1) YEML (Emerald) - Thanks Capt F, I am a bit slow today. Had a late night on the piss (wedding!)
2) YBCS (Cairns)
3) YCKN (Cooktown)
4) YKMB (Karumba)
5) ???? - B*gga, that looks familiar! Somewhere on the black soil between Richmond and Julia Ck
6) YLRE (Longreach) - Thanks again Capt. Sh*t, it was a bad night!
7) YBCV - Charleville apparently (from Capt F) - one of the few aerodromes in Qld that I have never landed on
8) Woop Woop!

Dr

PS: Good pics! Must be great to have an aeroplane to fly around in!

That was too quick

Well done Capt F and FTDK. I will have to try harder or go somewhere more remote next time.

I thought you were comparing the forktailed and strutless Dr Killers, FTDK, don't tell me you have broken them both??

cheers,

Nivo

Hey there Nivo!

Yeah, the C210 was supposed to go home this weekend, but I see it is still sitting at the aerodrome.

The FTDK is minus tail-feathers at the moment - but that is in the process of being rectified.

May have to borrow Bro's Mooney if I don't get something to fly soon.

Dr

PS: C210 vs Bonanza = no contest! The Bo wins hands down!

Got these today.

It's damn hard getting a decent in-the-frame front-on airborne shot unless you have a Hercules and hang out the back of it....

The second pic is easy Nivo, but I'll keep my mouth shut and give someone else a go.

I give up!

Capt F - you're too good for me. You even beat the Dr who was trying to let someone else into the game.

cheers,

The first is near Princess Charlotte Bay in between Lockhart and Cape Melville. Most likely the bay in between Pipon Island and Flinders Island.

Sorry Nivo.

I've obviously spent far too much time scud-running around QLD.

I shall retire from the QLD competition!

Nice shots, looks like you're using a Canon?

Need to clean your lens.
