Angry Rest in Peace

Hey 22clipper.....Mate the Nepali Aviation Safety record is the WORST by far in the World; 38 fatal crashes this century CAAN is not interested in promoting/enforcing safety just bribery & corruption to look the other way & party-on is their SOP The last 2 most recent was a 270 hour old new Twin Otter with full IFR panel, radalt etc etc etc but only permitted to fly DayVFR punched into cloud & slammed into a Mountain killing all on board. The other was an 750XL had a engine failure, Pilot's didn't feather the prop & slammed into a perfect field for a landing killing the PIC, the CoJo was fatally injured was begging for help for 3 hours before CAAN dispatched a Helicopter for a look without a Doctor on-board, news was on google 15mins after the forced landing but CAAN was sleeping at the wheel (again/as usual)

Hey VF,
Wish I'd known you'd be in Clovelly.
Living 100m from the beach, it would have been a pleasure to entertain you and yours.
We could have also reminisced about the Western Queensland days.

BTW, that pic from #3527 is an absolute stunner.
Cheers,
Stan.
