Yep, she's been at Tooradin for several years now operating as many as 20 Joy Flights a day. There was 2 there for a while however UVB is apparently the sweet one to fly.

This will test you out!

I would be surprised if there are not at least a couple of people in here that have been to this top spot - NOT!

Same place - one piccy from the air



and one on the ground.



1) Specific geographical area?
2) Nearest town?
3) Exact location?

Dr

"Not sure where, NW QLD I guess"

Geez, there's always one isn't there! Giv'em an inch and they want to take a mile.

NW Qld? That's a bloody big area J430. Note that I have now changed "general geographical area" to "specific geographical area"!

but I reckon it was a good 15 years ago.....or more"

?? based on what? The old truck? The "old" aeroplane? You sure as hell can't see my lack of grey hair from there!

The shorthorn cattle in the yard? Your eyesight isn't that good!

Right part of the world - but north of Lake Nash - and the other side of the border.

What's that part of the world called = answer (1).

Damn Dr. I've got better things to do.

Somewhere on the Barkly Tableland.

The cattle yard and turkey's nest should help narrow it down. Not many of them out there!

1) Barkly Tableland is correct. Well done Capt.

Interesting place to visit - but you wouldn't want to live there! I used to sit on the verandah of the house at this particular place and look out ........... at nothing ........... as far as the eye could see ........ nothing ...... maybe a rock ...... if you were lucky!

Nearest town?

Dr

What do you classify as a 'town'?
Camooweal?
Doomadgee?
Mount Isa?

Yep, (2) Camooweal is the nearest town!

OK, any ex-Stanbroke Pastoral Co pilots in here to pick the exact location? There must be dozens of young pilots (and a few older ones) who got the illusive first 1000 hrs peddling Stanbroke aircraft.

Stanbroke (the original!) operated a fleet of a half a dozen or more C172, C182, C206's and a Bonanza/Baron for 40 years before the company was broken up a few years ago.

I know of a couple of prangs that occurred but I don't think there was a single fatality in 40 years. Says something about the professionalism of those concerned and the reliability of GA aircraft.

We weren't too far off!

Lake Nash & Barkly Downs were Stanbroke properties!

A mate of mine was at Lake Nash in the late 70's, flying the 182.
