Re: how to spot in south america

That is probably a bit exaggerated.... two main things to reckon with in these countries are criminals and authorities (in that order). So, check beforehand where you can spot safely, dont go to rough neighborhoods and an explanation in Spanish of your hobby will go a long way to prevent trouble wit...

Re: US should close FOL at Curaçao

It is not even military news, its nothing more then repeating the opinion of a one of Curacao's politicians, known for his anti-Dutch and socialist views. Why should anyone repeat his views here on the messageboard other than in 't Praethuys?

Re: spotting in Cuba

Forgot to mention the beautiful Lenin Park in Havana (23 02 06 43 N 82 21 45 20 W), a Mi-8, MiG-21, An-2 and An-26 can be found here.
For some reason most people forget to visit this place... and if you can check the c/ns of these aircraft!

Re: spotting in Cuba

Can confirm the DAAFAR museum in Havana has shut its doors late last year. All aircraft moved to San Antonio and are currently in storage over there. Not visible from outside, bereaving Cuba of its main aviation attraction. Also the base museum in San Antonio can not be visited nor seen from outside...

Re: Pictures of .... OV-10 Bronco

No its not on Youtube ;-) all I know is the Colombians developed the technique, so I guess its still classified. Maybe anyone knows what the minimum speed is of a Bronco???

Re: Pictures of .... OV-10 Bronco

tomh, the four-blade props were installed by March Aviation, Mesa, AZ between 2002 and 2004; most Colombian Broncos were wfu by 2002, but the US initiated an upgrade program to keep them flying. Unofficially, Colombian pilots refer to them as OV-10M, as the aircraft have been stripped down and built...

Those Thais are great, like the colours!

There is no place like St Maarten...

even in the most horrible weather conditions Maho Beach is a great place to be. Some fine tropical downpours for most of the day today, arrivals were put on hold, but a few sunny gaps to enjoy with some great action. Added some sunset shots from the rest of the week... hope you will get a bit of the...
