Looking very relaxed there Andrew.....it can't have been taken the other night then!

Hey we were relaxed once we worked out what was going on :D

All credit to Mr Bose whose headset made it all bearable :clap:

SA227,

What are all your 737 cargo routes? And your 737's usual cruising altitude?

In NZ scheduled routes are

Auckland - Christchurch - Auckland
Auckland - Palmerston North - Auckland
Christchurch - Palmerston North - Christchurch

We also cover DHL on the Auckland - Sydney - Auckland route when they need maintenance

Cruise is normally between FL320 and FL370 dependent on weight.

Sorry SP but I can’t get into commission stuff at this time, maybe when I am retired! As per photo I work at the kitchen table, I have five kids so no spare room to set myself up. It tends to take me a lot of hours to build these, setting up at night then packing up again, I generally only get a couple of hours a night to work. A little time on weekends helps but builds can take me a long time. Take something like the F4 phantom, it’s around 60 hrs work. Even at $10 an hour, it starts to add up lol. Plus, it’s a lot of pressure to turn out something perfect for someone else, not quite sure I’m ready for that yet. Lol.

And thanks Aharon! Glad you like them. I wish I had 500! Haha. Maybe day. I manage to build about 10 a year, so in 50 years time maybe?

Do not worry. You have 5 kids meaning you have greater chance to get their help to build 3,000 models :)

Unless they tell you they prefer to build on a tree a kiddie tree house equipped with WI FI and cable tv.

Just saw new NZFF head banner and never knew that founder of NZFF forums is real life Air New Zealand ATR72-500 pilot!!

That makes TWO real life Air New Zealand ATR72-500 pilots in those NZFF forums unless you tell me there are more!!!

That made me wonder if the founder of NZFF forums flies the SAME ATR72-500 flights with the other ATR 72 pilot and NZFF forum member named Lindstrim????
