Thanks for these pics - it's great to see a DHC2 in something other than AG work.

Sadly I haven't seen or heard one down here in the driest state for many years.

Only ever saw them in daylight ultralights. Didn't know they were lit as well. They make a rather impressive gatepost though, don't they, as well as the other sculptures there.

Could well have been, Power. Sounded great, quite low revs, like a 1-pot motorbike. Was doing (legal) horizontal wiffodils.

My profuse apologies, Jabba, I misread your text as meaning the only Staggerwing. You are quite right!

UL. Great photography, thanks; great way to start a day.

Bloggs - The Staggerwing - is a thing of beauty (Sigh), glad someone cares.


(Round of applause).

Wings over Illawarra 2104

Attended Wings over Illawarra today - questioned the effort on arrival with 30kt gusting to 50kt crosswinds, and more so once it was apparent nothing was going to be flying. Late in the afternoon a few of the jets including the hornets were able to get up, but nothing else dared move. Even when they did get up it was impressive watching the lighter jets including the sabre really having to crank in against the wind. The Sabre on return from its display took a really hard landing with a strong gust catching him just at touchdown:



There was significant smoke while it was braking and it took a long time to pull up. The hornets ended up taking off over it while it stayed sat at the end of the runway - not sure what the situation was.

Not sure of the full story, but the Connie was apparently sunk into a taxiway during a runup trial - was pointed out to me by some army cadet volunteers.




A selection of other shots from the day.

Hornet through its paces:






S.211 on its display

Depends if HARS gears up to keep an F-35 running in 2045.

Perhaps 2045 may be the earliest target date for all the Australian F-35's to finally reach full operational capability?
