Is that shot on the tarmac at Whitsunday Airport/Shute Harbour?
I was there in '08 when there was just half of the gravel runway.

I remember back then the other caravan with the same colours, vh-ham, at hammo getting an 'end of day bath' and then followed us to shute. I think ham's floats have been removed and she's now in kunna's. I'm sure I have a shot of the 2 caravans and 5 beavers (I think) ready for bed at shute.
Great shots guys.

It's busy over Horsham



A mate sent me this pic taken Monday 13th June (I think?) at Horsham. He said the 3 distant aircraft each carried out holding patterns after the photo was taken and the closest one changed heading.

A de Havilland DH.89A Dragon Rapide and a Yak 50, outside the AOPA hangar at Bankstown. The DH.89 had just returned from a short flight.

I believe there's a select few who have seen the pics and the aftermath ones of that expedition into the '**** my pants' moment.

I have not posted these for a long time so I wonder if anyone can tell me what it was and where. The chocky frog is for getting the 'what' correct, where is rather easy. And anyone guess who?

Lots of rubber here..........


Hmmmm seems to be getting a bit further away

And this is not looking good



Ohhh dear........

Wasn't that the Race Car Driver who got behind the wheel for a bit of fun at Hamo and ended up wet?

Was it Mark Webber?

boocs and Wally are spot on, although the runway was apparently RW08/26 (approaching threshold RW08)! As Dangnammit suggests there are a lot more photos to this incident, but rumour has it that this "oh ****" moment happened after having kept the lefthand main in the air for 12 seconds!

Did you recall my post from a few years ago It was not publicised anywhere else that I know of. Kept very much under wraps.

Lets just say it was a retired V8 supercar driver and team owner, who might have been doing a video shoot for AUDI at the Hammo race week.........

Luckily BJ survived
