It's wet ... damn wet .... not even the ducks are flying, look at the emu's haaaa joke. Bags are packed and we are off to Julia Creek. I was only here about two weeks ago on my way to Darwin. All these tiny communities were serviced regularly by the TAA Channel Country Service flying DC-3 and later the F-27, it was indeed a service.Anyway lets go the clock is ticking .....
lots of water on the r/w
Keeping the rain out.
Lets have a look around.
Right I'll be back here a bit later.
The Cowboys brought the NRL Trophy here too ..... good guys, hope they can win again this year.
1962 ..... yep it was wet then too.
What a nice place ....... with a welcome sign like that you cant help but stop awhile.
Raphael, if you mean my bird not beeing environemental friendly, then I'll tell you that I just overhauled it before the GAAR was starting, and the emission measurement was within gudelines for a R1380 TwinWasp P&W two row 14 Zylinder double supercharged engine. So there is no more oil or waste blowing out,...but fairly normal exhaust smoke and a reality showing effect for these normal working vantage engines.......and you can bet, all the ancient aircrafts have their own exhaust life, although they are maintained properly, even the Dart-RDa.6-Mk-514-turbo prop, your Avro is fitted with ! the different flightsim levels just hide the effects..... sorry for not being able to describe it better as my mothertongue is not English, but the GAAR committee is strictly observing all the details and abilities of the participant aircrafts,...so don't worry when you see my bird on full throttle,....no damage of anybody will occur... :-)
btw: if you'd like to see the "smoke effect" you just update your aircraft's config file....
don't know why you had to park in the grass at Normanton. Even the FS9 default airport is fitted with a (bizarre-shaped) asphalt apron. And I'm glad, because the HS.748 is much more difficult to taxi with than to fly !
I was just joking, of course, but thank you for sharing with us your knowledge on these old engines with incredible names. I remember I saw your overhaul screenshots before the Rally and trust you when you say that GAAR staff are taking care that all participants' aircrafts are in good condition. I know about the effects parameters, but prefer not to activate engine smoke. I like your screenshots, so please keep posting them till the end. And as you guessed, English is also not my mother language :-)
