Re: Light Plane down Bethlehem

Both occupants have succumbed to their burn injuries. Downwind takeoff will full tanks, not really a great idea.

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

hot damn... i just drooled all over my keyboard... Those rank #2 on my personal list behind the Commanders (I have to put the G450/G550 in third place, purely from a funding perspective)

Just for you 87J, sorry but it is only a 650B, but it is in your town just for a bonus.
That's just peachy! Hasn't Carenado made a Commander as well?

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

Its just absolutely heartbreaking to see JRA & JRB in the state they're in, I spent lots of hours in them back in the late 80's and early 90's chasing CB's around the Eastern Free State with the weather modification guys.

Oh absolutely!! Carl and I are both Commander freaks... The MOST underrated light twin-turbine ever made! I just read an article on the TwinCommander website about the ferry flight of ZS-MWT from Yukon to Jozi... Here it is: Flightlevels Online http://flightlevelsonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/0...

I made a quick stop at Lanseria around midday and caught some of the, I guess, late-leavers of the BRICS summit.

Re: Moré / Hoezit / Morning / Hosh Pagamies ... 2018

The bigger clusterf*ck is that the council dramatically increased the cost of water, to the point where my usage has come down yet my bill has tripled... So you think they'll bring the cost down when our water situation is sorted out? Never in a gzillion years! thieves and scumsuckers the whole lot ...

Re: Seen at FALA (Lanseria)

Today at midday the light was a bit harsh despite it being winter. Anyway needed to see the new Piper M600 as sales guys at Piper call it. Not much difference to older Meridians on the outside but it got an extra 100hp under the hood. N600EU Piper PA-46-600TP https://farm5.staticflickr.com/4217/356...

Re: Video from inside Convair Wonderboom Incident

I have some opinions on the crash but not really wanting to get into it in too much detail on a forum. Bottom line, I think he should have put the airplane down long before he even got onto a downwind leg, again, my opinion.

Morning folks. Seems I end up chatting to most of you via the WA group lately... So I'm at a serious crossroads, the premium segment is dead, this will be month 3 of no income and I have to make a decision. The volume brands seem to be the place to go and that's the idea at the moment. If I could ge...
