** Guy living next door for 3 years, David Henderson.
Ex RAAF ground crew.
Licensed to fly single and twin engine Pipers.
Talked about it all the time.
Was nearly killed twice, that I know of.
1. Flying over Bass Straight at night with a load of fresh seafood, DH became
disoriented seeing the moon reflected on the surface of the sea.
Lost it & nearly crashed into the water.
2. Invited me to accompany him and his lovey ladyfriend ( Pauline) on a short, daylight trip in a twin.
I politely declined. The destination was Sydney Airport.
When I saw Pauline a few hours later, she looked white as a ghost and would not speak.
Eventually she told me what had a happened.
On approach to Sydney, DH flew straight into the wake of a big jet while at low altitude.
The twin became inverted and started to dive, she screamed her head off.
** Same address, different pilot, Italian gent who flew helicopters for the NSW police.
He drove a Lancia sedan. We chatted a lot.,
Nice enough guy - but all Italians & heli pilots are nuts.
** Friend and colleague Gary Dunn learned to fly a Cessna 172.
Strictly fair weather and in daylight, still yet to crash.
** Famous Aussie musician " Ian Moss " - I know him as a customer.
Rides a huge Indian motorbike and has learnt to fly a light single.
** I met and chatted with an Australian Mosquito pilot, we used to make those here at Bankstown.
He spoke about firing the 4 x 20mm cannons at a target range in Queensland.
I also know a woman " Molly Cribb" who helped build Mosquitos during WW2.
