Thanks again for your help there Spinex..!


Squawk7700 - these photos were all taken on the Saturday when the weather was pretty much perfect. Friday's conditions on the other hand, were atrocious, as you say, 40+deg, 30+kts, truly hideous. We didn't bother going over on the Friday. Left early on Sat morning (last photo - sunrise pic). Full credit to everyone who flew in Friday evening show. And the spectators who braved the conditions..!

Got it.... yes, day VFR only so not an issue. Same issue as a Dynon, Avidyne or similar I guess.

OK, most domestic airliners are more or less boring - at least the ones I usually see. However I make an exception for the Qantas Retro Roo I, here seen climbing out from 23 at YPAD.

I guess I'm old enough to remember that this is something like most of them looked in an earlier era.

You only do it to make us all jealous Piano Man. Happy New Year and if you were going the right way in one of those Falcon thingies you could have doubled up.

I was driving along and stumbled upon this find. It reminded me of Rob St. John's visits to our area a number of years ago.

Ting ting bilong mi.

Definitely New Guinea in the good 'ole days and I suspect the location is Lae and is probably the precursor the the famous beat up by the 'Ta-tas' Electra......a sight to behold!

Not Port Morbid. Looks like the old Lae town strip?

I'll guess immediately prior to TAA being folded into Air Niugini in November 1973?

Ah yes - the toilet roll dogfighter! I have fond memories of Rob's visit to YLEC - think it was about 1993. Took me for a ride in ALP, & promised me he wouldn't do a loop the loop without my consent. He lied! And of course who could forget his lady friend Catherine - I will always remember where she kept the money for the flights!

Whatever happened to Captain Boggles and did he have a significant flying history?

I remember him setting up shop at our field and he had placed about 30 signs next to the road every 500 metres or so for 15 kilometres in each direction.. He burnt more diesel than a gas in his smoke system in the Tiger!

Gone to the great hangar in the sky - either last year or the year before, can't remember which.

and did he have a significant flying history?
Ah yes - I guess you could say that! He hated CASA with a passion, as they did him. The funny thing is I believe he used to be one of them many years ago, way before it became CASA.

ALP became VCR which I flew for a while. Rigging wasn't right and the fabric on the left elevator was too tight, warping it. Utterly useless brake on the tail wheel. I recall it didn't fly anywhere near straight.

Perhaps that explains some of the manoeuvres I've seen this aircraft perform!

I happened to drive by Archerfield yesterday and spotted what I thought was a Douglas A26 (bright orange) under canvas. Is this right? I could be wrong with the a/c id but, as I've always been a WW2 a/c fan, thats the first thing that came to memory. Whats it doing there?

I know it is very similar to the last photo I posted, however this was sunrise over Queensland late last week. Always good to be back home even if it's a short trip!
