Changes jamjar? Mate lucky you recognised it. If you flew in could you actually get in and park, let alone taxi out again.

That place must surely exceed the movements at TL

XXX makes sense to me.

Yes, there are now a minimum 40 Dash 8s per week and it is still not easy to get a seat! I still own one house there but have now retired to the Coast.

Just ran Jamair's post through a US government decryption program and came up with this.
Of the Police Air Wing Cessna 208's, VH-PSY is in Cairns, VH-PSV is at Mount Isa and VH-PSQ is in Brisbane. There is a Cessna Citation at Brisbane, VH-PSU, a Beech 1900 VH-PSK at Cairns and a Brittain Norman Islander VH-PSZ (possibly) on Horn Island.

Hope this helps.

Beautiful shot right there. Amazing sunset.

Cleaned up, the B200 is one sweet looking aircraft from an aviation buff's viewpoint. I used to love watching them depart CNS when I was working in and around the airport.

I'd buy one, but neither have the money or a pilots licence so kinda awkward.

If that's the case, it's parked up the hill.

Must be very late 70's, early 80's. The strip was built in stages. Certainly a goat track at the beginning.

Early 1983 actually. The aircraft were there for the first outrigger canoe race around the island. Surfers Paradise Lifeguards from memory. The harbor was operational and the tavern was up and running. Had a ramp and a 'Fairmile'. Williams had a wood boat. There were goats on the track and deer all over the place, but that's another story. The strip was about 2000ft then.

Well not all, but being a winch based strip, expect >4000 foot unless they are dropping fences at minimum width for safe ops.

Cheers
