MiG-21 touches down on Auckland roof
By Greg Waldron on September 14, 2011
Came across a great story on the Auckland Now web site of a New Zealand businessman who has mounted a Mikoyan Gurevich MiG-21 on the roof of his office building. The report says Manfred Bennet plans to put fabric around the aircraft's tail and then blow it with a fan to give the impression the aircraft is flying.
Bennet is also planning on setting up a flight simulation centre for types such as the F-16, F-111, and the F-18. He is also working on prototype helicopter that he hopes to export.
Nope, the RNZAF has never flown the F-111; I don’t think they have any strike/fighter aircraft now. I’d assume that Mr Bennet is planning to set up commercial civilian simulators as opposed to ones intended for military use.
I don’t know what “Seal Services” means, but it just sounds really really wrong.
My Barracuda was in the shop, so I was in a rented Stingray,
and it was overheating.
So I pulled into a Shell station; they said I’d blown a seal.
I said, “Fix the damn thing and leave my private life out of it, okay, pal?”
