|Thread: Best ever mid-air|
|I had a mid-air a few years ago at a club site, I was flying a motor glider with a 0.9 Enya in the nose, along the line of the runway. A Flair Hooligan with a large 4 stroke hit it amidship, shredded the wing & smashed the fuselage, the smaller engine was seen descending in an wide arc into the shrubbery about 40 yards away. I went back every morning for a week before I found the engine which lived to fly again.|
BUT the most comprehensive demolition of a plane I have seen (not mid air) was a brand new Aviomodelli Calypso,(Plastic fus.) with a new O.S. 61 FX, brand new receiver and servos. Took off, climbed, turned a 270 degree circuit, dived into the (v. hard rocky) ground with throttle wide open. Trashed the crankcase,tore the carb out. took a large lump out of the BACK of the cylinder head.Fuselage in about 100 pieces, wings into about forty crumpled fragments, nicad split,servos damaged I think the owner saved 2 servos. Cause - not possible to tell because of the damage.
|Thread: petitition against pay per mile please sign it effects you all|
|I have been paying 'Road Tax'for more than 45 years so I and my father paid for the pathetic, badly maintained roads in this country. Public transport where I live is virtually non-existent.Schools, health care, post offices have been centralised so that for most people a car is essential.|
Your taxes are being wasted on all sorts of bureaucracy and committees, not the roads. I can only get to the shops by car (5 miles, 10 for a supermarket.). The motorist (you) is being screwed by the Government,(you pay tax on the manufacture, purchase, maintenance and running of your car). so do not let them get away with even more taxes.(Yes I have signed). In contrast Airlines pay no tax on their fuel.
