A few random shots take this year.

If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

I wish I had found this thread long ago!  My Dad flew for a living, everything from instructing in Cubs to DC-3's.  I love everything with wings or rotors.  Beautiful pics here everyone!

Hm. Shouldn't that prop be, well, you know, turning?  :think: :whistle:

Reminds me of this: you know the trick pilots use to remember what ETOPS means, right? It actually means Extended Twin engine OPerationS, i.e. a set of rules under which commercial flights can travel over stretches of ocean with nominally two engines, involving such things as distance to nearest airfield on one engine or while gliding and such. Each type of plane falls in one of a number of classes. To help some pilots remember, the story goes that the following phrase was coined:

 Engines Turn Or Passengers Swim

That was from training for an engine failure on a twin. The instructor will cause an engine to fail and you have to firstly control the aircraft on one engine ("asymmetric flying" as it wants to yaw toward the 'dead' engine), then feather the prop on the dead engine so it creates less drag (the prop shown is in the full fine position - it would normally look 'flatter' to the airflow), then restart the dead engine.
We also did whole circuits on one engine.

It was meant to be a career change rather than a hobby. I got a Commercial Pilot License and Flight Instructor Rating but couldn't find a job at the time so I need to do a bit of revision ($$$) to get back into it.
One day... :dd:

Not a photo but I figured this is the best place for it:

Nice... in contrast, I regularly spot a Ju52 over Munich during the summer.
