A good example of the use off NVG s was in watching 'Generation Kill' , I tried a set many years ago and on a trail bike, It is a weird sensation - at first I was closing one eye to get bearings and then the open , all your turning radius's appear to be wrong, if you want to try and the experience or get the learning, put a patch over one eye and go driving down a busy street .. excuse the pun .. but that is a real eye opener.

A great follow up on the C-124 you can see why they out-lasted many and were not replaced till the C-5

For a few years now I have used "Download Helper" on Firefox.

I have no input on whether it's the greatest etc but have had no issues with it and it's fairly easy to use.

That is the C-133, a few visited Christchurch tho I never saw one .... the did put turbo props onto the 124 but again jets took over and did trials, one thing with the 'Ole Shakey' and kept it in service was simply its bulk load able to thrown in the door was hugely bigger than 133 - very comparable to Lockheed C 141 .. was not till the Galaxy come in that 124s were shunted off to the bone yards.

Off the Ground - The First To Fly
Television, 1982 (Documentary)
http://www.nzonscreen.com/title/off-the-gr...?video_ref=8109

SYNOPSIS
DIY first flyer Richard Pearse aptly leads off this three-part 1982 series on the history of aviation in New Zealand. Presented by pilot Peter Clements, the survey of the pioneers of the “birdman’s artâ€￾ covers daredevil balloonists, World War I fighter pilots, flying bishops, and frontrunners like the Walsh bros and George Bolt. A forgotten silver treasure from the archives is footage of Percy Fisher’s monoplane, filmed on a hand-cranked movie camera in the Wairarapa in 1913. The series was made for TV by veteran director Conon Fraser and the National Film Unit.
