  1. 7252, There was a fatal a few years back at Yarram in a J170 for that exact reason during his go around which was quite sad for not only the pilot but also for the people that saw it unfold. Alf
  2. Turbs, Yep a 172 with full flap was a handful back in my training days in the mid 80’s when you did a go around, quite a few lives have been lost with the seats either failing or not being locked in properly. Takes a hell of a lot of effort when it pitches up. Alf
  3. Turns, My guess it will but that is why you have a control column or stick for, I was taught to tell the plane what you want to do and not have it dictate to you.
  4. All good plans can turn to Sh!t just as ours have, but we are making the most of what we have. 6 months back the planning started for an outback adventure with some friends who haven’t really been too far from home in their planes. Planned to fly from West Sale to SwanHill- Broken Hill - Coober Pedy - Innamincka - Thargomindah - Longreach - Charleville- Dubbo - Temora - Echuca - Stawell then back home over 14 days so booked accommodation and car hire. Then!!!!! 3 weeks before departure good old Vic goes in to 1 week lockdown so SA & Qld close the borders to us Mexicans, hmmm
  5. Well I guess he could say the child is a newborn and his wife went in to expedited labour when the engine failed, was born on descent to the forced landing cleaned up and dressed before touchdown. Oh and the child aged a year through the experience of it all. That should work?
  6. Never need to ever buy a lotto ticket those guys in the Metro, amazing it held together.
  7. Well, guess he won’t be flying like a knob again, hey train driver how cool do I look, yeah mate you looked cool right up until you messed up, toot toot. winner
  8. Very fortunate to get out of that and going to make full recovery. Guess it is a game of seconds and mm as a degree here and there at impact could have had a totally different outcome.
  9. OME, Motorbike does have a written checklist, when I had my Microlight it was part of the pre takeoff/pre landing checklist. (Helmet/harness secure) one cannot rush the art of flying.
  10. Condolences to the families of the lost aviators, blue sky’s and tailwind to you both.
  11. Only one will win and that’s the lawyer as the win whether you win lose or draw, just need to take a cup of concrete and harden up, get over it move on as you will be better for it not going through that school.
  12. Well for starters you cannot replace them with me or the missus as o would not have been there if I was not current. His decision making alone brought him and his son undone, as sad as it is it should not really have happened but it did.
  13. At the end of the day he wasn’t current or licensed so he should not of been flying so it shouldn’t have happened. Can’t blame ATC on this one as he should not of been in the air piloting a plane.
  14. Susan sounds like a bit of a Covid Karen. Bet you got more chance of getting a 4 lane freeway built from Australia to the USA across the Pacific from the Genie you found in a bottle on the beach than asking him to figure out how her mind works.
