    New top toy

    You may have heard about James' new light aircraft, and here it is,



    This was taken at the Wellesbourne Airfield on July 12. And the thing is called Super Decathlon G-OCOK, apparently. Now, is that a joke or is that precisely why he got this particular model?

    Most definitely he bought it because of this... among other reasons.

    As G-OCOK is just the registration, he probably chose it himself. He's got good taste, though!

    Oh, so it's a registration thing. He'd choose that, wouldn't he?

    Having flown a light aircraft before, I am overwhelmed with jealousy. I'd sell my mother to have my own light aircraft. Congrats Captain Captain Slow!

    ^ Out of curiosity, how much does something like this sell for?

    Edit: Should have searched first... as per this link, the base price is about $150,000.

    I googled the registration and found this picture as well.



    It was taken on July 13 at Duxford. Looks like James took his girlfriend out for a romantic weekend cocking about with his new TopToy!

    ^ I didn't think the registration would be so big.

    That's outrageous!

    An old one sells for over 100,000 GBP, but his looks new ... so probably a hell of a lot more.

    This must have been the airport shopping game...

    a) Because one of those very planes recently killed extremely experienced pilot and professional badass Steve Fossett.
    b) Because for just twice the money (depending on actual cost), he could've had an EXTRA 300SR (200,000euro) and run the freaking air race circuit. +/- 10g*, 440deg/s roll rate. Definitely the Formula 1 of aerobatics... too bad May's gone with the Clio Cup of aerobatics.

    *G-suit and anti-g maneuvers sold separately.

    Don't the TG3 hate vanity plates on cars? Now May got this registration on his plane. Ok. OCOK is awesome enough.
    Super Decathlon is a sports plane. Wouldn't sailplane/glider suit James more. hehe.
