Congrats Steve. A friend who is a pilot also would take us on day trips in those types of planes up to Brown Brothers airstrip in Milawa - that’s a great trip when you are allowed to have passengers.

Well done Steve, now we need to get Brenton Dalby to buy a plane ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

Congrats Steve Schneider!

CONGRATULATIONS ๐ŸŽ‰ - a gifted pilot and gifted Flying Instructors @ 7.1 hrs

Here I am about 35 years back, I was very privileged to be able to look after these.

Thanks for posting these David. After maintaining these for the RAAF for almost ten years one tended to fall in love with the French lady as they were affectionately known by all who had anything to do with them from the pilots all the way down the line.
