Bleats Incorporated

I don't suppose the fact that Gus came to CX from Down Under has anything to do with the bleating Poms attacking him????

It was a great day Lonewolf. I joined the RAAF in Feb 1958 and later spent 10 years on C130A-E-H as a F/E between '68 and '78. Many old friends were there and it was good to catch up and share a beer...

APEC IN PORT MORESBY

I would suggest that this example of sheer wastefulness of funds should be enough to tell the PNG Government to bugger off next time

It was actually the Armstrong 500 in November 1960, I was there and it was a great day. The link below gives a good summary. Some surprising placings in vehicles driven by future greats.

Low N1

This to me says that the reliance of automation of systems has, and probably will continue to do so, lead to a loss of crew awareness of how the aeroplane actually works. The first

50 Years continuous production

Not many in civil service I know, but the Lockheed C130 Hercules has been in continuous production for 62 years and still going. It is without doubt the greatest airlifter ever built, bar none.
