Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Seems Lily is offloading cargo. Captain says she is over gross weight!

But seriously, hope the egg passed without any struggle!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Call sign VH-HRH is now at correct weight and clear for takeoff!

First (and so far only!) egg was passed fairly easily and I’ve not observed any more yet, although I remain vigilant, she’s such a naughty little Fokker!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Uh oh, call sign VH-HRH “Heavy” has had to make a last minute diversion to offload more unwanted freight last night!

She is acting a lot less hormonally driven than the preceding 72 hours. If she continues to lay I will be asking her doctor about maybe a hormonal implant. I’ve had it done on a cockatiel before but I don’t know if it’d be practicable on a tiny bird about a third of that size.

Stay tuned there’s bound to be more “excitement” (and boy do I hate this kind of excitement!)

Uh oh, a rejected takeoff? Head for the hangar and allow expert maintenance staff to thoroughly inspect!

For those unaware, Fokker is a storied Dutch aircraft manufacturer that produced several modern airliners. The name is endearing to aviation aficionados and provokes much double entendre humor. Some of the banter between pilots and air traffic controllers is hilarious!

A pic for Martina!!

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Oooh Scott that AN Fokker in classic Red Chevron livery is a sight that brings a tear to my eye, thank you!

For those unaware, Ansett was a premier Australian airline founded in 1936 by the formidable Reg (later Sir Reginald) Ansett, which due to a series of unfortunate events and mis-management fell into bankruptcy in 2001. Ansett was a real “family” type company, representative perhaps of a bygone era in aviation which many people still miss in the new world of low-cost, no frills air travel, and I was fortunate enough to work there for it’s last 10 years of operations. Still very proud of all the good work we did back then!

Here's a video that NEVER fails to give me goosebumps

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Thanks for that splendid Ansett video!! Gorgeous air-to-air footage captured by a highly modified aircraft with hi def cameras.

Re: Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to present....

Yes Scott it’s wonderful footage isn’t it, and it’s gotta be 20 years old by now. I still maintain we had the prettiest tail in the sky!

Laurasea, apparently the PCL (love that new three letter acronym!) lays a clutch of between two and four eggs at a time. Lilly has laid two but no more since Tuesday and it’s now Friday night, so I’m hopeful there won’t be any more. And as far as I know Lilly retains her exclusivity as the only PCL on Parrot Forums!

How is HRH PCL Lillypilly at the moment? Did she stop off-loading cargo at various opportune drop zones finally?
