Flight sequence for which aircraft?

These sheets were in my uncle's logbook. They appear to be for a twin engine aircraft. Could they be for an Anson or an Oxford?

Re: WC Eric Langlois - Logbook!!!

Spent an hour reading through it last night. Now the problem is how best to use all of the data. There is so much info. I noticed that throughout his training his report as a pilot was "average" but changed to "above the average" as soon as he changed to bombers.

WC Eric Langlois - Logbook!!!

After having been told for the past few years that nobody had my uncle's logbook I visited my cousin in Adelaide a couple of weeks ago and she had found it in a box of her late parents materials. I spent about 45 minutes photographing the whole book including a letter that he had sent home two month...

I agree. Either the Annie or the Rapide and the old fossil could set up his own little airline - the North Dorset Classic Air Tours

Will you two cut out this description of flying a moth. You're making me jealous. I want to do it.

My fantasy is to have and fly a Nieuport 17 replica. They come in kit form for about $40000 (8 years ago) and have a proper rotary engine.

Re: Anzac Day 2015 - Australia & New Zealand

Max, are you going to work your way through the full list - Tigermoth, Anson, ................, Lancaster. You'll have to skip the usual transition through Wimpy and Hallibag or Stirling but I'm sure you can become licensed for the rest, in time.

Re: Anzac Day 2015 - Australia & New Zealand

We represented the remaining vets who, for various reasons, were unable to attend. An enjoyable luncheon was then had where we remembered past and present membe...
