Ok, I've had these bookmarked for a while and I need to clean up my mess so here they are :D

1: This looks like a scary place to land although it has it's beauty. I wonder if anyone here has landed there in real life?

2: Ever flown one of these Mike? :D

3: And another one for Mike, or Roland, is that a normal maneuver?

4: Ok not really an action photo but a wonderful machine in some nice colours too  8)

5: Ok now this is an interesting special-model, I think I read only this one was made.

6: Ok now that's also a way to drive, or a good way to use a car that's been rear-ended :D

Well, you know, we rotorheads have to respond quickly.  ::)

Gotta be quick when you're herding thousands of parts around the sky in close formation.

Hey Frank!

ad #2:
No not yet. Maybe some day. But I did work with this very tanker on a fire in Santa Maria two years ago.
They are impressive to watch.

ad #3:
Yes, this is a normal maneuver. Isn't even much of a steep turn really.

Hey Mike isn't the turn in the link #3 about the same rate of turn we do in the ship around a fire.  Best part of the fire I think.
WOW I did that!

Hello! that's a picture taken from a fake airline homepage, you can find at http://www.south-london-airlines.connectfree.co.uk/
They say it's Mallorca, but I was wondering, since it looks "familiar" to me. isn't it - even if "retouched" the airport of Saint Martin, Caribbean (I can't remember the name.... :( if I'm not wrong was juliana something)........
Any idea?

Hi, I just found a video that'll show just how low the approach really is and that at least some pictures from St. Julianne (?) Airport aren't fake at all.
I posted it in the Video-thread in this subforum.

I know I'm really behind on posting but I am reading the forum, as you can see on my online-status on the main page, but I'm trying to re-gain strength and yet again to make a project work. So if you miss my posts, lol, then don't fear it's because something happend or that I don't like it here anymore, even though it is kind-of  sad sometimes to read how nice it is to fly and not even being able to get within a km of a plane or slingwing. But you're nice people so I'm not jaleous and in fact I'm happy to read that you here relax and enjoy flying while still showing that you don't take risks on safety |:)\

Then my memory was not betraying me! I said familiar in my previous post because I spent an Easter vacation on this beach, on holiday: I was 8 yrs old, so a looooooong time ago. I remember me and my brother taking pics as fools, but I was not addicted to flight at the time, and they disappeared somewhere in the granary, with my bro's toys, when he grew up. When I ran into the picture I posted I was trying to understand if it was this airport or maybe another somewhere on earth. Yesteday, after posting, I was looking for an old photo album, to see if I could find the info, and tell the name: Princess Juliana Int'l, in the island of Saint Martin, just one pic left of the landings.... there was Air France and KLM flying there from Europe. I think that the beach was the "gate" of the rwy. if you were sitting there you could not hear anything anymore for some time, just the engine thursts, and feel all the sand moving and going to your face. it was not really relaxing for some people (who were trying to nap ie) , but my brother and I really enjoyied. And you know what? I remember that inside the terminal of the airport there was a restaurant my parents loved: where you could eat incredible lobsters (i liked better ice cream...)....who know if it still exists!!!

And Frank, no worries. we won't think anything bad/wrong if you do not post all the time, there are busy times: I think that as soon as I find a job (what I'm doing lately) I won't have an average of 10 posts everyday anymore!   :( :(  And I do not think it depends from us, the fact of you being jealous or not. you're not a jealous person. Period. but you'll see: I'm used to think that if you long for something so bad, at the end you have it. it's a kind of law, I think. the secret is positive attitude.................gosh, I sound a little bit "new age" rubbish......but it's true. I could see it several times in my life....have a nice day!!!

How about one of these boys? This is what I get to see when flying around....

whoops!!
The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a good bowel movement. The night carrier landing is one of the few opportunities in life to experience all three at the same time. - Unknown
