  1. Yep, thats my Daisy, 10 kg of Maine Coon. I would love to get into trikes, its a long standing dream, but I do like working on aircraft themselves. if even I could get involved on the maintenance and repair side I'd be happy!
  2. Australian Army operated Turbo-Porters with the PT6A-20 from 1968 onwards. The type saw action in Vietnam, as did the Air America (CIA) Fairchild built Turbo-Porters.
  3. Did a lot of time working on and flying in Army Pilatus Porters. Been flown horizontally, laterally, vertically as well as backwards depending on the wind. Favorite experience was listening to Mirage pilots on the fighter net screaming 'bingo fuel' in the circuit waiting for us to land at Willytown.
