Danger

When the government, most of the politicians and the regulator don't realise it bushy, the general public have even less chance.

Can't agree with you MORE 'Bushy'....Groggy....Jaba...et al...

The Pioneers of AALLL of todays LARGE aircraft operators started out filling a need with 'lightys'....Even the 'Dugong' 0perator...and with all of their very large capabilities, they are not that effective in situations like this - except where they can utilise the larger (serviceable) airports for bulk uplifts / deliveries.

Even then, the smaller types are the only ones capable of specific delivery to specific smaller locations in need - read station homesteads, smaller towns etc etc.

Both The FED & Qld Govts., should be exploring ALL available means for flood relief etc etc....and, its very simple to finance....

During the 1974 floods, myself and another pilot spent a week or so in Clermont with his C172 doing food drops to isolated homesteads and flying all around the district checking on people. My recollection is that is was all well co-ordinated through the local Copper!

The RAAF were also in town with an Iroquois, but they were busy lifting people off roofs etc.

I dumbed the cockpit photo resolution down as per Tailie's spec......Am I the only one who takes any notice off him?

Anyway what's wrong with a magnifying glass ....all you presbyopic old farts should have one handy all the time.....

Floppy........ I been there a couple of times and it just looked familiar, one VFR arrival over those hills look at the airfield was at a similar level so I had a hunch!


Bushy, Keg, Griffo and Groggy.........could not agree more. I believe the locals in their respective areas are helping out but there is capacity elsewhere.

Anyway I had a chat with a friend in Rolleston tonight and seems they need a Retard Vehicle of Aeroguard, and Dunny Paper plus some other basics. So if I get called the Dunny Paper Express by BNE CEN in the morning I know you have been reading PPRuNe .

Maybe anyone else who knows folk in the smaller towns that do not get the media coverage like Emerald should phone around and see what you can do to help. Obviously a few simple things can make a big difference.

Will hopefully have some pics tomorrow to share!

Heard a reporter say (while covering the Qld floods) that there was more land under water than N.S.W. Which I thought was stretching journalistic licence just a little toooo far. Maybe she meant Queensland has more land under water than N.S.W. has under water at this time....

Another interview with a copper had him talk about a near mid-air at Emerald because of all the light aircraft in the area. Like our local serial complainer, he probably thinks that two light aircraft in the circuit together is a collision risk, or its too noisy, and the sky is falling..
Some just love to go off all indignant, to distract from other more pressing concerns in their own fields.

All charter associated with any Qld Govt dept or utility has to go through a broker in Cairns.

SAAB 340 perhaps REX up to usual cost saving initiatives by using 50% power and over a town somewhere on their network. Taken from seat 3A I would wager.
