Me too, but it's not Australia.

I can see a Dragon, four Stearmans, a Harvard, a Tiger Moth, a Hornet Moth, two Leopard Moths and a Gemini.

With such a mixture of US and UK types, I'm tempted to say Canada, but the buildings don't look right, so I'll guess South Africa.

It's not there either.

Hold it chaps- COCKUP.

Australia. :ugh:

India Four Two 4th Dec 2018 16:57

WIWOL COCKUP? Surely not? :)

dook 4th Dec 2018 17:02

I'm very sorry and embarrassed. Apologies especially to you. Switch pigs in my image portfolio.

I'll withdraw it if people wish.

Keep it going, I also thought Australia.

India Four Two 4th Dec 2018 17:21

No problem, dook. We all make mistakes. After 50 years of flying, I recently tried taxiing with the chocks in place!

My first guess would be Melbourne.

dook 4th Dec 2018 17:28

Yes - it took me seven years to do something I said I would never do. Release the brakes for taxi in a Jaguar before selecting the inertial system from align to nav.

Next state up from Victoria.

The old Broadmeadow aerodrome, Newcastle?

dook 4th Dec 2018 19:01

Gentlemen, we have a winner.

Take it away Sam.

So that "Harvard" would be a CAC Wirraway then?

dook 4th Dec 2018 19:03

I tend to agree with you.

It's a challenging place for ATC

dook 4th Dec 2018 19:51

Is that because it's civil and military ?

That's one of the reasons

(I've flown into this place -- as pax -- on a sked commercial flight, a military aircraft, and a private helicopter)

And I've also just discovered that those "Stearmans" are Avro Tutors!

That makes much more sense.

dook 4th Dec 2018 20:13

Is/was the challenge in a conflict zone ?

Good spot I42.

[QUOTE=dook;10327950]Is/was the challenge in a conflict zone ?

Yup
