Nashville, Tennersee, USA – SAAB 340B revisited

My first visit to Nashville. I must say I really enjoyed the place and the folk there.

Food – Serves way too large.

This SAAB 340B is destined for Darwin in NT.

Presents very well after a complete repaint. I will catch up with it again in Darwin

Another week in Vietnam (Dec 09)

Back to SSFC in Vung Tau.

This visit we audited three Eurocopter helicopters and the facility. Many improvements since last year. The folk here are truly professional, open and honest.

This next photo is info only, we didn’t audit these babies. They are built like tanks.


My first visit to Vietnam

We set off from Perth and overnighted in the airport inn at Singapore Airport. A very basic room but it breaks an otherwise long journey. Next day we made our way to Siagon. Getting our visas at Siagon airport was an interesting exercise. Then off in a taxi to the mighty Mekong river to catch a ferry down to Vung Tau. The ferry we used was an old Russian hydrofoil, boy was it in a sorry state. It got us there in one piece though. A very interesting taxi/ferry ride I can assure you. As we pulled into Vung Tau I was impressed by the look of the place. This was not a misplaced feeling as over the next few days we saw most of what the city had to offer.
