What happened to the good old GPS?
Or, good old fashioned map reading. I know that area, and there is a BIG land mark, One strip to the north (wilpena) and one to the south (rawnsley)
It may be lack of experiance.. lets not get too harsh here. Wilpena or Rawnsly aside.. touching down 2/3rds the way down a 600m strip...? you'd think you'd maybe power up and go around? ?
Anyway atleast the only thing hurt were ego's
