Thanks for that.. they do look much clearer, maybe I shouldn't post my old faded ones. As long as it doesn't cost me.. Others must have been offended by my previously posted poor photo quality too, as they have offered similarly.. There are some classic photos of some classic old aircraft in the Aviation History and Nostalgia thread in similar condition to mine. See that most posters make the effort to tidy up, or have good modern equipment, just that some of my previous attempts at making the 'reddish' ones clearer with the program I have, haven't ended to my liking.

I wouldn't worry too much about the quality of the images, lets just get them out there where people can remember and enjoy!

If anyone has piccs at Casey Airfield in Berwick (where I did abinitio years ago), I would love to see them posted.

I totally agree with Citationjet....everyone,PLEASE,just get the piccys posted,so all can see. It doesn't matter how old or faded they are;they always bring back a lot of memories to us old blokes.

Thanks Frigatebird,you are a treasure trove of nostalgia. And i.Dingbat if you have the time,they do come up well,thanks,but the important thing is get them out of the shoebox & onto 'Home of Photos in Dunnunda'

Colonel Hatfield has several albums of photos from berwick that i plan to scan and put on the internet when i get the chance. It would be nice to see any other pictures that people might have too. When did you fly at berwick Citationjet?

Based on the background in the photo of the RV's, I'd suggest somewhere near Gunnedah. Close?

Afternoon thunderstorm







(sorry I couldn't get these last two more lined up with each other, but if you print them out and overlap them, you get the idea.. this was a small one.)

Watched 'The Battle of Britain' movie again last night on a gift DVD. With a young Michael Caine, Suzannah York, and all the other good players. Saw the movie the first time when it was released, as an Aero Club outing to the Wintergarden theatre on the big screen at a group discount.

Met Suzannah York a couple of years later, and her husband, when they were filming 'Eliza Fraser' on Fraser Island. Had a charter in the 182 over to Eurong, and landed on the beach when the tide was out. As I came over the top, could see they were filming the 'whaleboat landing through the surf' scene, so widened out, picked a good section of beach, and landed behind the camera angles. They would have had to cut the 20th century sound out of that take. It was a beautiful day, sunny, and not much swell, so I waited and watched the filming after I dropped off my passengers. ( Island Airways were doing most of the flying for the film crews, I only got the tidbits). They would push off, row though the surf until out past the breaker line, turn around, the cameras on shore would roll, and the boat and crew would row and surf in to be captured for another Take. Flying can be repetitious, too, but is preferable to that. Met the couple when they were in a little 4 wheel drive later. Lovely actress.

Great

CRN, thanks for posting that Williamtown footage, that was really good. Over the years I must have seen a couple of dozen F111 dump and burn displays, but never one that began on the ground during a touch-and-go, that looked spectacular.

The Company offered a service for the copper miners to connect from Kieta to Honiara, then on to Brisbane with Air Pacific, in the days before the Rebellion. On the northbound connection, on the overnights, we would stay at either the Davara, Kieta Hotel, or Arovo Resort.
