VH-XGN

Man, it is fun to see what pops up in here!

I last flew XGN on 25 March 1990. Did a run picking up ballot boxes after a State (I think) election. YBTL-YIGM-YGNV-YKID-YEIN-YFSA-YBMA-YBTL

Landed at YIGM with the airstrip completely surrounded by floodwater. No ballot boxes to pick up there!

Had a bird strike taking off from YIGM - thwack! Flew to Greenvale with the gear down - only sign was blood, guts and a few feathers on the retractable step!

Last I heard of XGN it was sitting on a station strip south of Hughenden - with its tail in the air - and a collapsed nose wheel.

Good to see the old girl again!

For your number 3, the one with XGN in it, it could be a number of outback SA or Qld strips. I'll go for Innamincka Homestead YINN (the strip 3 miles north of town, not the townsite strip).

Good old MZV. Thats what happens when you pull both the mixtures on base, lucky it was low tide, no names now!.
Amazing how quick both those engines got pulled off in order for it to be lifted.
Where is MZV now? still in DN?

Jawz; Would number 3 be at Mungerannie before the strip had major work done on it?

Ultralights,
1. Looks like a Saddler Vampire wing.
2. Somewhere south of Sydney heading West?

Cheers

Edited to ask:

Bentleg,
IS that VH-CGN on the previous page? If so I have about 60 hours in that sucker, flying up the east coast, across to Dawin, down the centre and back to Sydney.

Cheers
CB

Sure is. Taken late 2001 on a similar trip but in the reverse direction.

A Lear 31 over Manhattan.

Was that you flying or a friends photo? Nice pic anyway.
(Could also be a Lear 28 or 29 if you are not posing an obvious question to the un-Lear-educated masses).

Cheers dude.
Bill.
