  1. Ukraine has a very old & strong aviation history with many airfields, manufacturers, educational institutions & museums. Come with me in the Ukraine Air Force-liveried McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Super Hornet to see some of these sights & learn their history. Let's hope that the current war is over soon & that Ukraine regains its rightful borders & place in aviation history. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.
  2. What a nice unexpected surprise! Thanks everyone. Had a great day with the family with lunch at the Pancake Parlour. Amongst other gifts, the home economist (wife!) said I could spend up to $100 on payware for MSFS. Done in about 5 minutes with Orbx and MSFS Marketplace sales!!! Cheers.
  3. Come visit the beautiful Scottish Highlands & learn about the mysterious WW2 crash that took the life of Prince George (Duke of Kent) & 13 others. Visit several WW2 airfields & seaplane bases, & learn a bit about anti-submarine underwater electric cables & early nuclear facilities. Enjoy the beautiful scenery too! Cheers.
  4. AYNZ Nadzab (Lae). Great WW2 history - see my video https://youtu.be/23oIEsTZp90 1975 - me and other engineers re-built the old WW2 strip to international standards as a gift to the newly independent PNG. Did not have my PPL then, but sat alongside pilots in a Fokker Friendship F27 to test navigation aids, airport lighting etc. So many approaches at different angles of elevation and azimuth, I got as sick as a dog! Cheers.
  5. Join me in a DC-3 to visit Heritage-Listed Felts Field in Washington State, USA. What a beaut old airfield with still existing heritage buildings & structures! See some surrounding sights as well. And have a go at a vintage aircraft & automobile quiz at the end. Sincerely hope you enjoy, because that's the aim. Cheers.
  6. Yep, as shown on the map, but they are close, hence “corner” rather than just corner in the video. Lots of literature refer to the area loosely as corner. But you are correct of course. Cheers.
  7. In this video, set in the "corner" of central Australia where 4 States/Territories meet (Northern Territory, Queensland, South Australia & New South Wales), we will land at 3 pubs, Touch & Go at 2 oil/gas fields, & overfly 5 homesteads/stations. We will also overfly one of the many Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) emergency road airstrips. Come join me in the popular 1935-1950s military pilot trainer, the North American SNJ-4, also known as the AT-6 Texan & the Harvard, used by over 40 countries. I hope you enjoy the trip. Cheers.
  8. I have had several good experiences with Scorptec, but there are lots of others including online. Cheers.
  9. Come join me in a seaplane to visit the world's oldest continuously operating seaplane base, the Como Aero Club on Lake Como, Italy. Also tour the lake and see why it is a playground for the rich and famous. Visit the town of Bellagio, the "pearl of the lake". Hope you enjoy. Cheers.
  10. Come with me to learn about the Kargil War in the Himalaya Mountains, May - July 1999, between India & Pakistan. See who won and why. See how the air war was fought. Fly in a fighter jet and a helicopter through breath-taking scenery. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.
