SWMBO just asked what I was looking at, that provoked ooh's and aah's. "Porn, my dear, aero-porn!" Thanks Dora-9, looks like a great event.

I think I'll have to go have a lie down.
Thanks, D-9.

Wonderful photos, Dora-9; Spinex and junior.VH-LFA!

Thank you.

I love the D.H. Dragon! I'll never forget my first flight in an "airliner" was a Dragon Rapide in 1965. I was 7 years old but still remember the fun of it.


P.S. Dora-9, In your 3rd photo in post #1507. That looks like the beautifully restored red Stinson Voyager that I very recently saw at a fly-in at Holbrook.

Gerry:

Not to nit-pick (well not much anyway), it's a DH 89 Dragon Rapide and not a DH 84 Dragon.

Regarding the Stinson, it's a superb restoration and could be yours for $65000.

Thanks, Dora-9 for the two close ups of STN. Beautiful! The instrument panel is a work of art.

It's a long time since I had a flight in a Dragon Rapide..

Herewith a couple from the TAVAS flying day. I battled a bit with the flying photos, with most action being up sun, but for what it's worth...;

Thanks for that Dora-9, superb photos.


The working man's Spitfire.


Not been picky, but none of the pilots are wearing safety vests was that not part of the fifty point safety plan and briefing prior to going flying?

Yes, lovely.
Thanks for those, D-9 and spinex.


Looking at Mark Smith's shots, one could get the impression that he's not just a lucky shooter.


Oh, BTW, Wings over Illawarra (HARS, Albion Park) is happening this weekend.
The FW190 is making its Oz debut, all going well.

Sadly there's two vacant seats in the Chippies..

Great photography from Mark Smith. Thanks, Dora-9 for posting them.
