Well that was a lot of water ballast the Captain released in a vain attempt to gain altitude, should have got out the hanger first

With hindsight, the blind flying training cover for the gondola was just a little bit OTT

Having by now forgotten whether they were trying to get it in or out, the crew resort to trying to shake it all about.

(Not a caption) Thanks Kiltrash, in Sydney we're fine apart from lots of smoke. Outside of Sydney & elsewhere, there are people who've lost houses, crops, fences and a couple of lives.

See the latest BBC news about Sydney: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-australia-50722650.

BTW, congratulations, Kiltrash. You seem to be the only caption scribe who has realised that the hangar shed is actually a floating construction. This is so that it will automatically face into wind to make docking easier.

Decision time later in the week.

To Hydromet and all Australian cousins. Flew a few times BA744 into Sydney late 90's and saw at first hand how near the houses the burnt areas were. And from the Telly you have my best wishes. We were there in Aug this year and even then the locals were concerned even though the season had not yet started.

If only the Baron had taken a career in the Zeppelin branch instead of the Focker then ultra low level flight would have been acceptable
