  2. I remember the briefing I was given by a 747 Captain in the days when you could sit up front pre-9/11. "If you see me and the First Officer get up and run out the door - follow us, and quickly!"
  3. My understanding is that there is a certification requirement that as the AoA increases as the control column is being pulled back, the pressure required on the control column should not decrease. For the MAX, the aerodynamic effect of the larger, more forward engine nacelles led to a decrease - hence the decision to feed in nose down trim via MCAS as a quick and dirty solution to the certification problem.
  4. I now understand why I go on trade days - what an awful experience Peter! I can't imagine what it must have been like in that crowd in that heat.
  5. Yep - but my last few have been in my logbook regardless (as well as on my licence)! Old habits die hard I guess!
  6. Don't even need to do that - I just email a scan of the logbook page to RAAus. Same with GA endorsements (RU, MPPC, etc, also for your X-country on your RPC).
  7. OK, I'll take a stab at Ballarat
  8. I'll be flying in to YAVE, avoid the transport hassles (CASA ramp check a small price to pay).
  9. That'd be VH-ABR "Kanana" which was out and about today with a return trip to Bendigo. An original DC-3 (not C-47 conversion) with a pair of Wright Cyclones. One of the stars of the Lilydale airshow recently. Interestingly, based at Tullamarine YMML, not YMEN.
  10. Some fantastic shots from Duncan Fenn - especially the Decathlon! https://www.facebook.com/pg/drfphoto/photos/?tab=albums
  11. All good - weather turned out OK. Will post a few pics when I sort them.
