Re: Episode #405 Qantas

The other thing to know about this QF A380 incident is that Sydney is Qantas' major maintenance center where they do most of their in-country A380 maintenance (heavy work is out-sourced to off-shore MROs). Thus it makes a LOT of sense for them to direct the aircraft to Sydney as that's a very conven...

Re: "Three Off Field Landings" Ep. #259

Yup, a Google search on registrations helped with the Miles M.57 Aerovan. Nice aircraft & well done to ScofreyJet for the quick response. I picked the Bristol Super Freighter right off because in NZ we had Bristol Freighters for ages and there's one parked at the Moorabbin Air Museum hear at YMM...

Re: AirVenture newbie looking for advice

Gotta say, I'm *SO* looking forward to getting over to Osh11 and meeting everyone. I hear it's about the people as well as the aircraft but being at an airport with more aircraft than on the entire register here in Australia, well, that popping sound will be my brain trying to reboot as it attempts ...

Re: Avalon 2011 Meetup

Not this time - we've got PCDU shirts :)

Are there any other UCAP listeners who'll be at Avalon this year? The hashtag will be #Avalon11

Cheers,

Re: Avalon 2011 Meetup

I think a PCDU/UCAP tweet up is definitely the "GO" while at Avalon. Steve & I from PCDU will be there every day and tweeting madly so we can arrange catching up at multiple times depending on our media schedules :) Steven Pam will be with Steve & I as one of our PCDU camera crew a...

Re: Episode #191

One little comment: the reporter (Ashley) in the Stearman that flipped on landing is actually a *guy* not a girl. :D Also, the person taking the ground based video of the aircraft flipping on landing was none other than Dan "Boy Wonder" Web from the Airplane Geeks podcast (or, as he's now ...

Re: Episode#189

On the Constellation front, here's a great page with information about airworthy or near-airworthy examples: http://www.conniesurvivors.com/1-airworthy.htm One of those that is airworthy is "Connie," a C121C that has been restored by the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) here ...

Re: Episode#189

re: China & Biofuels I think China has the potential to outstrip the USA and most other parts of the world when it comes to biofuel adoption. While their target of 15% by 2020 is pretty high, they have certain aspects of their culture that will assist in achieving it (if they're serious about it...

Re: Episode #185 "It's Not Right"

Hi Guys, Finally caught up with your episodes after my time in Indonesia :) In #184 & #185 you referred to the guys flying the CTs around the world. WOW. Not sure if you're aware of two other charity flights going on from down here in Australia (yes, Jack was right, there are lots of these fligh...
