Foiling is ruining sailing

Recommended Posts

That's a hell of a lot of life raft for a single seat plane.

Looks like he's waiting to step up into the raft.

I suspect the raft is being used as a work platform and was not part of the plane's equipment.

( I suddenly have an image of the pilot in the raft holding a PLB and praying to be rescued while some cows graze about 10 feet away from him :lol:)

This is some foiling BTW:

That was some steel cujones right there. The pilot apparently used those engines to try to rescue the plane to the shallower water.

Does anyone know more about this? Were they able to get some salvage out of that plane or did it sink?

Pilot must have wanted to go Viking.  How does one say, " airport closed to jet traffic," in Danish?

The popping noise seams to be a sign of excess moisture causing a compressior stall

 

Good news this place goes dry by mid summer like clockwork

I wonder what's going through that officer's mind.  Not much, I'm guessing, since he's standing around outside without a cover and his hands are in his pockets. Maybe the Brits are not so stuffy about military bearing after all.

He probably knows that he is unemployed and no longer cares.

Yeah, if it's his jet, that is a likely career ending maneuver.

Its the farmer, wondering how he can turn it into a milking machine.
