He probably got sick of the selective censorship and pointless trivia.

Did I dream it or did I actually see his Bonanza sharing a hangar with Mr and Mrs Toller's Cirrus? About 18 months ago at YSCB?

He might be out sleeping under the wing in a paddock somewhere because I think Mr and Mrs Toller are no longer the proud owners of a Cirrus. Supporting a hangar by yourself is not for the faint hearted.

FTDK is alive and well and was in contact with a fellow ppruner a couple of days ago.

Geez, someone actually cares?

I mostly flew for my work - supposed to be sort of semi-retired these days. The Bo was never mine - I had it dry leased. Gave it back when I stopped work.

After 44 years I am almost retired from flying too. I'm over it - too many stupid rule changes that make no sense to me and a very GA unfriendly aerodrome in my place of abode.

This is the bottomless pit that I throw money into these days!



Converts dollars into various vapors at a far greater rate than the Bo!

That's one of the harshest descriptions of a Landrover that I've heard

FTDK - nice to hear from you, but you've clearly forgotten the "3 X F's" rule!

If you want to talk about mate's boats:
Did Syd-Bne recently without refuelling, only used about 20L including motoring from Southport to the bay.

Dora-9,

FTDK was leasing his Bo so hopefully the same with the boat?
