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?
It is right indeed. See here: Reevers Warbirds | & Pastoral Services

Nice pics Piano, brings back memories of my 900 and 7X time, although to be honest I think Dassault screwed the pooch by having no nose wheel tiller on the 7X..made it feel like a C172 , albeit a $45 million C172!

Thanks mate, although having never flown with a tiller I can't comment, however I quite like the fact the pedals control the nose wheel. Still, love the 7X!

Cool

Long time no speak, friends!

Here's a couple I've taken recently whilst having my big red flashy ASIC around my neck.




Cheers

Nothing of special photographic merit here, but a couple of pictures of the Aerotech / SACFS strategic observation and transport C 208B - codenamed Birddog 500. Not room for very many pax, but lots of electronics, comms and sensing gear to assist and direct the fleet of AT-802s and the ground firefighters to counteract the 'old red enemy' here in the fire danger season.

A couple of captures from SA CFS partial re-location operations to HAB yesterday. Photographing a water dump in this kind of operation is about the only chance one gets. In a real life situation it simply won't be possible, because being on the fire ground where bombing operations are taking place is very unhealthy - for several obvious reasons .

Pretty cool to watch.

As was the F/A-18A Hornet display. Pretty amazing weather for this time of the year in Melbourne.

Impressive. Sweet display.

Pretty sure with the high gusty winds, his Vref would've been pretty low and could've made a landing down the front straight. Got an idea that was his intention with that slow pass with the hook out as well. Shame, would've been the best part of the day.

Maybe helicopter pilots to have more fun that fixed wingers... I could think of worse things to be doing on my Tuesday afternoon.

DF, yes it is aerobatic, airworthy and regularly flown. I'm not sure if it's original (so many here were) but if not then it's an exact replica!
