I feel some of those who address me as roll4 or rod4 should check my occupation in my profile.

Air-brained

Well I guess we all know now which is cowboy's favorite air-liner. Suggestion cowboy -- why not change your forum name to Texas Connie and you could keep them guessing on the "which sex?" link for ages !! I agree on prop planes but surely the D.H.Comet is the best of all. Hi gert-rude. Yes I know Ni...

Artwork

I have seen Nige's work and can recommend it.
His caricatures -- of your friends sitting round their muralled pool ? -- are also brilliant.
Go for it !!

Air-brained

Thanks for your replies cowboy. The photo of the Cub brought nostalgic tears to my eyes remembering the days of flying for 30 shillings an hour ( the same plane now is operated by a club at £90 per hour) with no radio, just altimeter,compass and Mk. 1 eyeballs. Regarding the jokes - as I said before...

Hi Finn. Last time I flew a kite I slipped and fell in a cowpat -- sorry, for me planes are safer !! Hi cowboy. Thanks for the links, even though I am not that old I will look into them. My first plane was a Piper Cub JC3-65 ex USAF Korean war - that's as far back as I go. Hi Alison. I look forward ...

Mobile phones

Yes. If you have Vodaphone simply go to one of their centres (Algarve Shopping is convenient) and ask for a sim card, 20 euros including 15 euros of calls, and transfer it to your own phone. Then change back on your return to UK.
Other phone companies I do not know about.

Yes. There is a Jabiru available at Portimao but as I am 95 K , I can only take lightweights as passengers. C152 or C172 Rocket (241 H.P.) more practical. Interestingly prices here are similar to U.S. prices i.e same in euros here as in pounds in UK and usually no landing fees Beer 0.80 and 3 course...

Air-brained

Although I have lived in Carvoeiro for a couple of years now, I have only recently plugged into the forum. It appears to me that a lot of the members are eccentrics, nutcases,or air-brained -- so I feel quite at home !!! Before my semi-retirement I was a commercial pilot/ flying instructor and still...
