No big surprises there, apart from no windows in the upper bunks. I did consider the private train but decided I would rather spend the money on flying. It's a holiday, I can be tolerant about...

Thanks Zombywoof. It's OK, I've traveled by train all over the place. Try Myanmar for delays!

It's quite a large aircraft with a lot of lifting area and a 180 hp engine. It's a tailwheel type quite often used as a glider tug. Five on board is well within its capabilities, though not five...

Heston, I think we are singing from the same hymn book here. I honestly can't think of any heavier than air flying machine that can't be landed without use of the engine.

I think some of you don't understand the difference between low inertia and low speed. It's entirely possible to land (for example) an x-air engine stopped. The round out is more dramatic if you...

I think you would only need this for IFR,. So if the rest of the METAR shows that you couldn't use this airfield under VFR, then it wouldn't be relevant. Interesting to know, yes, but not required...

That looked really well judged and controlled. I'm certain I couldn't have done nearly as well. And clearing the runway, what's more. I'm seriously impressed by this guy's skill set.
