Got a photo of Mako upside down in his 16 after a big boot full of right rudder gust!

Yeah, that was a really strong gust of wind, wasn't it!?

We'll get some 30mph signs -and speed-traps- set up right away on the taxiways...

Ah yes, well, IIRC we put that down to Mako thinking it was an old MiG-21 that cools the radar with alcohol. Easy thing to do round here. :o

The fact that this 'coolant' often gets drunk before landing is down to a hard-SOP which clearly states you must land with limited fuel and flammables... :P
