Air France concord and two MIR in DRW around mid '80's. Concord overnighted on a world tour. Did two flyovers with the Mirages on the wings.

Memories, if not of that particular aircraft ..

The first tour was around mid 1972 (-02, as I recall) ... we all wagged aerody class to go out to SYD and watch it from the taxiway in front of the new international terminal which was under construction. The takeoff low frequency noise effects on the abdominal viscera was exceedingly unpleasant .. I certainly could understand how sound could be used as a torture tool.

Aerodynamics lecturer, although a lovely bloke, was a through and through greenie ... was not impressed turning up to an empty lecture theatre ...

Why have a 6-pack when you can have a NINE pack...

SWTT, very much like what the nine pack is bolted too. Familiar looking V-tail spotted lurking on the other side of the windshield.

Very nice, I've always wanted to have a go in one of those. None in NZ sadly!

That V-35 sure gets around a fair bit. I saw it on King Island during Australia Day this year.

Speaking of King Island, there was a very schmick RV14 down there from YRED a couple of weeks back. I'm guessing only one of perhaps a couple flying in Aus.

Yes, I saw that beautiful one there and had a short chat with the builder/pilot. It is the first RV14 that I've seen so far. It has the marvellous personalised rego: VH-XIV.

I regret not having had a closer look at Alan Carlisle’s RV14 while at YKII. Too busy BF’ing CFK, GIII!

My RV10 kit will hopefully be on its way .... soon.
