Sometime last century, I had the Massimo Taccoli Partenavia in my FS9.1 - very pretty, shame about the fixed undercart. I think they are called Vulcanair these days. Nice to see one again, didn't know they made it to NZ.
Thanks Chris :thumbup:

More nice pics there SP. I do wish I could take a good pic.

I see that due to poor weather conditions in the Antarctic that the ice flights are on hold for the moment.
I have a mate that once did a demonstration flight of the P61 at a wings and wheels show at the Pukekohe horse race track. During the display he did a low pass and feathered one engine. Much to his consternation he couldn't restart it and had to head off smartly to Ardmore airfield. Exciting with fixed gear. Fortunately there was just 2 POB and not much fuel.
