Re: What makes you happy today?

My last day of lockdown in Victoria, Dan sets us free at midnight. Judge Judy today, the second case, the litigants are driving her up the wall with a stupid BS case. JJ: "Byrd (bailiff), do me a favour, show them the door", your case is dismissed get out" Old Judge Judy is getting a bit grumpy lat...

Re: Anyone been in a helicopter?

Do you mean a Hughes MD500 like this? They're mad! I do admire the Eurocopter "squirrel" for their sheer capability. I remember Nine in Sydney getting theirs while Seven still "made do" with their red 206 Jetranger. It certainly raised Nine's status to me. I spoke to a guy who knows Dick Smith and ...

Re: Anyone been in a helicopter?

You're lucky. My main interests are the 206 and Huey. What was the 206 like and has the III got two rotors? Nothing well ever surpass the looks and sounds of the 206. The 206's are fantastic machines - I have to admit the 206B-3 will always be my first love! The 206B-3 JetRanger III still uses a tw...

Re: What do you drink?

Depends on my mood - peach schnapps (and I'll polish that sucker off in one sitting!), beer, bourbon or Jack Daniel's TN Whiskey - you name it, I'll drink it!

Although I'm going through a rather sad fad - I have to lose weight so I'm down to drinking water instead of soft drinks at work!

Re: Independent Petrol Stations

Independent servos are a godsend - we have a major independent called Inland Petroleum who get their fuel from Shell. iOR also are independent and import petrol but refine their own diesel, Eromanga UMF (Underground Mining Fuel), at Eromanga, 1000km west of Brisbane

A great plane that they should restart production with just two larger engines if possible. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRipxPCpyw8 Note the tail at 0.44 because it does not have reverse thrust. I agree wholeheartedly - there are still passenger versions flying today! Avro ran the RJ85 as a rep...
