Another rainy flight. 3. 4. 5. The water on the right is Woods Lake near Steppes. 6. I knew it. Before we know it we are at Interlaken strip. 7. Lake Sorrell is directly north of the strip. 8. No

This flight is done with the Carenado Cessna 152. 1. Passing back over the strip at Mount King William III 2. 3. Pump pond at Frenchman's Cap. 4. The rain has started again as we approach Lake Echo 5. Heading towards Waddamana 6. Passing over the airstrip, startling some of the livestock. 7. The airstrip takes it's name from the former hydro-electric town 11km to the north. 8. Waddamana once had a po

  4. I have been flying around Tasmania a fair bit recently visiting the OZx airports. My first flight was from Devonport to Claude Road a distance of just 30 km. 1.

  5. Having never flown the ME109 from Justflight I thought it was about time to give it a go. Went to Hanmer Springs situated in New Zealand's picturesque South Island. 1. The most numerous fighter aircraft in history with 33984 being produced. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. The very narrow u/c cause no end of problems for the 109 on the ground. Always looked very ungainly to me. 9. G'day Girls! 10. Got it down first time! 11. 10% of 109s built were lost in ground accidents, 1500 between 1939-41. 12. Even so once in the air the 109 was the most formidable of opponents with several G

Coconut Island. 2. Very tropical with all the Coconut Palms. 3. An assortment of boats at the jetty. 4. As usual I get lost so we shall head south.

  21. So tomorrow is Australia Day when we all have roast lamb for dinner, paint our faces green and yellow, wave our Aussie flags and beat the English at Cricket! The best thing of all is that we have a day off work which can't be bad. Here are a set of shots taken, one from each state of Australia with a special one from the Torres Strait Islands. Nearly all of the shots feature that great little plane from Bundaberg, the Jabiru. So here are the shots from around our great land, and have a safe and happy Australia Day wherever you are. 1. Australian Capital Territory - Can
  22. Just hanging around YMML when I came across 2 planes from my favourite airlines parked side by side. 1. HS-TKC Thai 777-3D7 which I have flown on and 9V-SKL A380-841 have not travelled on this one but I know 2 of her sisters very well . 2. SQ is my first choice flying to Thailand but my wife HATES flying so we usually go with Thai which is still an excellent way to go.
  23. FS has taken a back seat of late due to going back to work. Evenings I have been watching some old Norman Wisdom films, one of my favourite comedians. Then I came across all 21 episodes of The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin on You Tube, cannot believe it took nearly 40 years to see this hilarious comedy series.
