  1. I don’t normally buy helicopters, I am very excited to buy this one.
  2. How did I miss this thread? Aircraft have I flown in? In the RCAF/CAF: CC-138 Twin Otter CC-129 Dakota CC-137 (Boeing 707) CH-147 Chinook Dash 8 CC-130 E&H CH-136 Kiowa CH-135 Twin Huey CH-146 Griffon CF-104 Starfighter CF-18 Hornet CC-115 Buffalo CC-150 Polaris Vintage/Warbirds: Harvard Pitts Stearman Waco P-51D (Ross Grady) B-17G (Sentimental Journey) B-25J (Maid in the Shade) Lancaster (VRA) Airliners 707 727 737 747 767 L1011 Vickers Viscount Q400 Dash 7 Dash 8 A310 A319 A320 A220 DC-9 CR-J I knew I missed a few, how could I forget these: Cessna 150 (first solo) Cessna 172 Air Cadet Schweizer 2-33A glider
  3. Nice work on the Cyclone, and the Regina to of course. The frigates we’re actually designed and built to carry the EH-101. The hangars were initially sized to the Sea King. But the ship was designed to break apart and extend the hangar size for the EH-101. I never understood that design, you’d thing they’d have built the bigger hangar first. I served with a few guys who were involved with the EH-101 purchase (before Chretien cancelled it). I recall the day David Collenette (Minister of National Defence), stated no Sea King would fly past Jan 1, 1999.
  4. Salmon was phased out before the 1A was built. Somewhere just past the 200th airframe. So only very early -1s had salmon. And the main wheel wells were always over-painted with the underside camouflage. This was published in the build technical orders. There were some very early -1 Corsairs that had the tail wheel well left in salmon.
  5. Nice stuff! I served in 416 (Hornets) so clearly any kit in my squadrons markings is a fave of mine.
  6. Stocky was a wonderful person, a true gentleman. Nice build.
  7. Not normally my cup of tea but I’ll be grabbing one for sure.
  8. Did Kotare make any announcements on when they would be shipping pre-orders?
  9. No, the P-63 banked pointing his belly at the B-17, he completely lost situational awareness doing this. He could no longer see the B-17. The P-63 already has terrible blind spots. An aircraft overtaking a slower aircraft is responsible to keep view of that aircraft. This was totally preventable, from the planning, controlling, and the flying. And yes, I trained and I am qualified in Human Factors facilitation in military aviation. There are far too many warbird owners who should not be in the cockpit. The aviation safety net is supposed to prevent these types of accidents.
  10. It’s why it’s called a discussion group.
