zac21,

A great photo too. The elderly B727 trijet still looks fast, standing still. I love the modern winglets and the classic aft stairs. Just so practical! I have such great memories of travelling around Australia in them.

Grass is a bit long, but I think it is my driveway?

Nothing like the photographic quality of Piano Man, but a couple from recent travels.





And a mate from YCAB who has invested heavily in preserving Australian aviation history with the first ever Beech in Oz. If you ever have the privilege to see it it is immaculate.

Spraying Beaver

The Beaver spraying looks like it was east of Balaclava, SA, so perhaps Kenny B, or Bob Beattie.

I don't believe I actually met the pilot for this particular aircraft on this occasion. It was a while back (mid 60's perhaps??) but Ozaggie you are spot on with the location. 'Tis indeed Balaklava to the left of the Beaver. Well done!

The name of Bob Beattie rings a bell - he may well have been on AG work in this area - perhaps I heard his name mentioned by the local contractor who used to arrange for these ops. Unfortunately he is no longer with us so I can't ask him.
