YEA!!!!!! Now it's my turn!

We had a Hellas General Aviation fly-in.. All the good (and bad, like me >:D) people were there!

And the airfield, Ikarus ZZZZ, the only private-owned GA airfield in Greece was a charm.

Here are some photos
It's all Greek to me!

We also had a mishap, a no-gear landing..

Felt really sorry but nobody got hurt, and the plane had minimal damage except broken prop and a fuel strain...mmmm...thingie  ::rofl:: broken..

What was actually bad was all those types rushing around and commenting like they are all above such mistakes. Anybody can say "talk-show syndrome"????

Oh well

Just spent the last 3 months living the high life in beautiful 29 Palms!  Shortly after a F-18 tried to remove the antennas from my Humvee, I decided to pony up for a camera.  Enjoy.
Don't worry, it'll buff out.

If anyone has the urge for non aviation images, just ask.  Its too bad being 10 ft behind a tank as it fires doesn't make for a good picture.  Especially when it surprised you so much you jump from the seat and bang your head on the roof...

Hey Nick,

That first pic you posted...  she looks alot like an ex-girfriend of mine.


No, not that good looking, its the broom that makes her look so familiar!  Hehe.   ::loony:: ::loony::


Lastly, I wonder where that N registered Navajo came from, and how long the owner has had it in Europe?

Roost, most of Greek pilots until recently were trained in the States. I think that in Europe you have to fly a N-reg bird if you only have a FAR licence.
Well, in Greece there is no such limitation but the benefits of having a foreign tail number are still high. That is why you see all those N-s, G-s, I-s and OK-s flying in Greece.
To try to explain, our government treats airplanes like, let's say, luxury yacht boats and assumes you must be perfectly rich, so they tax you for it, a LOT!
It's one of the four or five things that won't let Greek GA go forwards (that were exactly the kind of things we were talking at that same fly-in).

So, as long as you can find an FAA inspector to sign your logs, keeping the N-number is the thing to do.

The Navajo was a thing of beauty I must say! Pretty cool! You know, I think you guys can see it's likes everyday, but they are considered extremely exotic around here!
It's all Greek to me!

Hey Nick... Are you anywhere near Athens? My Company's Challenger 601 is flying there next week. If you are and see a Bombardier Challenger 601 with the tail number N79AN http://www.airliners.net/open.file/0577604/L/ thats one of the birds I have to keep clean.

Brian

PS as for the Navajo... Most of em' around here are freight dogs.... You need a tetanus shot to look at em'  ::rofl::

Yes.  That's why she's an Ex!   8)  To be precise, she's my ex-wife.

I will admit, I still miss my ex...  but my aim's improving!  ::rambo:: ::rambo:: ::rambo::
