Chinook Crash Carmarthen

The chinook is one impressive machine. The only downside is when they fly extremely low here they make my house shake. The cows are so used to it they dont bat an eyelid.

When I used to work near Wilton, they used to hide in the chalk pits on the farm and would suddenly come up out of the ground. Made me jump.
I had an Apache sneak up on me here, when I was rolling on my old 434. With the metal cab on and ear defenders,, I couldn't hear a thing, and looked round to see this thing hovering over the meadow with all its angry bits pointing at me. They must have decided ISIS don't use vintage Internationals as they let me escape.


I wonder how old this aircraft is? It could be up to 50 years of age if it was built in the first production year. These things were used by the US in the Vietnam war along little Bell Huey's. That's an amazing production run and Boeing will probably still produce them for a few years yet.


They had a bad reputation for gearbox failures in the early years, some wag called the flying death bananas .
Get them here quite lot certainly make the windows shake when they go over

VÃderstad presents the new Marathon 15/25 point for heavy clay duty

Väderstad introduces the new Marathon 15/25 tine harrow point, which provides guaranteed working depth in heavier soils. Together with the wider Marathon 25/35, the tine harrow Marathon family is now complete.

The 15/25 is a further specialization addition to the Marathon 25/35 introduced in 2018.

Dont be fooled by the smaller size, this is an extremely tough point. It has a narrow bottom of just 15 millimeters with a pointy shape, which means that it can maintain the working depth even in tough soil conditions with heavy clay. It has an even higher soil penetration ability than the Marathon 25/35, says...
