Here's a couple more photos from my recent trans-Oz crossing in the FTDK.

PS: In the circumstances, that's the best I can do - my 'puter got nicked in a home invasion / break and enter on Tuesday night! Lost all my pics!

I see you made that trip at night FTDK!

Having your home broken into was a bit of hard luck, it always makes me mad to hear of people doing that.

I can only hope they are brought to justice.

Don't know where it is U.

But I do know that the only reason the ship's going anywhere under sail is because of the downwash from the helo.

I'm sure that's not the way they did it in the 'olden days'.

Perhaps there's a niche here for helo operators who like hovering a lot over water behind ageing sail craft ....

hmmm OK Corkey, from your hint I'm reckoning Puysegur Point, up around Cromarty about at the lodge... maybe Spit Island.

The yellow 185 has me thinking too... only one anywhere near the area I can think of would be NZWF based...

Am I close? Do I get the Chocolate Fish???

Or perhaps on second viewing around the Haast/Arawata River mouth, South side -can't think of the name of the bay. Which on reflection makes better sense of the yellow 185! When was it? Was Paul flying?

Hmmmm.....I'd have a crack at;

1. Jacksons Bay

or

2. Martins Bay

I thought it was Paul's machine as well. I kow there are 2 other yellow 185s, one being a magnificent recent-rebuild owned by a syndicate up here, and another that I don't see or hear about much but based in the South Island.

I found your airstrips but have no idea of their names.

First one, 44*11'05" 168*11'32"
second one 44*01'40" 168*22'12"

Also appears to be another strip in between these 2, at Barn Bay just NE of the river mouth (about 300m long).

Would you have beleived someone if they had have suggested to you 20 years ago about an idea such as Google Earth? For FREE?

Sorry Launchpad neither of those 2 places or machines. There are about 8 or 9 in the country that I know of which could fit the description. And yip that rebuild you are talking about is something special would be hard to find a more impressive job

Warbo you are correct with locations. Must have taken quite a while to find them.

Also appears to be another strip in between these 2, at Barn Bay just NE of the river mouth (about 300m long).
Yes that would be this one at Barn Bay


Come on guys still after some names, that second one should be simple, a 185 operates out of there for a few months of the year,- they used to have a 180 untill it went missing about 10 years ago - never to be found
