    On our last cruise we were on the way to Alaska, at the first stop 2 sea planes crashed into each other. On board were 16 people from our cruise ship and unfortunately 5 were killed.

    A ten seater sea plane landed at the same time and was above a 6 seater plane I believe.

    Terrible.

    But you go ahead and make some inane joke.

    There’s not always something to get, it’s a bit like an ice cube, you can put it in a glass of lemonade or you can sit and watch it melt on a chest of draws

    Last week we treated to a number of fly pasts of the US Raptor and Aussie fighter jets at eye level if you were sitting on the surfclub veranda. ;) Various groups of 2, 4, 6 planes. Very impressive.

    When the first 2 came by somebody commented "Oh, our airforce is out today" to which someone replied "Na, that must be NZ's - we've got four planes haven't we?"

    If they were biplane then they're Kiwi

    Old saying for the RAAF, "we too large for an aero club but too small to be an air force"

    But we make a he'll of a good USAF wing :p

    Interesting Air Crash Investigation (non crash in this case tonight).

    One of your mob (CP),about 6 years ago nearly succumbed to dodgy filtered fuel.
    Aircraft landed ok in HK after both engines failed due to a refueling filter failing.

    Both pilots awarded achievement recognition/medals.
