that looks like time/date i was on the lake - tops at that time on the radar certainly into the FL45 range! FL50 + was the forecast, so not too far off!

no wonder the wind was a little cool........

Not a very violent thunderstorm if those Cessna's survived the exposure to it. Cessna's blow away in violent weather.

I love it when the Sigwx Chart for Aus show's CB's with a base of XXX and a top of XXX, . Too flippin high. And here's these Kiwi's getting excited over a pissy little storm, .

Grab Hercules and put together another video clip for us D.
Now who could you be......?

The sad news is that Hercules had one adventure too many and won't be making too many more videos.

Oh, and to keep things on track, what aircraft type is this?

Dunno Warbo, but I am really intrigued as to how you steer it (apart from rudder).

Don't see any stick............so my guess is an airship.

Am I close?

Too easy! It's the Holden blimp. I was lucky enough to get a ride in it when it came through a while back. Pitch is indeed controlled by a big 'trim wheel style thing' next to the pilot's seat.

Its a bit wet in N Qld!

Here's the high road bridge over the Burdekin R at Macrossan (near Charters Towers) with a bit of a "fresh" going down the river (4 metres over the bridge)! It was a couple of metres higher than this yesterday, but the weather was too crap to go flying.





Burdekin Dam



I hear that there is a bit of a water shortage down south!

Ever wondered what a dam wall looks like with 6 M of water going over the spillway?





Note the public road on the left and right of the pic - runs along the base of the dam wall! Anyone for white water rafting?


The road/rail bridge between Home Hill and Ayr.
