Yep. As far as I know you can share files through Yahoo Briefcase. You must be a registered user to upload them, though...

By the way, great little plane... Seems a bit "user un-friendly" with all that russian letters there...

Cheers !

Fantastic pics guys... thanks.

I've had the opportunity to pick a Yak up off the runway before...

Note to self... when doing touch and go's in a complex airplane, leave the gear down in the pattern. 

As far as the video's, you can use a place called Putfile.com to host them, then just add a link in the thread.

Ah... Never mind...

I'm in the Juan Santamaria International airport (Costa Rica) bound for Panama City. I have two hours before boarding (8:35PM.) Do you guys have any ideas on what to do in an airport terminal besides connecting to the Internet...??? There are no pretty girls around here, I guess it is because it's soooo late...

By the way, I already have three Imperial Beers in my system... And nothing happens...

Heeeeelp!!!
