Or Horrocks Pass to the highway, head south to Port Germein then back over that pass; (much tighter than Horrocks) into beautiful farming country.

all standard, in plane white, but needs new rotors and brake pads apparently, see if i can talk him down to 6k from his asking price
What is the braked towing rate for a commodore , not sure if it will handle a caravan, but I maybe mistaken, was once before, November 87 as I recall.

Went for a push bike ride on Sunday with the wife. Saw this flying around. Looks like something from a James Bond movie. Sorry for the crappy pics, couldn't get the phone to focus.

How do you licence that? As an experimental aircraft, or a PWC?
Do you need a PPL or a Skipper's licence?
Why do your pictures come up as red Xs in white squares?

My mate's got a home-built floatplave (uses a Chev 350cu in V8 with a pusher prop!); kayakers on the lakes around Port get quite nervous when he does Touch ' Go's...

I have a dream

50 years ago in Washington, those immortal words were uttered by Martin Luther King, words that help change the way people thought and acted, not just in America, but throughout the world.
