Although don't flip me off next time this happens to you cause I am not sure if the police is really doing this as well or if the just post signs to scare people.....

LOL Good thing since I can't stand speeders, especially not the kind that weaves wildly thrue traffic etc.

Now you brought it up I finally have an excuse to post this picture :D

Can you imagine coming over a hill and seeing that chin gun pointed at you?

Well, after a loooong time, digging up the topic... Hey, very nice to see the classics. As I only knew Chicken Wings after the new website was released, I missed all the older stripes.

I cannot say anything about Chuck's landing... My first landing yesterday was terrible... I fly a Cessna 152, but has been a long time since my last flight. So... Boeing, Boeing, Boeing... Poor Cessna!!

There's a joke among aviation enthusiasts and pilots here in Brazil. People say it's a true history. Some says it's only a short story.

Once at São Paulo's airport - Congonhas, a pilot landed a Embraer E-120 Brasilia just like that - bouncing many times. The controller said: "Company 123 on the ground at 45, 46, 47, 48..."  The pilot got really mad with that. But all the others were laughing a lot!

Cheers!!
Claudio.

I can say from experience that the PC-6 is an AWESOME airplane to fly!  Wish I could get another chance to fly one.

I ain't gonna say a thing about Chuck's 'landings', other than I will admit to having "Been there... Done that."

Such landings are usually billed as "Arrivals".   ::whistle::

Hehe, I think we can all relate to this landing, Rooster. I've done a few "Chuck-Landings" myself . . . . ;D
maybe that is where the idea comes from . . .  ::thinking::

And yes, the PC-6 IS awesome! and so pleasant to work on......

"Do you think he's gonna log all of those?" ROFL :D And what a plane to select! A Pilatus PC-6 Porter Wow! I was actually thinking of asking about that after seeing video proof of it's alleged extreme dive-abilities, from the FL350 site I think.

Btw am I the only one that thinks that Chuck's 172 actually looks more like a 150/152 due to it's shortness (no offence intended at all)?

Well done once again  8)
Frank

Frank, the diving abilities of a Porter?
I have been freefalling next to one and waving to the pilot for about 15-20 seconds...if it wasn't for the prop (and lack of altitude) I could probably have climbed back in, there are plenty of Youtube films of porters and skydivers around I am sure!


...Lurker...
I don't need an engine and a prop for my Skyarrow anymore...but I do need a testpilot for it. Chuck wanna step up?...on second thought, perhaps not.

Thought they where Hellfire missiles on there ::thinking:: TOWs are tube launched. Hellfires are designed to take out TANKS! Quite ironic, one or two of them seems to have been used looking at that picture, on a speeder one assumes?
