Scratches head and comes up with Mount Edward Albert or Albert Edward.

Locals well known for 'collecting' scrap copper wire and all manner of bits. Even if it is still in a working repeater, NDB, phone tower and the like.

Can't flamin' remember the name of the mountain but remember one fine day doing a couple of orbits fairly close to the summit. Purely for the hell of it of course!

Seem to remember one of the towers there but not both!
T'was back in 1992 though.

Or am I thinking of an entirely different hunk of cumulo granitis?

Since found my old charts and checked them. Realised that I really don't remember what mountain it is!

Well that is Goroka Tinny...so I guess it wasn't the repeater station I was thinking of either.

Interesting place I have been to this week!

Any suggestions as to where?

Hint! The lagoon is full of crocs - large crocs!

Another view!

Could it be

an interesting little "house" strip on a Cape York cattle station - requires a curved approach to very short final to dodge a large mango tree that encroaches on the approach path, over a crocodile infested lagoon?

Sorry, couldn't resist. Enjoyed the vids. Keep 'em coming!

That would be the one! You know your mango trees, huh?

But which Cape York cattle station?

What are you doing there? 150 KIAS?

I prefer to call it "Encouraging the crocs, roos, pigs, cattle and horses to depart the general area".

On occassions I have included deer in that list as well!
