Paul, you are alive,
I flew in that plane as well. Neil even allowed me to land it.... It was
quite funny, I could feel him sending me mental messages to look after his
baby. He still talked to me afterwards, so I must have done ok!
Its far worse flying in Santiago de Chile, the pollution is terrible. It
seemed vertical visibility of whatever makes you feel comfortable was the
norm.... As was overexposing the neg by about 2 stops (to 'make sure'). So,
with having to navigate mountains to get out of the city area and a Quadra
that doesn't handle dense flat negative very well, I had a nervous sweaty
time, oh and of course I had to deal with the Chilean Airforce to get a
flight test while Pinochet was under house arrest in the UK.
>Neil Kindly took me flying a couple of times too in the 1980's, great fun.
>Does he still have that plane?
