How peaceful it is

Unread post by tanglefoot » Thu May 13, 2010 1:28 pm

A whole day without a post on the Jabi thread. Maybe someone should call customs and keep them in Bots. On second thoughts they would probably be ok with that :roll:

I think there is a good chance that they don't know where Badplaas is.

I might have to come and hide out for a while when they get back.

Just to keep things more or less on topic.

Bet the Jabi owners don't know what a REAL Jabi looks like.

Well, the Robinson owners are here to help out

I wonder if the REAL Jabi is just as sensitive on the elevator and sluggish on the ailerons as the 'copy' Jabi :?: :?:

He's talking about the big black thing in the front. The 'copy' Jabi put it at the back and called it a "rudder" :idea:

By the way, I think they moved the exhaust to the front :!:

When do they get back :?:

Might as well enjoy it while it lasts [-o< [-o<

PS: They should thank us. Without our contribution the Robbie thread would overtake the Jabi thread.

I just saw this joke (don' tthink it is a joke to be honest, probably very true).

Jabi pilots are all terminally ill and have nothing to lose
To fly is Heavenly, but to HOVER is Divine
I'm not driving fast - i'm flying low
