Right the, here's a first post for 2017. Was reading some interesting stuff on the other forum about the SAA 767's and reminded myself that I never did "spot" one :gooneybird:

But thought that this pic looked rather nice :thumbsup1:

Were you standing on your head taking those pics?

Moertoe, I'm not sure why GU's pics are posted upside down or the wrong way. They are an attachment so will have a look at the settings for that.

In the meantime I have reattached his pics in the correct orientation and also moved them to the correct topics :good:

Ah GD, I was rather confused with the size of them engines until you started to write Diesel and then I remembered. Nice one and a great pic you found there too :dance:

Quite common for the small Yachts to have the helipad in the front :yikes:
