What does your avatar tell us about you.

Recommended Posts

Mine is a photo of a Tiger Moth that to me brings together the romance of old biplanes, some of the beauty I think we all find in flying and a reminder of how bl..dy cold it can be flying an open cockpit in the UK anytime between November and March! I don't know where I found the photo, but it is part of my screensaver gallery and I call it "Winter Tiger". ... oh, and I loved flying a beautifully renovated Tiger (thanks to Bruce) and one in original condition, (thanks Doug), all about 15 years ago now .....

Obviously, my Trike and I. But the location is not my usual airstrip anymore but where I learned to fly trikes years before the photo was taken.

I've edited my above post so as not to draw attention from the thread... but there you go, changed the picture to a recent one, just a fortnight ago in-fact. 001_smile.gif.2cb759f06c4678ed4757932a99c02fa0.gif

:plane:Mine signifies that I`m an ultralight enthusiast and the fact that I was once told I was flying a broomstick with a garden chair on it.

Mine is a photo of my beloved Auster with me giving it a reassuring pat... fortunately, my bit of the image is so small it doesn't give much away!

The Auster and I were both built in the same year (1944)

Hi Powerin I agree with Maj it looks more dramatic with the background.Have you tried showing it as the original in your avatar ?

 

Alan.

I second that: please put the background in your avatar for better effect.

Isn't it enlightening to see the reasons behind some of your Avatars.

 

There's a few more regulars with unusual Avatars who haven't contributed yet....come on guys I'm dying to know.

My little gnome has followed me through a few forums of interest. I think of him as 'flying' through the woods on this forum, and merely running through them on coolrunning...

The aeroclub C152 that I learned to fly in. Well, one of them anyway - they have quite a few.

Under the premise that owners look like their dogs - I have long brown hair and going a little grey. The dog is "Sandy" my Hungarian Vizsla who flew all over the place with me. Unfortunately he cashed in his chips at 12yrs and I have been dogless ever since. Vizsla is pronounced VEE-sh-lah and the pural is Vizslac. Highly intelligent dog - would have another in a snap. I had my real picture on my profile, but I don't know if that is possible now.

My avatar is like me, a bit different from the normal.............in a good way 008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif Actually it shows that I'm into home designs that are out of the ordinary, and, I hope, attracts people to what I have to say..............even if it is shyte at times.

To the pure in heart, ALL things are pure. My symbol indicates a lack of ability/ motivation to come up with something better. ( so far)...Nev

My avatar features the 'There and Back' Jabiru J230 with a RAAF FA-18 as the backdrop. A great memory from a great trip around Australia.

I just use a photo of my plane.

Although some of your landings may be a close shave, you always finish up with a smooooth landing. 008_roflmao.gif.692a1fa1bc264885482c2a384583e343.gif

We should all put our heads together and come up with something for Nev.

 

Old Man Emu certainly found a good one for me.
