“Contrariwise,” added the one marked ‘DEE’, “if you think we’re alive, you ought to speak.” (Carroll).

There are new words now that excuse everybody. Give me the good old days of heroes and villains. the people you can bravo or hiss. There was a truth to them that all the slick credulity of today cannot touch.  (Bette Davis).

 


 

 


 

And out through the daemons arse

26 Jan

And out through the daemons arse. I have now diligently head scratched, cussed and finger counted my way through many of the ‘analysis’ made of AA QZ 8501; and, apart from a headache, an urge to scream and a dire need for large quantities of amber nectar, I find there is little ‘conclusive’ being published; […]

The McComics are coming

25 Jan

With the Bar Room Barristers (BRB). Once in while there’s a few of us get together at a convenient pub and discuss matters aeronautical (No, darts and beer have nothing to do with it, shame on you); last evening was such an occasion.  One of the topics, naturally enough was the disappearance of MH 370, […]

Zippyshare Downloads

25 Jan

Zippyshare I managed to stuff up the links for the Zippyshare downloads.  My apologies to all…. I believe they are ‘fixed’ now.  Please be careful with the Zippy share down load page; only click the ‘Download Now’ button to avoid the spam and advertising (unless you like that kind of thing)…. Sunfish, aka Sunny on […]

The Skygods are bored??

24 Jan

Comment: Being mischievous here but PAIN is generally speaking boycotting Pprune except for this thread – Norfolk Island Ditching ATSB Report – ? -which we recently brought to life again with this post:- The Skygods are bored?? Apparently the regular Skygod readers had become bored with the Merged: Senate Inquiry thread & therefore the powers to be have decided […]

Weekly wrap 19-26 Jan ’15

24 Jan

This week around the traps was surprisingly busy considering most of Canberra is still in a slumber… The 1st cab off the rank was Oz Flying with – believe it or not – an article titled – ATSB to feel PAIN over Pel-Air Investigation. That’s right PAIN actually made the news… Quote: 19 Jan 2015 […]

Simply Marvellous Horse-pooh (SMH)

24 Jan

Simply Marvellous Horse-pooh (SMH). SMH Quote: SMH: The 57-year-old is helping solve what remains the greatest aviation mystery of all time: the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370. This, all without any technical qualification (NFI in industry parlance). Doesn’t it therefore qualify (technically) as a ‘porky’? – in light of the Senate report of the […]

Continued/- 19-26 January ’15 Also this week there was a bit more on the Jabiru debacle… First was this from MMSM Steve – Jabiru Aircraft says CASA rules put Australia manufacture at risk. And today there was this from the Bundy local rag – Jabiru owner says CASA rules have damaged reputation: Quote: JABIRU Aircraft owner […]

Back in the day

24 Jan

Back in the day. The commendable last minute Hitch articles in Australian Flying are always worth the time, the last published 23/01/15 very neatly sums up the re opening of the Pel-Air investigation. The analogy of a ‘Fisher King’ wound is apt, but IMO stops just of the approaching the ‘big’ issues, for it will not only […]

The art of discreet distance

23 Jan

The art of discreet distance. I find it amazing that the public image sensibilities of those advertising on the P{p}rune website are so insensitive.  Surely censorship and ‘moderation’ of sensible posts which only ask questions being ‘moderated’ and ‘hits’ being selectively counted, to a fare thee well must raise some advertising eyebrows.  There is a […]

Forget It

23 Jan

Forget it. Your indulgence requested, I am still clumsy with the brand new ‘Blog’ and Twitter toys. P{prune looses more credibility as the Trolls and catamites of ‘vested interest’ move in.  When the Senate Inquiry ‘conversation’ was closed after severe ‘hits editing’ which failed, and was forced to accede (fold) under pressure from those with […]
