The owner of a newly-imported Russian Mi-2 helicopter has had his aircraft grounded at California’s Hayward Airport while the FAA looks into allegations that he flew it without an Airworthiness Certificate and without locally-required insurance documents. Officials in Oakland, California, where pilot Thierry Thys was based, asked him for the documents, but when he couldn’t produce them and later flew the Mi-2 to nearby Hayward , the FAA was notified. The pilot was not injured, and damage to the aircraft was relatively minor. The jet’s right wing tip struck the runway and started a small fire on the wing, which then started a grass fire at the airport. The aircraft suffered an unknown amount of damage. Both occupants were fatally injured, one of whom was the aircraft owner. The pilots were flying from Georgia to New Mexico, where the owner lived. The Government of Nigeria has ordered the sale of over out-of-service and abandoned aircraft from around that country. It is not known what aircraft types are involved, but since at least some of the aircraft are rumored to have been dormant for many years, warbird- and vintage-aircraft collectors are scrambling to research the matter. The reporter was riding along as part of an interview he was conducting for a story on the pilot.

My awkward sex story The middle of summer a few years back. After a fun night out, I decided to park beside a farmer’s field and partake of what I knew was going to happen. My head hanging out the window of my old VW, my date was giving me a wonderful BJ and I was thinking how could this get any better. Right then, I felt the sensation of a huge wet tongue lick the entire side of my face. Who knew cows were that interested in someone else’s extracurricular activities? Hilarious and no, I didn’t cum.

We were both laughing too hard. We never did park there again and I married her soon after. That episode’s been on the “laugh roster” ever since. We’re celebrating our 23rd anniversary this June.

Nell’aria elettrica le note di “Provaci ancora, Sim” si ionizzavano, come peraltro accadde altre Volt. Uno sparo improvviso echeggio’ nel locale, facendo volare il cappello di Biswood. Alle sue spalle, un omone fece capolino dall’uscio. Sul petto, scintillava una stella argentata. Sul capo, uno strano copricapo a forma di coppola. Imbracciava un fucile a canne mozze.

Albury (/ ˈ ɔː l b ər i /) is a major regional city in New South Wales, is located on the Hume Highway and the northern side of the Murray is the seat of local government for the council area which also bears the city’s name the City of Albury.. Albury has an urban population of 51, and is separated from its twin city in Victoria, Wodonga, by the Murray River.

Cambage in his book Notes on the Native Flora of New South Wales, Part X, the Federal Capital Territory noted that Joshua John Moore, the first settler in the region, named the area Canberry in stating that “there seems no doubt that the original was a native name, but its meaning is unknown. In , some of the older residents of the district claimed that the name was derived from the Australian Cranberry which grew abundantly in the area, noting that the local name for the plant was canberry.

History of the Australian Capital Territory Before white settlement , the area in which Canberra would eventually be constructed was seasonally inhabited by Indigenous Australians. Anthropologist Norman Tindale suggested the principal group occupying the region were the Ngunnawal people , while the Ngarigo lived immediately to the south of the ACT, the Wandandian to the east, the Walgulu also to the south, Gandangara people to the north, and Wiradjuri to the north west.

Archaeological evidence of settlement in the region includes inhabited rock shelters, rock paintings and engravings, burial places, camps and quarry sites, and stone tools and arrangements. European exploration and settlement started in the Canberra area as early as the s. The district’s change from a rural area in New South Wales to the national capital started during debates over Federation in the late 19th century. By many accounts, it was decisive in the selection of Canberra as the site in , as was a result of survey work done by the government surveyor Charles Scrivener.

The competition was boycotted by the Royal Institute of British Architects , the Institution of Civil Engineers , and their affiliated bodies throughout the British Empire, because the Minister for Home Affairs, King O’Malley insisted that the final decision was for him to make rather than an expert in city planning. O’Malley appointed a three-member board to advise him, but they could not reach unanimity.

On 25 November the board advised that it could not support Griffin’s plan in its entirety, and suggested an alternative plan of its own devising, incorporating the best features of the three place-getting designs as well as of a fourth design by H. Scott-Griffiths of Sydney, the rights to which it had purchased. It was this composite plan that was endorsed by Parliament and given formal approval by O’Malley on 10 January History of Canberra as a capital city In the government invited suggestions from the public as to the name of the future city.

Emergency services at the scene of the hot air balloon crash in the Hunter region. The Singleton Argus “The pilot decided to land at the first available landing spot,” a statement from Balloon Safaris said. All three other balloons landed safely. We were worried they would hit the barbed-wire fence running parallel to where they were flying,” he said. Once the balloon’s basket hit the ground, no one got out, Michael said. He said hot air balloon staff were talking about the strength of the winds “the whole morning”.

Their own balloon landed roughly just before the balloon carrying the severely injured passengers, he said. Locals said a number of hot air balloons tried to take off at the same time, as the wind picked up unexpectedly. A Westpac Rescue Helicopter was tasked to respond to the incident.

Pre-nineteenth century[ edit ] Indigenous Australians are believed to have lived in coastal South East Queensland for 32, years, with an estimated population between 6, and 20, individuals before white settlement. On 17 July , Flinders landed at what is now known as Woody Point , which he named “Red Cliff Point” after the red-coloured cliffs visible from the bay.

By the end of the year and the following year, the demand for passage to Australia rose considerably. Rivalry between the many shipping companies intensified as they fought, through advertisements extolling the virtues of their speedy and comfortable ships, for the lucrative new emigration trade.

No doubt risks were taken with the aim of turning a quick profit, and no doubt ships were lost. Melbourne grew into a vibrant metropolis, and trade between Melbourne and Sydney prospered. Access to coastal towns such as Port Albert, Warrnambool and Portland was quicker by ship until roads improved and the the motor vehicle dominated land transport. We should also consider the Bass Strait islands – King Island, the Furneaux Group and the Kent Group – they are listed separately and are, incidentally, part of Tasmania.

The western coast of Victoria contains, I am sure, more shipwrecks by number and tonnage than any other stretch of coast in Australia. And yet the loss of life has not been exceedingly high, with forty-nine lost with the wreck of the ship Loch Ard near Port Campbell in being the greatest, and the Children, at Childers Cove further west, with 38 lives: This is surprising low as the coastline is magnificent in its ruggedness, a fact not lost on the tourist operators who promote Victoria’s Shipwreck Coast.

For the purposes of this listing, which includes over a thousand entries, Port Phillip and its entrance, the Rip, has been separated, as has Gabo Island to the far east of the state. Westernport and Phillip Island have been included in this main list. The vessels scuttled in Bass Strait have been included in the Port Phillip listing.
