You're going to need more switches and dials if you're going to be going IFR.

So who was it that said we are in the middle of a Global Economic Crisis? There was another 120 to the right of frame just removed from the hangar. The back left is the wide-body 130 jobbie. Verrrry nice!

But they aren't making any money sitting cosily in a hangar.

In their defence it was 7am Sunday morning, hence why it's a little dull and the lights are on. 2 were up and away within minutes.

It's an interesting story, a company that had a Chieftain, PN68 and a couple of others, turned to choppers instead and has this fleet of 6 after only 3 years!

1 and 2 - Kerang Vic (Never been there)

3 - Dunes, Mungo National Park NSW
Yep, hit the nail on the head there Bentleg. Kerang it is and the Great Walls of China out on the eastern 'shore' of Lake Mungo.

I posted this also on the Darwin in the '80's thread, but believe that some here might appreciate this as a very much one-of in this country. I believe it was around '86 after an Air France Concord stayed overnight doing a flight around the world. We all stood out on the grass in front of the old tower (could not do that today!!) and watched as it took off followed by 2 MIRs from 75 Sqn. They then formed up & did about 3 passes over the field - all at about 500-1000ft. It then departed for SIN with a clearance to climb to FL590.
This picture is looking north and they are flying down runway 11. The final pass was from the south, right over the tower. (great days)

Mnt Sturgeon is the bump closest to the camera, with Dunkeld at the foot of the hill.

Stallie and Bevan666 correct: 8500 / 20deg OAT and some serious thermals (read bumps) - would've given right nut to be able to get higher.

[edit to add] it's the southern end - was tracking just south of hamilton to YMTG.
