Keep on posting your photos Frigatebird, always find them much more interesting than the stage managed ones by the professional photographer!

Thanks Stationair, what I'd like to see (I keep hoping), are some photos of current equipment operated in my area of interest, i.e. the countries and operators and air routes of the South West Pacific, in their everyday environment. Maybe operators frown on their staff taking photos and posting them, or people are too busy to click and share.
Alliances and paintschemes change, and would like to supplement or pre-empt info from the aviation mags, on aircraft of all sizes, if interesting.

Don't stop posting them up FB. I always look forward to your photos and enjoy them the most, especially the pics from the Pacific Islands!

Perhaps one day I'll recover mine from storage to share!

Regards to you good sir!

Not something you see every day....

Quite a few dollars worth of aircraft, if you take out the Cessnas.

I tried to improve the photo quality by removing the Cessnas by photoshop, but alas...I'm too stupid to work out how to do it

My word! That second one from the right with high wings looks like a real man's aircraft and a great bush machine?

What is it?

Looks like a good replacement out your way for that .... er, thing .... what is again that you fly?

I trust you are keeping your feet dry?

Well.. Tail Wheel, it's obviously a turbine Storch. It's as plain as the nose on yer face!!

And yes, the weather is behaving itself finally. Reasonably dry out this way

I know why you fly - been along the Warrego Goat Track lately? There's a hole east of the Chinchilla Bridge you could hide a Bonanza in!

Goat track indeed...
I had the unfortunate displeasure of bashing 4 decks of cows down to Dalby saleyards not long ago. My head is still sore from hitting the roof.
I did indeed notice that big pothole of which you speak.

Orchid Beach

Too easy

The shop behind is the Compulsory Ice Cream Stop!

Sorry FB..........you will have to dig deeper!

And what have you been flying in and out of there?

Jaba gets the ice cream..
(That was quick, hadn't even finished posting)

In the old days, had to land on the beach out front, when the tide was out, as the opposition had the rights to use the strip and wouldn't let us..
