Can`t recognise you from your user name however I do remember a Grasshopper,Jack Stuart who passed away several years ago had one and also a Wheeler Scout and I think the other one was a Jackaroo and he later also got a Quick Silver.


I was president of the F.N.Q U.A around that time,you may remember me,if you get back to the Cairns area look me up,I`m still at Deeral and Still have the strip.

G'day Frank,


Yes I know you,your recent neighbours who are now travelling in their bus recently stayed with us.You used to have "FEAR "on the front of your drifter way back when you were training, in fact I landed on your strip once.


I did my training with Bob Harris and Carlo,back in 76,Tom Hodgson first flew my Grasshopper.


I knew Jack Stewart also.


My name is DEs Young I had Innisfail Marine that should trigger your memory.


Hoping to get back onto the Tablelands to be nearer family if we can sell down here.


Prices up there are ridiculous at the moment,will give you a call when next up.


Do you still fly?

G`Day Des,


Of course I rember you and what a memory you have.










I got my timing wrong,it was quite a bit later that I became president.
