbed a lot higher than necessary for the short ferry.

As far as I know she is still flying today, but now the big brother is a Airvan...

Hi all..
I hope this is the right place to ask:
I'm looking for reference photos of Cessna 150s with the taildragger conversion fitted, specifically close-up photos of the tail wheel assembly, for a modelling project.
If anyone can help, it'd be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

Hi SkydiveAndy, were you around when this one happened?

There's a lesson in this... always tie down your aircraft. Who would have thought on on a nice day with light winds that a strong front could appear from nowhere and cause an Airvan to flip over! Nobody saw it coming until it was too late.

I guess that's what happens when you have a relatively slow stall speed, she starts flying in a lot less wind

Any takers on my chemtrails photo? The answer to the location is in the detail.... There's really only one place in Australia that this photo could have been taken (from a capital city perspective).

Yeah not bad Morno. Must make the Canberrarians feel left out to see that. Brilliant weather in Canberra this week (apart from the afteroon tropical storms), you wouldn't see a formation like that otherwise.

On the pic of the airvan, how do they get it back the right way up without causing damage? It doesn't look straightforward to a simple sailor,like me..
Don't tell me it just takes a couple of strong Aussies
