Looking for something to add to your Aviation decor in your man cave or hanger office?
Check out this 3 canvas panel setup (ea panel is 24″ X 36″)
Quite the unusual aircraft and almost exclusively only found in Australia & New Zealand as an Ag Plane. It was manufactured by the Transavia Corporation from 1966 – 1993 with 118 examples built.
The common way anyone in the US or Europe would likely know about this aircraft is from 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunder Dome piloted by Jedediah (played by Bruce Spence). For the longest time I thought something this Bizarre was just made up with some real good special effects, but no its real.
Very interesting to see what people and companies will cook up when not bound by local technical Dogma.
Attractive Orange Accents keep the bag from blending in and being left behind.
Curious about aircraft ownership?
Tired of the rental fleet shenanigans?
Are you an active pilot looking to build serious hours & cross country flights?
Check out Aircraft Ownership by Mike Busch an A&P / IA. Gain knowledge from the unique perspective from in maintenance, inspections and over 8,000 flight hours.
Volume 1 covers selecting, purchasing, insuring, and maintaining an aircraft. Busch emphasizes that it is the aircraft owner—not his mechanics—who bears the regulatory responsibility for airworthiness. He discusses how to choose the right mechanic or shop and how to manage the maintenance they perform. Busch dissects the much-dreaded annual inspection, and how owners can keep it from spiraling out of control. He offers guidance about the all-important post-maintenance test flight, and how to deal with an owner’s worst nightmare: a mechanical breakdown far from home.
Additional Volume coming later this year.
The J-1B was one of those home built planes growing up that seemed to be very realistic to build. I’ve always been a fan of this plane, I think more RC models exist of this plane then the real thing.
The design was from the early 70’s & Poland
The simple but classic lines of this airplane still look good to me today.
& an interesting web pages full of pictures
In the mid 90’s I got a Plan for a RC 52″ span electric version from RCM, they went belly up years ago, Fortunately the Outerzone project in England has gathered RC plans that are no longer available where you can get a free pdf & building info.
I recently bought a few of these to store some important plans. Perfect for your homebuilt aircraft project plans or to store RC airplane plans as well.
They are offered in several colors and can expand to longer lengths.
The colors can help these storage tubes from “just blending in” making them easy to find.
