By the tie down area and the BP in the back it looks like YMOR perhaps.

I have no idea who owned it, so a wild guess is in order, and the only one I can think of is FLOPT. Thats a wild guess!

Brame,

www.warbirdz.net and Glenn Alderton took these on my behalf.

Tuesday May 1 18:15 local time. I think he was late.

So, now only one left. Most of you have flown over it probably, actually very likely.

Doc,

185, cattle yard strip on Ambo, between Longreach and Muttaburra.

Yes, 3 Deane aircraft (only one of which is still in the family), and one private hired Mooney from Sunland at YBAF.

Yes, west side of Cook, Fox Glacier to be exact. In the old days the township was called Weheka.
