I had a quick visit to the airport on Sunday for 5 mins and arrived in time to see something really exciting....... an F-27! Ok so its not that interesting.... but I wanted to see it t/o anyway.
But instead we had a race.. the F-27 followed the taxiway whilst we sped along side it on a country road, he was taxying too fast!! (30 mph, i take it thats not normal heh ). But anyway we had some fun with it...... I think it took off before we could get to the other side of the runway..
Shame the bushes were so high and the new fence was put up... can you get motion blur from a taxying airplane? .

Ha! I bet the pilot saw you and thought... "Oh no, we don't want anymore of Dan's stuff cluttering up the airliners.net database... We'll leg it out of here quickly, before he can get a half reasonable picture"

Oh, that would be one of those nasty baddriver rejections right?
And 30mph, that's not too fast, come back when you've tried to beat a Gulfstream IV on approach, sometimes i'm very glad that there are few cops around here
