Well Jabba, if you look to the right of the spinner there are three points of land, the new house will be on the closest one!

Not ugly enough! (of course those of us who are plane-less are just jealous of any owner)

Probably an X-Air

Crikeys, checked that meself. Ahh try 28D 29.042'S 135D 54.763'E that should get us in the right position. That other set is not even remotely close. Lesson learnt for this little beasty...finger trouble and not double checking is a no-no

Those other co-ords are for one of the gas fields around Moomba?????? Glad it's not me navigating.

Does anyone know what causes propellers to look like venetian blinds when you take photos of them with mobile phone cameras?

Yes, Joe. You are correct, of course. That is one weird looking place.

Kiwi ch(u)ck (note my clever impersonation of a kiwi accent), its an opal mining area at Coober Pedy in northern SA. This one puts a bit more perspective on it.



My understanding is that the little white piles of dirt are where they have put a drilling rig down to see what's there - and found nothing to get excited about. Where they have found something, there will be a mine shaft or more substantial digging.

Earth zits.

Actually, they are tourist traps and they work very well.

Hey Doc,

Kiwi ch(u)ck (note my clever impersonation of a kiwi accent)


Must be my weird sense of humour, that one really gave me a laugh.

Cheers,

Good onya!

Cheers Dixon.
