  1. https://www.australianflying.com.au/latest/gas-plume-could-stall-light-aircraft-aopa
  2. Perhaps people might be found earlier which could lead to a different outcome. Also, regardless of outcome, lets the families know earlier what has happened.
  3. Like the discussion regarding the loss of a Bristell leaving Shell Harbour yesterday becoming a discussion around other things ... obviously suits many but ...
  4. Umm a thread consistently coming back up to the top can mean a few people are having a chat. If it was a new thread, with an appropriate subject heading, others may also be interested.
  5. Umm such a friendly turn of phrase. I don't think a little thread drift is a problem. But when it keeps going perhaps starting a new thread may make it easier for people looking at the site to find what they are looking for ....... If you are involved in the discussion on the thread drift you know what it is about, but if you come in a little later, or after not looking for awhile it isn't quite the same. Generally I just move on rather than try and work out what is going on. If that makes me a pedant well so be it.
  6. Yep, but the media are never wrong .... not .... also I think there was only one person on board, not two.
  7. Hope they are both okay. https://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/victoria/pilot-trapped-in-moorabbin-airport-plane-crash/news-story/1f1ad73a83869c033b87d5270b18ca54
  8. MIght be worth editing the name of this thread. Plane Crash Today has kind of lost its meaning. Given a plane has crashed at YMMB this morning.
  9. I'm confused ... often ... JBR is an RV-14A. So a MTOW of about 930kgs. Not sure how an increase to 650kgs or 750kgs would have any impact on the safety of this model?
  10. I didn't read the Airventure post as RAAus organising the raffle. Just that Airventure expected them to bail them out. But I didn't have a raffle ticket, didn't go to Airventure and know nothing about the trust.
  11. No need to google for me. I've been to Tibet and heard about these. The Tibetan Buddhists have a very different outlook on life and death. The monks also create butter sculptures using ashes of the deceased and yak butter. Google will tell you more but this is what was done with Kurt Cobain's remains.
  12. I fly, as do many of my friends. The Australian Woman Pilot Association is very active. But sometimes the posts/comments on this forum mean I stop coming back for awhile. At times it can get very blokey.
  13. Another option to a device such as RVAC uses is to have the ashes 'decanted' into a paper bag or two with the top folded over, not tied or taped. When you drop the paper bag out the storm window it opens on the way down. This works well and avoids ashes all over the cabin.
  14. Hmm Truth. Banned?? No. You still show on the list of members. Muted (can't post for short period of time) perhaps.
