Thread: When flying over the Netherlands

  1. Default When flying over the Netherlands

    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!

    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!

    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.

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

    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...
