    Visualising wake turbulance

    They used that method to teach you to fly a perfect 360 when I was learning. If you can feel your wake as you close the loop, you're good.

    Interesting development of a Wilga.

    I've been following his channel too lately. I wouldn't mind having just 10% of his energy and can do attitude. I think I'm more of a Project Binky man.

    Thanks for posting, there are some great videos there, I'll be working my way through them. I suppose everyone has seen Henry TrikeLife's channel, but if not, it's worth a look also.

    Jabiru Catches Fire

    What type of battery?
  7. Its amazing how much damage an airliner can take and still keep flying.
  8. My first solo was in a PA38 at Archerfield and as I waited for clearance to line up, a warbird pulled up behind me . I don’t know what it was, but it looked big. I’m glad I wasn’t aware of that photo at the time!

    Another IMC terror story. . .

    Good move Phil. If you'd played the polite english gent, you'd probably both be dead now.
  11. They burn the thrusters on the ISS from time to time to keep it up there. Here's a demo of what happens when they do.
  12. How to spend millions of dollars in just one second.

    Lucky to get out of that alive.

    Accident at Gympie

    Fixation perhaps. I did a driver training day with Paul Stokell at Morgan Park where they teach you ( among other things ), the skill of looking through the corners, not at the wall rapidly heading your way. The reason is of course, that you tend to steer in the direction you're looking.
