    Come on Muffer, for aeronautical illiterates like me, what are those aeroplanes. They all seem to look the same to me. I can tell the difference between a Chinook and an Iroquois and a twin-pioneer after having flown in them! And the Herc of course

    The first one looks like an Avenger and that is what Jim would seem to allude to in his post following.

    Well those Spitties got put on the backburner with the bushfire problems in OZ.

    But now the water bombers are all serviced and parked up ready for the next round.

    So it's back to the Warbirds, one had its engine runup this week just gone, should be cutting air very shortly.....the boys were tearing up the sky again this afternoon...love the sound.

    Latest update.
    Despite the dogs disease running around, work keeps going to improve the Warbirds Collection at Scone.
    Today I was up before dawn to see the latest addition arrive, this last week has seen a Maachi trainer and a Mirage sent up to add to the growing collection, these two when refurbished will move into a new display hanger hopefully finished by the end of the year.
    So for your enjoyment a few shots of both the new and old.

    Wonder why the riggers did not use a spreader bar on the Mirage so the chains are not pulling in but cradling the aircraft, just my take on it after 20 years of hire crane operating.

    Probably the same reason there's so many vids of those cranes tipping over.

    I had a boat moved by a Hiab truck recently; kid had no spreader despite being told ahead of time. Fortunately I'm well stocked with nylon load straps so could tie his slings off to the stem and stern to prevent them sliding in to the middle with predictable results.

    Some pieces of glue-lam or timber with carpet or astro turf on the inside wouldn't have been a bad idea to spread the load wider over an a/c skin either.

    The load is only on three points, the wing roots and top of fuselage have lifting points.
    The load straps are just there to look good and offer support when moving sideways.
