frigatebird, its not the Glasshouse Mts so it has to be the mountains to the east of Clermont!

Only other place in Qld that I have seen anything like that - and I have flown most of Qld.

Yep Doc. The Peak Range. On the edge of the old Queensland British Food Corporation scheme from the early '50's. We adjoined Peak Downs. Its looking great at the moment with the sorghum coming off, and the wheat making the place so green.

KingRB. Is that photo of a Chook and Green Gravel Truck DHC4 A4-164 that crashed 18 October 1978 on takeoff at Eliptamin in PNG?

What a great pic! One of the best ever posted here IMHO.

Hmmmm? Searching the database - but not coming up with anything!

BD, yeah just rolled out onto final!

Thanks FTDK. I can't take credit for snapping the picture, but I can take credit for flying it.

And admittedly, it was a little misleading! I don't think you landed on it, but you would have flown over it on your way into YBCV.

Ha! That explains it!

Have you not seen the video of the one and only time I have landed at YBCV? Nothing but white until 700' AGL on final appr.

No, I haven't! But if you link it to me, I will trade you one of me landing at the airstrip in the picture… at night…

When did you go to YBCV? One of those other photos was taken the Wx was like that. We got there, then it rained for 9 days. Runway turned to mush, Aerostar got bogged, and when the runway finally dried out enough, it set hard around the bogged plane and we had to dig it out!

Hhhmmm.....
Auburnvale, Rosevale or Mt Morris...going by the Sandalwood regrowth.
I bet C185 gets it right straight up!

Jaba has had a pretty good look at the first option, and in similar circumstances as previously mentioned.

Good to catch up with you the other day Forky!!

Count yourself lucky that you didn't turn up 2 hours earlier, or the video would have had a consistent background ending with the ear piercing wail of an IO550 forcing the prop tips to go supersonic!

The weather out this way is generally always good...but when it turns ****ty, it does so in a big way.

Well, if I knew I was going to stay an extra 8 days, I wouldn't have gotten that close either!!!

But I will end the guessing games! It's a station strip south of YBCV.

Rat....Same thing happened to me years ago when we got in just before a 5 day rain. I was following an old guy around in another Baron from another company and it didn't even hit me after we landed, offloaded pax, then he pull 3 1/4 mt blocks of wood out of the nose locker, placed at the front of each wheel, then taxied onto. It did hit me when we left a week later and the old guy pulled the Baron off his blocks, loaded pax and wood, gave me his army shovel and said "start digging son" I was about 1 hr late on that leg and had red mud from as@#ole to breakfast. After a few beers that night and the remainder of our trip together, I chewed his ear on many things that have saved my butt ever since.

Rat,
looks a bit like Boatman.
The other possibilities were Gilmore Gas Field (NW of CV, but country not timbered enough) or Mooroo, SE of CV.

185.

SO CLOSE!

I didn't think anyone would get that close!

I just looked at your location co-ords, 185. No wonder you got it!

Hey Rat,
The only other possibilities would be Wongalee, Aqua Downs Rundalua or Bendeena.
Woonoona/Clifton, Elmina and Victo are too open.
I am guessing that it is an east/west strip?
Looks like classic Nebine type Mulga country, though.
Cheers,
185.
