  1. Based on the video and the 3 screenshots, I’m don’t think it was a spin, I think that it was a spiral. One of the indicators of a spin is a low and stable airspeed - the airspeed in this video is increasing. The clever people say that it is not possible to ‘sense’ level without sight - and that’s what they lost when they entered cloud with no horizon - either actual or artificial. If you haven’t already - read ‘178 seconds to live’.
  2. Height, Speed and Luck... pick any two.
  3. Old Koreelah - Computer says No... I can’t send you a message. Please text me the contact details to zero for fife too, too wun six, zero wun too. (spelling intentional to confuse the bots)
  4. Thank you for your replies. 800m requirement because I’ll have a heavy load in a retract... not the perfect bush plane. Paradise Station looks amazing - but probably only 5 min closer than Inverell by road. At this stage the winner looks like Old Koreelah’s contact - message inbound soon.
  5. Does anyone know of a runway longer than 800m between Inverell, Armidale and Glen Innes in NSW? I need to be in that area for one night next week and would be very grateful if I could use a private strip somewhere near X.
  6. Thanks BP. I tracked the (ex) owner of the property who sadly reported that the runway now sports a brand new fence - right through the middle!
  7. Does anyone know who owns the strip 5nm south of Leyburn, QLD? It‘s 18.5NM SW of Clifton and runs north-south parallel to the Toowoomba Karara Rd.
  8. I have been a staunch and vocal supporter of OzRunways for many years. I too have asked them numerous times to share data with Avplan so that we can ALL see each other. Sadly, their ‘commercial decision’ flies in the face of the safety that we require, and that they very easily could provide. Avplan have indicated their willingness to work with Ozrunways on many an occasion - an attitude that I admire. Unless I understand why their ‘commercial decision’ is more important than our safety, I will not be renewing my subscription this year.
