  1. Incident involving a plane and a train on a road. NTSB will have to draw on all the areas of their expertise for this investigation.
  2. After the  fitting of a Dyson Garmin And transponder I have a lot of redundant wiring under my Savannah dash..Too big a mess .The original Icp wiring splits to feed a 10 and 15 amp fuse breaker. I’m going to rewire the power feeds with tefzel wire, probably 20 amp, any suggestions? Next I have three options. 1. put in a 10 and 15 amp busbar off the existing fuse breakers..Option 2.power up one busbar then individually fuse each line, most have their own fuse protection anyway ..Option 3 is put in an automotive type fuse block and feed off that .Marc Ausman from Eaa gives this system the green light in his tutorials. I think 🤔 this would be the easiest for any future troubleshooting or maintenance. Any advice or constructive criticism will be greatly appreciated.           

  3. How to convert to bus bar?
  4. I saw about 8 cropdusters working between Boomi and Boggabilla yesterday. It was quite remarkable that half the country was underwater and the rest was highly developed irrigation diverting flood water, business as usual. Two working at 90 degrees to each other, when their runs coincided, turned into the same space. Must have been uncomfortable even for the pros!
  5. There was a lot of radio traffic around WeeWaa and Goondiwindi this morning. Sad to know one of us didn't get home.
  6. With a systematically disarmed population sparely distributed, and an underfunded defence force we will be powerless to stop them stepping off from their string of Pacific naval bases and taking what we have!
  7. They are NSW rural fire service bureaucrats. The blokes who do the actual work wear blue or yellow shirts and yellow coats!
  8. Did you try in an adjustable seat model or the original seat layout. I am a long bodied 189cm and fit quite comfortably in the standard seat. We fitted a 6' 9" bloke in an XL at Bundaberg airshow. He had more head space than I do but was a bit tight around his knees under the dashboard. Adjustable bucket seats are a whole different story!
  9. And hope I never will perhaps? Who knows how any of us will react until the fan goes off and the temperature rises
  10. The Flightaware track looked like two uneventful circuits followed but a wider circuit and a premature turn mid base leg before the trace ceased.
  11. The Loctite superglue GEL is better because it fills the spaces under the base and they don't peel off so easily. The nozzle is not hard to use with the Gel.
  12. I had failed to lodge my latest flight plan so I had to ring her to rectify.
