Maybe they are trying to figure out a way of tossing KRudd out the open back door without anyone noticing!

Not sure where my picture links have gone, they are not in my post any more - were they too big?

Using a Panasonic FZ200 - has a 24x optical zoom on it with a constant aperture so it does pretty well at those long shots.

I think the tail markings are for 36SQN.

SgtBundy, the pics were never actually showing, I just fabricated my comments to make others think that it was only them that couldn't see your photos. Good guess in the end hey? !! :-)

Oh a sarcasm detector, thats a REAL useful device.

Ok - I moved the photos to a different album and it broke the links... my PC must have cached them when I checked it after I moved them. Links fixed.

That Sydney night shot..

I said to a mate once, when he was taking me from Sydney to Newcastle in his Eastern Bandit, that it 'looked like a fairyland'. His reply was 'It is full of Fairies too..'

Ah the Cresco over Docklands on climb to FL's to drop meat-bombs over St. Kilda.... Not the best aircraft for taking photos out of with that wing in the way.

Can't agree with you anymore VH-XXX, but they're a lovely aircraft to fly.

Here's a shot of the bolty without that wing in the way..



Nice shot zappalin and thanks for sharing, managed to get a few shots that night as well. Here's a few..

Some slides scanned from my Father-in-law. Probably around 1974, as it also had plenty of slides from the Brisbane flood. He was working central Queensland & PNG at the time.

Great shots volumex. The bottom DC3 picture is at Goroka airport PNG highlands (Kaw Kaw gap in the ranges just above the rear air stair) and the one below that with the two fellas looking over the fence looks to be Mt Hagen airport PNG.
