    Actually that doesn’t make any sense either, as Vulcan’s have four. LOL.

    No.

    Like you I think one engine per pilot works fine!

    That’s what I initially thought, and is pretty much my standard reaction to any odd pic these days.
    But if it is, it’s a pretty convincing one.

    Don’t know what I’ll do if I end up on the -24.
    Might have to give you a call and ask what the second lever is for. :)

    Yeah it’s almost certainly fake.

    Speaking of multi-engine non fake aircraft, I always thought the B-36 was super cool.
    And the B-47 for that matter.

    For a start the 2 outboard props on each wing are completely in sync.
    Next, Lockheed never made a 6 engine Hercules and lastly, the NZAF is still flying the "H" model Herc's originally delivered in 1965.
    So what do you think the odds are that an Air Force that is still flying 53 year old Herc's with about a million hours on them would pony up for the cost of running a 6 turboprop version ? The cost of running it would exceed the capital budget of the NZ military.
    Picture is fake

    Thanks. I’ll tell work not to bother sending me to Texas for the type rating - I’ve already got it sorted...

    Both built in surprisinlgy large numbers and with a short service life.
    For me, B52 is the king of cool, still in operation, 66 years after the first flight. Very likely to continue to be used until 2030 or beyond.

    Excellent. I love the fact you drink it with coke, like a proper scotch drinker.

    I’ll send you a bottle of Johnny Black, seeing most of you idiots on here can’t tell the difference between black and blue anyway.

    Good friend of mine has a son that flies them for the RAAF ...... I don't think he washes it .... just flies faster through the rain

    Sadly, I think I've done more hours on a C-130 than any other bus ..... the trick is to get on early and put your hammock up in the middle of the aircraft where the wing roots are, it's the most comfortable temp on the plane ...... nearly froze to death at the rear on a trip to Idaho many moons ago
