Wind conditions

I am just north of Cooma and the wind conditions on that day were horrendous - turbulent at ground level.

too many posts to scan, but I’m not sure whether it has been recorded here that the flight was an attempt to save a koala sanctuary - an “ark” of disease-free koalas. Adding to everyone’s pain.

Flags flew at half-mast for the crew throughout NSW and Australia’s capital, Canberra, including the national war memorial, the following day. A fitting response.
