  1. Being a six seat squirrel it's quite a large chopper... I'm just seriously surprised and very glad at that, that it didn't beat itself to death as most choppers do.
  2. I flew over Saturday and back Sunday. Fantastic turn out - rolled the swag out under the plane and was excellent. My view from bed Sunday Morning
  3. Saturday was a fantastic day, lots of action and beaut weather! Would have been close to 15,000 people there I reckon. Not there today, but I'm sure it'll be great also, although the wind has picked up.
  4. You'll love it, my favourite country to fly over is the outback stuff. Being summer, and if you don't want to be tossed around I'd get going early... as it'll get rough and hot as the day heats up. Once you leave Emerald the Navving to Longreach is a piece of cake! Pretty much just follow the highway. Enjoy the different scenery and cattle stations you'll fly over. There's airstrips at a lot of stations if you run into dramas, or just want to drop in... buzz the strip or homestead first. Don't forget about DA with the hot climates. Check out Barky airstrip, it's huge!! (just east of
  5. Helps if you know someone there... I used to fly in there a bit, never had to much trouble with anyone but I did have some contacts which may have helped!
  6. I know this bloke quite well... I'm sure he wouldn't mind my saying it was pilot error, so you don't have to worry about the aircraft having issues. He's also decided not to fly anymore.
  7. Thanks for the update, I was, unfortunately not able to get away for the funeral but he will be forever remembered.
  8. Sorry I'm thinking of the S7 too, looks much the same!
  9. If you bounce a tail dragger a little on landing most by standers won't take a whole lot of notice... but if you bounce a tricycle on landing, eyebrows often get raised!
  10. Awesome to fly too, done a bit in one and loved it.
  11. Hang in there guys, It's tough time for those close to Ross. Let's just keep that in mind no matter how relevant something could be. I think sometimes we all get to caught up in the bad stuff with a disguise of 'to be learned from' that we miss all the good things and run the risk of criticising the person, which can be hard for close friends to hear this soon after his passing.
  12. Loosing Maj is pretty tough on everyone, particularly myself and even my wife who has never met him, but spoken to him/interacted with him via internet sources. Like many I have flown with Ross and have known him for several years. Like many also, it put the wind up me big time about flying, and if it happened to him what chance have I got - but I knew that Ross would be upset that I would even think of that. So that very day with the encouragement from my wife I went for a fly in memory of my mate, Ross. Since then I've flown to Qld in my Pacer for its annual - which Ross was hanging out
  13. This is bad, I'm trying to get a hold of someone who has more info. No success yet.
