Flying variety – old and new, north and south
Thought for the day….”Success – keeping your mind awake and your desire asleep.”
“Sooner or later, those who win are those who think they can.”
Two photos from the opposite sides of the Earth….the first is a Tiger Moth aircraft seen here in Pembroke, New Zealand. This type of aircraft was designed in the 1930s by the De Havilland company, who went on to make over 8800 of them. Many pilots learnt to fly in these, and they are still popular for teaching pilots their initial tail wheel training. Typically, it had a 120hp Gypsy Moth engine, which required hand starting as there was no electrical system in the aircraft. Top speed was 140 knots.
and another photo….the lunchtime Wideroe Dash 8 aircraft arriving at Honningsvag in Artic Norway. The aircraft carries 50 passengers, and is often used in Norway on the ‘milk run’ service in northern Norway, stopping at many of the isolated towns along the coast.
ALL PHOTOS ON THIS SITE ARE AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE.
RESPECT, CONSIDERATION & FAIRNESS
