  1. Maybe you've seen this ad for Snickers? How many Goonies did you count?!? Cheers - Dai.
  2. Thanks to Andrew Godden, of Bluegrass Airlins, and Mutley's Hangar, of course (!), we have a new challenge - the 2012 Great Aistralian Air Rally - GAAR 2012. Starting from Cairns International, this year's GAAR takes us around Papua New Guinea and the northern section of the Barrier Reef before returning to Cooktown, just a few nautical miles from the start, 10 Flight Legs later. The first Leg, from Cairns to Pormpuraaw, looks like this (thanks to Tim Arnott's Plan-G): It's a nice afternoon at Cairns. The old DC Airways DC-3 is ready to go: Climbing out and on our way to the first waypo
  3. This month we would like shots of the DC-3 and / or variants C-47, C-53, R4D. Any situation but the more unusual the better, please take note of the rules the competition ends 23:59 31st Jan 2012. Good luck
  4. This is the last of the 10 Legs of the DCA World Rally, 2011, and takes us over the Andes, from La Rioja, Argentina (SANL) to La Serena, Chile (SCSE). The Flight Plan is IFR - flying between the LAR (LARIOJA) VOR at La Rioja and the TOY (TONGOY) VOR, south of Las Tacas (SCQT), before heading north east towards La Serena (SCSE). Here's the Flight Plan: Gear going up after take off from runway 03: Turning at 'Ghost Lake' - Lago Fantasmas: Picking up the LAS VOR as we return over La Rioja: Leaving the 236 degree radial from LAS and turning to TOY VOR: Highest point on the roof of t
  5. The penultimate Leg of the DCA Rally starts above the Arctic Circle at Bettles (PABT) and takes us to the northern coast of Alaska at Oliktok Point (POLI). Here's the Flight Plan, thanks to Tim's Plan-G: The Dizzie is firing on all 28 cylinders (hope that's right!), all the heaters are blasting away, so let's go: Turning north after the climb out from Bettles: That's Wild Lake below: Turning at Anaktuvuk Pass (PAKP): After an hour of nursing the engines, trying to prevent them from completely icing up (OAT less than 20 degrees negative), here we are making the turn at Ugnu-Kupa
  6. Home ground at last for this years DCA World Rally - Cambeltown, Scotland (EGEC) to London City, England (EGLC). An early start - well, bl**dy 5.30 a.m., actually! The sun ain't up yet: From Scotland, we fly towards Carlisle - here's the first turn to TRN VOR: No sun, yet, but a nice "moon shot": Turning south at the TRN VOR: No one's up in Windermere - no SUnderlands around, either! Over the Pennines and turning at Poll Hill - POL VOR: Here are some early risers racing along the M62: Dawn coming up over Chesterfield - too far to see the twisted spire, though: Turning
  7. Well, here we go again with the DCA World Rally. This is Leg 7 - a medium length flight of 192 miles in the middle of the day, from Iloilo (RPVI) to Nonoc (RP13) in the Philippines. This is the Flight Plan from Plan-G (Thanks again, Tim): Departing Iloilo - gear going up: Turning to 111 degrees for Negros: This is Barcolod airport: The island of San Crlos: Lapu Lapu airport: This is the island of Limasawa: Making the turn at the SU NDB: Nonoc in sight - gear down: Short-ish Final: And we're on the tarmac at RP13: The screen shots make it look an uneventful fli
  8. An early start for a flight across the Alps proper - from the Mediterranean coast at Nice (a favourite GTA location), over the north of Italy and the Dolomites, past the Mont Blanc massif and the Matterhorn, a distant view of Lake Lucerne and then down the valleys to Zurich. Here we are, ready to roll: Gear going up: After a climb out over the Med, we return to LFMN before turning north east for the TOPS VOR: Passing Levaldigi: Turning north towards the SIO NDB: The nearer peak is Grand Combin, with Mont Blanc behind: And that sharp little peak is the Matterhorn (yodel-odel-a
  9. Thie 5th Leg of the DCA World Rally follows the course of the Blue Nile from Debre Marcos, near it's source in the highlands of Ethiopia, through the gorges of the Upper and Lower Catarracts, to Damazin, by the man-made Rosieres reservoir. OAT required anti-icing and altitude necessitated a lean mixture when we took off: First we had to find the Blue Nile - just a stream here: Some 30 minutes later, we were over the Upper Catarracts: Time passes - here a re the Lower Catarracts: Then the Blue Nile broadens into the Rosieres reservoir: And there's Damazin ahead: Downwind ...
  10. The challenge in this series of 10 flight legs is to understand the convoluted workings of the organiser! Like GARSA, you get a narrative for each Leg of the Rally and have to work out how to navigate correctly from start to finish. Now, I thought this Leg would be straightforward - after all, we'd just returned from Andrew's GARSA in Colombia and this Leg finished at San Luis (SKIP) just as th 4th GARSA Leg did. But I was wrong... Here we are taking off from Guillermo Leon Valencia (SKPP) - at just under 10000 feet, the old Dizzie kept stalling until I reduced the mixture to a bare minimum.
  11. The 3rd Leg of DCA's World Rally is based in the south of France - from Montpelier, passing Marseilles, up the valleys towards the Alpes Maritime to Saint Crepin. Here we are leaving Montpelier LFMT: Flying east over the wetlands of the Camargue, we turn north east at Marseille/Provence LFML: Soon we are over St Aubin LFMX: Further up the valley, we turn east at Tallard-Gap LFNA: This is Lac de Serre Poncon: Just a short way north east to Saint Crepin. Long Final: And we finish on the tarmac at LFNC: Time for flight - 71.3 minutes and 111 gallons of fuel used. Your Leg ne
