It's wonderful to climb the liquid mountains of the sky, Behind me and before me is God and I have no fears.

Great pictures Rodney, those arn't the sort of aircraft one would expect to see at Ardmore!
Nice pic of the Qantas with the shadow on the runway!
Hi Gavin,Yeah - a bit different from AR!I do have some photos of PA28 and PA38 aircraft. Unfortunately, with only a 3xoptical zoom lens they end up being extremely hard to find [could be good for a quiz night comp if you're interested! ha ha ha]. Likewise with smaller commuter types such as light twins and heavy singles.What I really need is a new camera, 10xoptical zoom and I'd be right :-)I'll try and remember to take a couple of shots at the wn aero club later today... give you a look at what I'm flying now [not that exciting!].
That's cool, you're flying the Traumahawk now right?
Yeah, that's right. Been up a couple of times by myself. Going up with the CFI this weekend [weather permitting] in a PA28-201R. Just like the Arrow at AAC, except the fancy wing [like FOS had] and an extra 100 litres of fuel :-) plus a few other bits and pieces...It's got around 6 hours endurance [almost longer than a bladder :-) ha ha ha]. It's apparantly in excellent condition inside and out [looked good to me].
Six hours!?! that's an awful long cross country heh heh.Still I guess the extra gas would be great comfort during a diversion or a hold.
Well, we'll see if I'm allowed back in it after my flight tomorrow [if the wx is OK] :-) ha ha ha
Arrow flight went well! Off to Wanganui coming Saturday.
