Blofie2: G'Day Handswing - Our Very Own Youngnavy is on the case! :) Jul 27, 2014 10:10:53 GMT 11
handswing: Hi Blofie2. I am a retired flying instructor and have a group of ex students, ex pilots and aviation minded friends. We share aviation and other interesting emails. Do you have an email address to which I can send emails? Jul 26, 2014 12:23:48 GMT 11
Intentionally Blank: Couldn't agree more, YN, especially having just finished a handsome Parmy and Chips for lunch!!!! Jul 23, 2014 13:47:08 GMT 11 *
Youngnavy: Ha! Everybody knows spuds are essential to a balanced diet! No need to crunch salad in Amsterdam to prove chips go with anything! See the Christmas tree loading thread...there's how it should be done! Helo's are useful! Even Cobras could do it that way! :) Jul 22, 2014 9:59:37 GMT 11 *
Blofie2: Pfft! YN is just a fanatical anti-spudist. Probably prefers the quinoa and couscous they serve in his favourite Amsterdam gay bars. Jul 22, 2014 3:25:02 GMT 11 *
dav3469: Was thinking the same thing. Always a bit slow during the school breaks…. Jul 21, 2014 14:07:53 GMT 11
Dr Three_Wire: Ok, Ok. Reality strikes. It is summer, the kids are on vacation, us oldies have to entertain them and it goes quiet. For the southerners, it is the winter holidays, and it goes quiet. These things go in cycles.... Jul 21, 2014 13:49:19 GMT 11
Youngnavy: Complain about the quiet and avoid the question to hand!!! :D Rotary spud gun is implausible...unless the rotary stands for the means of vehicular levitation and the spud gun simply refers to the way potatoes get delivered? :o (rofl) Jul 21, 2014 10:35:10 GMT 11
Blofie2: Can't compete with Facebook, alas. Jul 21, 2014 7:16:30 GMT 11
Rockdropper: I can almost see the tumbleweeds rolling through this place, why so quiet..? Jul 20, 2014 19:45:04 GMT 11
Pfft! Bosun: Pfft! Jul 19, 2014 6:27:22 GMT 11
Rockdropper: In the rotary spud-gun :) Jul 17, 2014 17:03:37 GMT 11
Youngnavy: Hey Rockie, where do the fit the potatoes in the Cobras? 8D Jul 17, 2014 16:33:50 GMT 11
Intentionally Blank: Not much beats standing ten feet away from the Cat at Sunrise, Spiriting the likes of Dr3 and YN on their way..... except maybe sitting in their seat... Jul 16, 2014 15:49:16 GMT 11
Dr Three_Wire: Rocky, if you aint ben on a flight deck during Flight Ops, you ain't lived..... Jul 12, 2014 15:17:53 GMT 11
Rockdropper: Although I must admit, watching USMC Harriers flying off the Essex was pretty cool :) , didnt make the hair on the back of my neck stand up the waythe Cobras did, but still tres cool! Jul 12, 2014 9:43:56 GMT 11
Rockdropper: Hot jet exausts + kero x the manly wok of the rotors = battlefield helicopters! P-) (:)) Spartan Black and all that! Jul 12, 2014 9:42:06 GMT 11
Engines: But....hot, high speed jet exhausts plus the smell of kerosene are known to be manly, testosterone laden, and desired by all REAL men. What true warriors would not eat their own feet for a chance to spend just ten minutes on a flight deck? Jul 12, 2014 2:18:29 GMT 11
Rockdropper: Pffft! Get that panzi-jet away from the Army's carrier! ;) Jul 11, 2014 18:57:10 GMT 11
Fireops: Agreed, Engines, Sir, agreed. Jul 11, 2014 18:36:12 GMT 11
