Re: Brian Douglas RIP

Damn, that man was a good guy. Remember him showing me one of the 007 fields for the flightguide, and sitting there drinking tea and eating fruit scones having the chat. Real old school he read off the co-ordinates for me from a half mill map so I could find the place. He had an encyclopaedic knowle...

Re: Mircolight Crash in Mullingar

It was in the Westmeath Examiner, so hardly a state secret. Nobody beyond medical repair, and merely a Slip and Trip type affair. Anything not reported to the relevant authorities, and commented on here could be reasonably deemed as reported IMHO.

Re: Aircraft Deicing Fluid

Some great flying to be had on those really cold days. Airplanes fly much better in the cold, and if the minus 13c episodes of last year are anything to go by then a plan b for deicing is in order. Kemfast is probably the best starting point, and if you could get a concentrate that would work with a...

Re: Gulfstream emergency landing in field, Circa 1980's

Just picked up a copy of the movie, derived from this incident in Mallow. Its called "The Runway" and its more of a family movie than a top gun remake. Enjoyable none the less. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1385633/ The runway they made in the movie is perhaps more of a farm road, but had certain pote...

Re: Lake Buccaneer on Lough Derg today

Turns out your 18,000hr lake amphib high king check pilot has a famous flight school; http://www.tailwheelsetc.com/ and learned to fly out the back of his house in an 85hp Aeronca 7DC Champ. The field that was their runway was 120m long/400feet from fence to fence. House visits to places with clear ...

Re: George Curran R.I.P

Sad news last night. Tomorrow we had a plan to head to EGNS in the beloved Aiglon to show George the "local handling option". Great man to hand fly right down to minimums, and wouldn't be deterred as long as there was an airway and IAP to get him there. It is very likely that at 77, he was the oldes...
