Hmm,

 

I'd assume he is on battery, unless Darwin has changed it only has one power station and they deliberately close it down when a cyclone is incoming to prevent electrical fires down the lines.

g'day krispy :)

 

Wow! Some of the pics I've seen make the event of a cat 2 cyclone look more like a 4 or 5 category. Hope you be fine up there Jeruselem. No doubt your power is still out.

Yes, might be until Wednesday. And there's tropical low follow it to dump more rain on us next week end.

i'm in airconditioned bliss - 27c seems very civil

:) Lucky you, I'm stuck in Jakarta, will be at least another hour, at least they have free wifi, but no one seems to understand I just need some fuel.

 

The place is a bit of a mess, that cyclone brushed here as well. I just want to leave and get this trip over with but it looks like being a long night - just as well I had plenty of sleep before I left.

 

I'm getting too old for this, going to be beyond exhausted when I get back - ah well, all income I guess...

 

Cheers

Heh, Shenzen at last, nice hotel, sleep urgently required...

 

Flying in China is...interesting... I've been intercepted twice because my flight plans were mis-filed apparently, I'm hungry, but too tired to eat, breakfast will do, then get out of here - I don't think they know what in hell they are doing but I can just leave the bird here and go home -once someone signs off for it -thus far it is my responsibility.

 

Perhaps I should just steal it :)

 

Just exhaustion talking, be back tomorrow, I'll be curled up in back, someone else can do the flying.

 

With everything else going on in my life I did not need this, but my bank account does - at least they pay on time...

 

Cheers

Yes, lots more water by the looks of it!

:) airfarce more like it, I simply lost them in some cloud, twice, they seem to not like flying in the vapour much :)

Excited to visit Asia a few months from now. Wish me luck, for I am traveling alone.

What part of Asia?

You flying a stealth airplane Chris? LOL

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-03-20/cyclone-marcus-darwin-residents-back-work-looming-threat-storm/9565912

 

Darwin needs ... another cyclone ... yeah

:)

 

 

Hardly - a Lear 24 C with those big tip tanks is anything but stealthy :)

 

I didn't have RWR on board but their radar is sub-average anyway - simply put they lost me because they don't really have much flying experience in rough weather, but I do :)

 

Cheers

So the Chinese airforce only attacks when there's no clouds then?
