That 2 bladed prop would look great in a man cave. But at $1900? Ouch!
This has a fix pitch prop. With all the stunts these RB pilots do and extreme maneuvers, it’s a modification for quick flap control. If you look at the final approach from the outside, knowing the pilot throws that lever quickly, you’ll see the flaps go from full flap to nothing from one still frame to the next
70% of fasteners is legal. That door will never sit flush. It's an old charter bird with close to 16,000 hours on it. Still a sweet flyer, though
Thanks for letting us know that it's a specially modified bird. Just so that I don't jump into an ordinary one and attempt that stunt
Great stuff as always. The German clock is a tachograph which will stamp a card and click on a red indicator at the end of a period. .
Also ….Was ist das……..
Salt and Pepper shakers?
Lone Ranger Decoder rings? (colours wrong way around though).
Go back and buy them Steve, let us know what they are.
@Omegafanman I saw those in the photo also and like Jim, I just imagined Salt and Pepper shakers! Maybe nautical lights also. Red Right Return like I learned on my Marine course in 1990. Jim, I will return and check when they re-open later in the week. Off to teach at the police academy for a few days this week. This place is on the way.
I was just showing off how good my eyes still are at 50. You should see the shitbox tin we push around, we literally need to glue extra pages in for the MEL open items.
Price is steep, call the breakers yards in the USA, they will have metal ones you can invest time into and make a beauty for your man cave cheap.
why do I get the feeling you're running Beechjets? Lol
737-400F, 747-400F, 757-200F.... Freight dog pilots have bigger family jewels than self loading freight pilots, its been medically proven
Medical? What's that?...
It's an endurance test where the crew spend eight hours with Lacy, Cinnamon a pole and scotch, then go straight to the unsexy part of the airport to fly a 747 full of unnecessary shit out of Hong Kong to wherever....
me studying the GOM for this, my next job lol
Lucky escape for crew and pax.
AI language model? Mods??
Perhaps someone is grinding your starter motor....
I, for one, welcome our new doped-silicon overlords.
Your post re the MRH-90 crash reminded me of this one in November 2006 on the HMAS Kanimbla off the coast of Fiji. Sadly, there were two fatalities on this one, a pilot and an SAS trooper.
Subsequent board of inquiry's findings here:
Yeah. Remember that well, even though it was a few years after I left the RAAF I wasn't surprised.
I was a systems engineer at ARDU involved in the clearance/certification of MAG-58 door guns (and other projects) on Blackhawks and did many flights with Army pilots. I'd flown with RAAF helo pilots many times previously and the Army pilots were just as professional, but there was a certain sense of "gung-ho mission or bust".
Did make for some exciting (butt clenching) flying around the range areas at Woomera though.
Nautical lights .... you were on the money :0)
