This S-92 only had 16 hours on it when I flew it on an acceptance flight. I will say that it was the smoothest helicopter at 155 KIAS that I have ever been in. I could've easily drank a cup of very hot coffee with no lid on the cup.

Many pilots are trying to use screens in the cockpit as touchscreens....

Yes it is from the MOI. We get on their pilots all the time about not touching the MFD's. As you can see, does no good.

Now we know why there was bugger all photos of the floods, apart from the fact that it was just so immense that I guess pretty much most would have so overawed and busy to worry about taking pics.

But the main reason is that our usual photographer has snuck off into some faraway jungle with a pringles fanchise having a cracking good time.

Band of morning frost on the west side of the ridges.


I will leave it to the veiwing public to guess what this building is. If you are a James Bond fan this view will be familiar.

The paper I read the report in, said it was a wind gust.
