Terimakasih, saya penggemar baru jaket pilot dan banyak terbantu dengan forum ini. Kapan Bapak datang ke Indonesia lagi? nanti kita antar jalan jalan hehehe
Terima kasih, pasti akan dilakukan setelah Covid dan karantina.
Lebih baik beralih ke bahasa Inggris jika tidak, beberapa orang akan marah.
Jaga kesehatan, tetap sehat.

Chilly damp day in London so going out for a walk in my original WW2 Aero B6, contract 43-136 6-AF, it's just right for Autumn, Spring weather here, not cold enough for a B3 or Irvin... btw a blatant plug , just put my last original Irvin up on ebay if anyone interested. Possibly just 2 "careful ?" owners from new as I bought it from the daughter of bomber crew man in teh late 70s after he died and she was clearing out. actually not that careful as it's got a couple of old repairs and a newer one I had done years ago. We're about to downsize out of London so stuff's got to go unfortunately, and as she's a collector as well (she's a textile conservator, so loads of old costumes etc, but she's excellent at mending moth holes in knits, when she has the time...) guess who's stuff has to go.....
keep safe out there everyone
Cheers

Wow, thanks for posting pics of an original B-6. Finding one in decent shape in a wearable size rare these days. So cool!

Is this a Spanish background Ties? How is it going down south?
Hey Trevor,

despite the circumstances (you know, the pandemic and all...), we are doing pretty good here. If you consider that this is plan C for our sabbatical ((A) being in Canada right now; changed to (B) (staying a whole year in Florida and planning it for almost two years)), going to Spain with less than three months of preparation and in the middle of a global pandemic doesn't feel sooo bad after all...

The place where we live is a little bit outside of Marbella, in the US you would call it a "gated community". The City itself is deserted, as foreign tourist did not come to Andalucia this year. The beaches are pretty empty , except when Spanish families on Sundays bring the garden pavillion, bags of food and at least three generations of family members.....this is basically where Spain gets its infection rates from.

Nevertheless, Andalucia is better off then the Spanish average, and much better than for example the US or the UK. It might be safer in Germany, but only until the cold and flu season starts...

I am working from home, the kid is at school (tiny classes, strictly kept in their own class "bubbles", wearing masks all day), and the Mrs. has contact with four other women from Spanish classes.

The mountain in the back "calls" for me every day...there don't seem to be any good hiking trails available, though, at least not in our area.
Yes, I can hear you saying "Well, then start 15 clicks off the peak and walk there...piece of cake...a typical "Kandahar PE"!" ....but I am old...and lazy...

"House" beach...

If everythings runs as smoothly as it currently does, we will be here until next June...My "What jacket..." contributions will be limited to MTO...

Take care!
