Hi Folks

Just for everyones general knowlege I have since found out what the Experimental Jet ws that was posted by me the other day. It is in fact a 3/4 replica of a Grumman Panther, built by a guy in Brisbane.

First amateur built jet in Australia!

First flight was 1st of April 2006 in Kingaroy. Found an article in the SAAA mag from Aug/Sep 2006. I understand it was a bit of a handful until some CofG issues were sorted (rumour only). But it seems to fly well fast and slow now!

Coupla shots from the Diamantina area 2 days ago.
Bilpa Morea is always about this colour, however, it is totally covered with water. It is an unusual event for this claypan.

Diamantina around Mt Leonard/Monkira.


Lake Machattie looking east.

S/W of Glengyle.

One from last year south of Betoota. Lignum/canegrass swales. The Brain.

Good Work fellas.

#1 is BHI - The home of the RFDS.
#3 is YAYE - The land of the big red rock.
#4 is self explanatory!! Plenty of beer drank there!

Any guesses on #2??

FTDK and jetstar1 are correct. It is Shute Harbour at Airlie Beach. Great place to land, grab a beer and watch all the beavers coming in from their days work in the whitsundays.
Ahhh, the memories

And Tagneah, top photo is Glenelg in SA. Departure of RWY 23 YPAD.

Central Australia

The first one looks like Coober Pedy, and the second looks like the area to the north of CooberPedy. The aerodrome is OOdnadata. The old Ghan railway line used to go through there, but the line has been torn up now. You can see where it used to be.

Anyone remember the good old days when you'd find a Flight Service Unit in a place like Oodnadatta?

Bushy,
Correct on #2 and #3.
Taken from outside the FS building. It is all looking very decrepit.
Fairly wild fuel bowser setup.
