  1. given the time these things take, and the past history of this, I would not get too excited. Better off taking up watching grass growing as a hobby. In other words, low confidence level from this observer.
  2. some bristols were converted in NZ to carry bread to the pacific islands. Last seen by on display near Hamiltom in NZ.
  3. trust the government, we are here to help you....said no one
  4. Loved mine, flew it all over NSW and Vic. Had it for 10 yrs Great aircraft if you are not in a hurry. Would have another in a shot.
  5. guys, breathing, cow fa.ts, insect emissions and worm juice all produce CO2. Do we get rid of thos too. I think if you are going to worry about all of the things that peoduce CO2 then nothing will get done. Maybe we should all live in sealed caves using co2 filters. Aircraft do very little to increase the CO2 load. Plant more trees and get over it...
  6. Absolutely. Why would we not give them a statae funeral, they died to protect us.
  7. We all have the answer, its the very studied and factual speech given by a juvenile scandinavian who seems to have major psychological issues so it must be true. Obviously the many scientists who have studied for years and kept and analysed records for generations must be wrong, after all, an iumpassioned speech to the august UN body must be believed. Lemmjings leap off cliffs because they are cfonvinced their leader knows where to go, climate conspiracy theorists seem to be doing the same thing. Remember folks, at the end of the day, FOLLOW THE MONEY, and who is making it before believ
  8. They are doing the best they can, with what little they have. Easy to sit on your computer and criticise. Have you ever faced a fire and put your life on the line. People have already died fighting these fires. Do you have any positive comments or action to assist them?
  9. I may be cynical, but when NSW (Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong) are threatened by fires, all the experts come out and try to make a name for themselves. The country people and regional people have been battling these fires for years without a lot of attention, and doing it well I might add. Yes the fires are bloody serious and yes the firies are doing brilliantly but the political grandstanding of city folk does not help. If a pollies country hobby farm, or a CEO from the city's vinyard is threatened then the calls for what can the govt do flow. The volunteers always done a magnificen
  10. agree, save the dollars and use the Zenforo site. As pointed out, most of the features were not used a lot. Consolidate the core then go for expansion again after analysis.
  11. out in the middle of nowhere, poor facilities, rotten organisation, political grandstanding... what else can I say.
  12. so what are you saying, they lie? Having made that statement, what is the true state of affairs then?
  13. Raa-Aus again shows its fantastic skills at speeding the demise of worthwhile events, ie, Temora where the entire town and aviation residents were behind the evnt, this one et5c etc. The practical support of the sport, open days and airshows, is obviously interfering with someones political/empire building ambitions. Someone else may get a guernsey and we cant have that.
  14. Part of the problem is the falling off of the "old school" Ra Aus members and pilots Fewer and fewer are building their own aircraft, Rag and tube and old style aircraft are becvoming thin on the ghround and the inquisitive, self learning mindset these aircraft encouraged are slowly disappearing. People want instant wisdom now, want all the info handed to them. Society is encouraging instant gratification so I see the general audience of this site aging. Many of the younger, and not so young pilots are buying pre built plastic fantastics and becoming GA wannabe's. (shoot me ). The sc
