  1. With the investment and technology in this type of aircraft would it carry the black box.
  2. A tragedy upon a tragedy. Alf said it beautifully above. RIP brave Aviators. I wonder seeing the DC10 fly through the smoke and debris the effect on the engines and the prop turbines of the like of the C130. if they were to build an aircraft for this purpose from the ground up what would be it’s configuration and power plants.

  7. It is ironic that the steel salvaged from the wreck of R101 may have been used to build the Hindenburg.
  8. Interesting bit of History. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-12-30/australia-nearly-had-an-airship-service-to-london-until-tragedy/10630846

  10. Beefed up version http://www.worldaircraftco.com/surveyor/
  11. The fatal chopper crash that changed Australian aviation history WWW.ABC.NET.AU The accident was witnessed by many and widely reported, creating intense pressure for something to be done to improve safety in the skies. "After the crash, aviation safety authorities changed the laws so that single-engine aircraft and helicopters were no longer allowed to fly over built-up areas, but had to follow waterways and coastlines. That rule still applies today." Interesting Statement -

    What`s Happening???

    Hi Frank, that was a fair hike from your place, follow the Palmerston Hwy. Used to swim in Lake Eacham in the 70's. Used to be a Cassowary there that liked apples.
