  1. Having driven across the Nullarbor plain 4 times, it certainly seems to go on for ever, and its a fight sometimes to stay alert. Dodging large road trains can make life interesting at times.

  2. An Englishman, a Scotsman and country bumpkin from outside Dublin found themselves in a pub with no other guests. The Englishman stepped forward and said, "Hello! I'm George, born on St. George’s Day, so my parents called me George after the Patron Saint of England!" "That's uncanny, said the Scotsman, "my name is Andrew, and mine named me on St Andrew's Day, too! The face of the farmer from Ireland lit up and said, "Heaven above! Amazing! Guess what...!" Before he could answer, they both said, "Don't tell, it's Patrick, right?" "No, he answered, it's Pancake."

  3. At 10.31 am, on 30 June 1956, TWA & UAL airliners collided mid-air over the Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA, & crashed into the Canyon. All 128 people on the airliners perished. At the time, it was the worst aircraft accident in the USA. It shocked the nation & the world. It led to the eventual radical improvement in ATC through changed procedures, new technology & more personnel. Hope this video helps us to fly even more safely.

  4. Three men are stranded on an island. They are close to starvation, when a Native Tribe finds them and takes them back to their camp. The leader says:" Go in a jungle and bring back a fruit, then we will let you live". They go out looking for fruits, the first guy comes back with a peach. The leader says:" Now take the peach and shove it up your ass, if you laugh, we will kill you." He attempts it but has to laugh so they cut his head off. The second man appears back from his trip with a grape. The leader gives him the same instructions, but the second guy doesn't seem to have any

  5. The history of aviation in Scotland is basically the history of the Scottish Aviation company at Prestwick Airport before, during & after WW2. It is both inspirational & sad. I found it absolutely fascinating - I hope you do to. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  8. In 1945 the Second World War a soldier was asked by the regimental medical orderly when he had last had sex with a woman. He replied 1943 sir. The orderly was surprised and said that was a long time ago. The soldier looked at his watch and said well it is only 20.45 now sir.

  9. In this 6th & final video covering airstrips in Papua New Guinea (PNG) for which freeware scenery is available in MSFS, we look at the top 5 major airports & include their aerodrome charts. We take the legendary Ford Trimotor as we do a circuit around each of the 5 airports. See if you can guess the movie at the end! Hope you enjoy. Cheers. https://youtu.be/CfT3dX7lUR0?si=h5dWiaJQ21e-C6Nx

In this 4th video in the Papua New Guinea (PNG) freeware scenery series, we look at more mountain strips for which there is nice freeware scenery available in MSFS, plus provide real-life footage of landings at these airstrips, & descriptions of 2 associated real-life accidents. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  14. You guys using names in this thread makes things tough, technically a name is not a word in word association. Inter-space, It is the space left between two graves to allow for maintenance and access to the graves. The width of the inter-space varies depending on the cemetery’s regulations and the type of burial. In some cases, it can be as narrow as 6 inches.

  15. Would you have done it? I would like to think so. Like any good pilot he had his own personal minimums but from the story one could tell he really wanted to help. Good on him. This was a great story Frank, thanks for bringing it to us.

  17. Here's a topical one for you all: A man with suspected Corona virus is lying in a hospital bed with a face mask on waiting to be seen. A trainee nurse comes to give the man a bed bath. The man asks “Are my testicles black?" The nurse replies “I'm here to give you a bed bath" The man asks again slightly more agitated this time “Ok, but can you look to see if my testicles are black?” The nurse replies “Sir I'm only supposed to give you a bed bath upper body and feet" The man rather breathless this time manages to ask one more time, “Please, are my testicles bla

  18. Can't go wrong with three engines. You never disappoint Frank, thanks for bringing this information into my brain. One of my favorite movies as a ten year old kid was Where Eagles Dare(1968) with Clint Eastwood, I think my first blip of wanting to fly was watching the Ju-52 flying in the snow covered mountains during the closing credits. In Panavision no less. That plane, I believe was the same one that crashed in Switzerland in 2018. As a side note, the movie used T-6's for German fighters. When will they stop lying to us kids.

  19. Come see how the Allies, mainly the USA, supplied China to fight the invading Japanese in WW2. The airlift supply route involved hazardous flying over the SE tail-end of the Himalayas, hence the name "The Hump". The job was done but not without significant loss of personnel and aircraft. At the time, it was the largest airlift operation in history. Enjoy not only the history but also the flying and scenery as well. Hope you do enjoy. Cheers.

  20. If they don't like anything flight sim related than why watch the videos or even talk about them. Sounds like they have the problem and at the least deserve this...

  21. When I woke this morning, my wife was standing in the kitchen looking sexy in her nightie, and preparing my usual soft-boiled eggs and toast for breakfast. As I walked in she turned to me and said "You've got to make love to me this very moment!" We went at it, there and then on the kitchen table. Afterwards she said "Thanks" pulled down her nightie and returned to the stove. "How come you're so horny this morning" I said. "I'm not" she replied "The egg timer's broken".

  26. I have stayed with win10 for a few reasons but I know of others that have upgraded and had no problems with their flight sim MSFS, if you're still using FSX then I can help you because I don't know of anyone using it in Win11. If you are now in MSFS I did find this using Bing, Windows 11 compatibility with flight simulation software and add-ons is a topic of interest for many aviation enthusiasts. Let’s delve into the details: Microsoft Flight Simulator (MSFS): MSFS runs normally on Windows 11, and there isn’t a separate version specifically for this OS1.

  27. Thanks Brett. I strongly agree with you. When learning to fly, and when undergoing flight reviews, and in the official documentation, “see and avoid” or “ see and be seen” is so strongly emphasised when flying VFR, but YouTubers can fill their cockpits with cameras and fly VFR while talking to their cameras, and the authorities say and do nothing! They are probably waiting for more YouTuber accidents! Cheers.

  28. Thanks Brett. There is so much history behind your 2nd para, but it would have made my video too long. Another aspect was that civil and military ATC were forced to coordinate after years of bickering. Cheers

  33. In this series of videos we will review most of the available freeware airstrips in Papua New Guinea (PNG). The Part 1 video covered the first 5 highest airstrips. This Part 2 video covers the second 5 highest strips & provides hints for shortfield takeoffs & landings, so necessary in many of PNG's challenging bush/backcountry strips, high in mountains, low in valleys, often short & sloping with difficult approaches & limited or no go-arounds. Come see how I go in a Cessna 152 & then give them a go yourself. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  35. I really enjoyed researching & making this one, so come with me in the beaut legendary DHC-2 Beaver to check-out the Wrangell - St Elias National Park & Preserve in South East Alaska. With record-setting size, glaciers & mountains, you will love the absolutely amazing scenery. Thanks to Wrangell Mountain Air for the inspiration. Hope you enjoy. Cheers.

  36. Hi Werner and welcome to the forums here at Mutleys Hangar. It would be nice to get our own faces inside the plane, I'm sure it could be done but it would take some fancy Three-D work. Good luck.

  41. A lot of things went wrong on that one, sad state of affairs. Must have been tough on the pilots emotionally since they survived, can't begin to imagine it. Was that a typo, at 0:55, of the word passengers (passendes) or is that a spelling of one of the languages in PNG, in Tok Pisin the spelling would have been 'Pasindia' but I'm sure there are many different dialects spoke there. Thanks for the look at this particular accident Frank, we all can learn a bunch from them. The fact that with feathering they might have been able to glide to Madang was an eye opener.
