  1. Just seen on channel 7 news Drifter accident on Woodgate Beach one person in hospital and one ok.
  2. Was a beautiful aircraft but if you end up upside down in a paddock not good can't get out. Pilot has done well I think.
  3. Can anyone advise as to whether or not trike hire is available in Australia?
  4. Maybe climate change is now causing these crashes you know the drought and all that?
  5. You would not have to be very bright to work out the low flying I was talking about was not take off and landing.
  6. I think most pilots know that low flying is dangerous but they still choose to do it. I talked to a bloke with who flew in a dangerous manner and he said he was just having fun and I said yeah but you are dead a long time. Now he's dead, it's all a part of evolution, most times you can't change it.
  7. And that sums it up for the beat-ups doesn't matter how good you think you are.
  8. I think something more than the pilot landed short has happened to cause this. I can't see how anyone flying that plane could not work out they going to be short and fail to do something about it. Watching it again looks/sounds like they put the power on a bit and then messed up the landing maybe this pilot needs to go back flight school?
  9. Why I always did glide approaches. Which in turn is how I survived a lot of engine failures (probably about 20).
  10. Probably better to do a flight plan. Do people even do that anymore? If someone needs Oz-Runways to tell them when they will run out daylight they should not leave the circuit area.
  11. It's not hard to imagine GPS and glass cockpit might be miss used in some cases. I wouldn't be surprised if RAAus is coming to grips with this right now.
  12. Can't help but think as good as that looks it might give some people a false sense of security. I really don't think that would be a great back up plan.
  13. Thanks for that can't explain how I got confused about that.
