  1. Makes you jump in your seat when it goes wrong. I assume the camera turned upside down not the glider
  2. I hadn’t seen that shot yet. They were showing it in more level flight. That looks like an oh sh&t moment.
  3. Glad to hear both are ok. Why do the reporters use words like “plunged from the sky” , it looked more like gliding for an emergency landing than plunging. You would think they own a dictionary to check meanings of words.
  4. I’m hoping to convince the better half that flying to the dinner in2021 will be a good idea.
  5. Is that at Armidale airport? would the storms have done that last week, we copped A beating in Moonbi from it, big hail too.
  6. I think it is paint- was polished originally, some of the ADF gear, cb, hf, internal coatings all just adding up, but it does eat into payload. I was once told if you can shut the doors it will fly, but not something I want to try.
  7. My 182 has gained 79kgs from its original POH and last annual, the strangest thing was the guy who weighed it this time, did its initial weighing.
  8. Pretty poor friends to endorse such behaviour, he appeared to be playing up for the crowd. with bad results. This is where you want mates to pull you up before something stupid kills you.
  9. I was hoping there was going to be a model crash when i seen JW hobby in the top corner, not a full size job, what a waste of life and plane.😢
  10. Your part of Oz is so amazing to look at from up there. Would love to try it if we are ever allowed back to QLD. cheers clinton
  11. Would be a good one to fly the little yellow plane from a few posts back through, would get the ATC smiling
  12. Just saw reminder about postage by 25 th this morning. Walked down and sent my ballot in at lunch time. I would have missed it if I didn’t see the reminder.
  13. I watched his you tube vids over and over again before my check ride for rpl, next day I did some of my best landings ever consistently. The timing of the flare using the width of runway expansion was very useful. I should do again as they are getting untidy again.
  14. Buy or borrow a large enough paddock To land in all directions just like some of the WWII fields, takes all the hassle out of it.😁
