Was it just me or did anyone else feel uncomfortable when that guy was dangling that camera near the intake?

The guy with he camera is a retired RAAF Wing commander ( on the 1978 WWSR team), he was the CO for the 2 guys either side of the engine who are RAAF jet engine mechanics ( apprentices on the 1978 WWSR team), the guy next to the cockpit and leaning talking to me is a current RAAF fighter Squadron Leader, Dad & I are quite comfortable in what they are doing

Yes, they are the 803 series Orph, the electric conversion works a treat, a very clean light. we are all very happy with it

Those little engines don't suck very hard at low RPM. We had similar comments about our ear defenders when we were running our engines but, honestly, there's more going on on a windy day!

Hehe, fair play, I have seen camera straps come loose before though.

'diagnosed with lung cancer metastized to the liver'.
Sadly, 'pulling through' isn't something folk do from that position.

I don't know Daniel at all, but this is desperately sad news.

A reminder to us all, perhaps, that we take good health for granted at our peril.

I had a look at his Facebollocks page to see if there was any more news and apparently 23 people like the fact that he has terminal cancer.
As a matter of fact, after a medical examination, I have been diagnosed with a lung cancer metastized to the liver.
Dalton Tolliver, Jean-louis Seront, Gina Di Bari and 23 others like this.

Which neatly summarises the sheer pointlessness of Facebollocks in my view :roll:

There is an update from the 'Longbow' jet boat team. In excess of 6500 words it says on FB :roll: Much is interesting. It mentions BBP and David Tremayne - DUO STAY GOLD. https://www.jet-hydroplane.uk/
