  1. So sad to hear, but as we all grow older, we hopefully still manage to do what is close to our heart. RIP, and condolences to the family and friends. Mother nature is not always kind to the decisions that we take.
  2. Pissed again on duty-free, but the steadying stick helps.
  3. However, we are all creatures of habit, If the PIC was not totally on top of new input requirements under certain conditions, the way he has done things for years flying similar, but different models, could cause issues handled by some, but not all who operate them. These days, everything gets more complicated, but in most things "simplicity is the essence of reliability" The Air France A330 issue with pitot's problem was fairly quickly overcome, and the skies are now full of them operating safely. Hopefully they get the 737-800 Max sorted quickly too. It would be devastating for a company like Boeing's reputation.
  4. A nice trip report. Thanks for posting Rene.
  5. It works well on outboard motor corrosion as well.
  6. Approaching 8 yrs of happiness on this site can't be bad in anyone's books. Just so appreciative of all your hard work. Thanks Ian, and helpers.
  7. The sand looks damp under port wing, but a bit dry on the starboard side. Anyway, it always helps it it stays the right way up, as in this case.
  8. Posting that, is a bit cruel to some of us old geysers Phil. I have a few procedures coming up and it looks like I need to add a new brain processor to the list as well.
  9. Or come to Cole's supermarket in Earlwood where hypothermia sets in after a few minutes.
  10. Could not see any photo along those lines. Possibly a good thing as i'm about to have lunch
  11. All the very best mate, work on the assumption that the devil looks after his own. I too had a very recent spell in hospital with ticker problems, pneumonia and fluid on the lungs and made a discovery about hospital food. The orange bits are carrots, green bits are beans and the yellow bits are sweet corn. Cleverly they manage to get them to all taste the same. Any leftovers are exported to China . Take care, and we all look forward to your return, fitter and better. Kindest Regards, Planey
