    all i know is that it flew in (i was there but sadly my camera whas elsewhere, that is a rare thing for me not to have my camera on me) and it looked pretty tatty. the engine sounded very sick. aparently they have started taking it apart for a basic overhaul and keep on finding more problems with it. the estimated flying date is 2007.

    Oh man, get pictures if you can. Beg, molest, kill - just get pictures. And just kill ...even if they let you beforehand - the human population is too big as it is. Have a blast ... :laughing6: :thumbright:

    Yes, they can resize them on their own, but not within the postings. I prefer to be able to see the whole image without having to scroll all over to see the whole image. Plus, it's good netiquette to make them viewable without scrolling. That also makes the text easier to read without scrolling.

    i am happy for people to save them off here for personal use. i have yet to work out how to change the sizes. i use photoshop and someone said you can adjust the size through the link in the text.
    i am also happy to e-mail people pictures if they ask me.
