When flying over the Netherlands

Recommended Posts

ATTENTION PLEASE:

 

It seems a concern has been voiced by someone in the Netherlands about the inherent danger of flying with a canoe. To address this concern FSX Canada has issued a notam to all Canadian FSX pilots to limit flying over the Netherlands to using just an airplane and no canoe! While I may disagree with this sentiment I firmly believe in respecting the beliefs of other FSX citizens throughout the world and will abide by the *one* dissenting opinion coming from somewhere in the Netherlands. As proof that I am obeying as instructed I offer photographic proof that I HAVE NOT STRAPPED A CANOE TO MY PLANE FOR MY NEXT FLIGHT!

That was an interesting response from the Netherlands in the first place. I know of one person from there has who dropped airplanes, golf carts, etc. into waterways, rivers, oceans, fairway water hazards, etc. for decades. I wonder why no one from the Netherlands ever asked that person to not fly over their house or especially their gold course, boat, and/or ship??

 

BTW: That's a great looking fuel drop tank shown attached to your plane!! I'm sure you're aware that during long distance flights the "drop tank" is often disposed or (dropped) when its' contents are exhausted. Perhaps a specific area in the Netherlands would be a good spot to dispose of your tank when you decide it is empty. ;)

Always listen carefully to a von Peerhoven! Our statements are based on years of experience & wisdom, education, being noble and pretty and punching many noses. You're dooooooooomed! :mad:

A very strange conversation indeed. Regardless, I sure like the paint on that aircraft! Canoe or not :D

:) Well Jan started it!

Thanks for liking the paint scheme though.

 

The first Camo canoe I've ever seen. :D

 

I'm sure Sears use to sell them back in the day :) I googled "camouflaged canoe" and apparently you can find all kinds of videos, pictures, and even vinyl shrink wrap kits to camo your canoe! Go figure...

I didn't start anything! It all started with Poko's/Gary's announcement to drop a canoe on my roof! :mad: I kindly advised him to stay away from Amsterdam, and especially my roof. So this is a legal matter of self defense! Honest!

Canoe? I can't even see the plane. :p -- Bob

 

If you want to know why American beer is like making love in a a canoe pm me...

 

Umm, what plane? ;)

 

Presuming the location is NOT over water....

 

Wouldn't wanna accidentally drop a canoe on the water now would we lol

 

The other day I was watching a You Tube video of an Oshkosh fly-in, a guy was taking off with a bicycle mounted to the underside of a wing?

 

Rick :cool:

 

There's one on this plane, can't you see it? Strapped to the canoe?

Can't afford a float plane base....:confused::confused: Holland is one great float plane base......

 

Holland has tons of wet airplanes in the drink! And most of those were obviously landed in the drink by Von Peerhoven and didn't come equipped with floats, bicycles, or canoes!!:p:p;)
