  1. Obviously the jet could easily outrun the drone in this footage, but I think the drone pilot did an amazing job. https://www.facebook.com/UNILADTech/videos/2885299601741244
  2. Some "Go fund me" pages seem to do pretty well Spacey!
  3. Regardless of the cause, I and many others feel for your loss. At least you are still with us which is the main thing.
  4. Phil. i'm beginning to worry a little about you posting your long exposures on a cold night.
  5. Interesting article re: hydrogen powered aircraft. https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20210401-the-worlds-first-commercial-hydrogen-plane. The upside is that for those of us on limited flying budgets, we could possibly see slot meters installed, where you throw in a couple of bob to do a quick circuit or two
  6. Bunderburg Bolts have been available for quite some time, it seems.
  7. Lets hope so Skippy. Badgerys Creek is not supposed to open until about 2026. Hopefully Bankstown will last till then.

  10. The Airtruk was a noisy little bugger, we could always hear them climb out of the Seven Hills yard, back in the days of my married bliss in nearby Baulkham Hils. when I actually owned a house.
  11. Any thread you want to post to should be fine Pete. Many on here would be so glad to hear that you're not pushing the daises out of the ground. Kind Rgds. Alan (planey)
  12. Fantastic! I just love to see how guys on these forums help each other, and try to solve problems. Well done! It's all about watching others backs, and trying to keep us all safe.
  13. Thanks lee-wave, of course you are correct. Just goes to show that great Aussie wine can confuss your fuzzle box late at night. Wing Cdr. Ken Wallis lived up on the east coast in Norfolk I think.
