  1. Hey Kev How have you been? A little birdie tells me that you have bought an A22 Foxbat. Is that right? I am now flying nearly every weekend. If you're going to be at MKT with your Foxbat on Saturday let me know and I'll fly in to have look.. cheers Alan

      Hi Allan, Great to hear from you, I saw the Rebel at Boyds the other day, what a fantastic aircraft. I have bought a Foxbat, it's a great little aircraft. I don't know if I can make it this weekend, the wife has just had surgery and I'm playing nurse for the next couple of weeks. Will see how we go. Would love to catch up. Are you going to the Big Bloody BBQ at Coomalie next month?

    Yup, even with the bank fishing I'm doing with the Drifter at the moment the sneaky buggers will come right up to the bank, they have absolutely no fear of man at all. I'm always very aware of crocs up here but some of the people that I have seen over the past few years make me wonder. I can't believe that more haven't been taken. You have to remember that these animals have been at the top of the food chain for a very long time.

    Hey Frank, No I don't know anything about that one, I have seen a few over the years that have been shot however I don't really believe that that is the way to go. I'm not a big believer in killing an animal for no reason. I do believe that they need to be culled, as it seems to be wall to wall crocs at the moment, however it I think it should be as humanely as possibly and if the local communities can benifit that can only be for the better. Adelaide River crocs are the ones that used to make me very nervous, they would come right up beside the boat and would come right along side and I

    Frank, that is a good set of tracks, a 5 metre croc is a massive animal and I have seen several up here over the years that would have to be around 3 to 4 metresor bigger. The traditional land owners want to introduce controled hunting up here and I agree with them as the croc population has exploded over the last 10 or 15 years or so. I have had a 3 metre croc come and chew on my boat prop on an overnight trip in a billabong, lets just say I beat a hasty retreat and the beers got a flogging after that. I think a controlled cull that benefits all parties may be the answer and it will make life

    Hey Frank, Nice pics mate, I've been seeing plenty of lizards up here at the moment, it seems the every creek no matter how small has a croc in it. I was lucky enough to go for a fly along the beach around the Vernon Islands the other day and I couldn't resist a quick stop and walk along the beach. It was on of the best day's flying that I have had up here for a long time. Saw a some of thread fin Salmon busting some bait fish close to shore so I think a return trip with the fishing gear may be in order. All the best mate, Kev.

    Hey Frank, I do believe that I would be puckering quite a bit if they really were bent like that in flight.

    Got a bit of cabin fever this weekend and decided to get away for a while. Loaded up the Hornet and went wandering around the Pine Creek area South of Darwin. Got a bit cool up here as well, I do believe that it was around the 20 degree mark when I left MKT, had to wear a jumper for the first time in a few years. Fantastic weekend for flying, can't wait to head out again.

    Hi Guy's, Had planned to take the Hornet on a trip to Adelaide River Township South of Darwin this Morning to see if I could play in the thermals and wind currents generated throughout the hills to the SW of the town. Everything looked good from the ground as I left MKT but as I climbed there was the biggest bank of fog and haze that I have seen so far up here. Visibility was still within the allowed but it still makes me nervous when big and fast bits of aluminium can pop out of the haze at speed. Decided that tomorrow is another day and returned to MKT. Hope it clears through the week, I

    Hi Everyone, Finally got the Yellow Hornet back into the air today after doing quite a bit of maintenance, here's her first flight after two and a half months of sitting idle. Here's a few pics of a trip to Gunn Point approx 25nm East of Darwin. The conditions were perfect, even a little chilly, thought at one stage that I could do with a light jacket. Anyway here's a few pics.

    Love those pics Frank, and if I lived a little closer I would give my left testy for a Tablelands run with you and Frank Bunyips. :)
