FTDK you might have to swap the GPS's for life jackets for a while.

A bit wet between Ayr and Townsville!


One of my places of employment. Earlier today there was 3 metres of water over the road and 2M of water through the cattle yards in the foreground! The road makes a useful "flood strip" - but alas, not for the Bo!


Similar scene to the one above, but from wider out. Burdekin R in the foreground, Lolworth Ck in the middle ground, cattle yards, and homestead on the hill. For the history buffs, Ludwig Leichardt's "camp of the three rocks" that is mentioned in his diary is just off the trailing edge of the wingtip - under a couple of metres of water!


"See and be seen" at work! A bit crowded along the Burdekin today. Spot the chopper - make and model?


Oh yeah, for you people down south - see that grey stuff in the distance - we call that rain!

Would it be the speck just behind your wing and up a bit?
My guess, from the oh so sh!tty quality/pixellation...
Hughes 500?

I think I'm probably wrong, but it's an attempt...

Forky, the interesting thing is that all that water going over the Burdekin Dam, is only considered to be "moderate" flooding, .

morno, at Ayr/Home Hill that is true. If you look at the pic of the rail/road bridge between those towns, the Burdekin has been known to break its banks there on many occassions. I think the difference is that the Bowen R, which comes in below the Burdekin Dam is not in flood.

Different story upstream of the dam, where the flood level is second only to the BIG one in 1946.

Geez Ratso, got lots of pics but there is a limit to how much interest one can wring out of the "water, water everywhere" theme! I think I have posted the best of them.

Mrs Forkie took this one - she thinks its pretty cool!

What a top thread...! Thought it was about time I made a contribution now that I think I have sorted out how to post a picture! Will have to see what I can dig out of the files!

1st one... aircraft is easy, but where?

Now you guys flying out over the flood waters ARE carrying life jackets as required for overwater flight right?

I seem to recall the pilot of the 210 that ditched in 2 feet of water in Lake Eyre some years ago got into trouble for not having life jackets.
