This is a bit of an ott thing to do if you ask me, but it shows just how far some people will go to get "inside info".

"A $100,000 engine driven by Jet fuel"?!:eek:

What is under that cowling?

Just seen on another forum that it has a diseasal fitted, hence the Jet Fuel....but the price is a little high....

That would of course be a diesel motor?:D

Would a few minutes of video kicking a ball about be of any value to the opposition?:confused:

Where on earth is SWAD?:eek:

Skytrax again who are of course famous for loitering over people's homes then selling photos of them.

I think it's a mis-quote, more like "a $100,000 plane running on jet fuel"

I nearly fell of my chair when I clicked the link and saw the picture of the plane that is the center of all of this. This is none other than my good old workhorse TF-POP later TF-FTV from my days as a flight instructor more than ten years ago:eek: :eek: They have not even bothered with taking the logo of Flugtak Flying School off the tail! It is certainly a small world:D :D

It was sold from the school in 1998, after I stopped flying there, to an old guy who converted it for aerial photography. I´m not sure this is what that fantastic guy had in mind when he sold it!

Yeah now I think about it they most likely were just taking snapshots to flog to the fans.

Swad or Swadlincoat as it's called is a small town in Derbyshire.

That's a relief, I thought they'd invented a new country in Africa, difficult enough keeping up with the old and new names!
