Trojan

Yes, the same REK.
She certainly got around.

Opals were the attraction here for the charterer...

Distinct 'New Australian' accents from somewhere in the Balkans,one of them carried a briefcase from which he produced cash to pay for fuel,hotel (great old fashioned one in Quilpie) and food. Also contained a handgun which made the refuelers eyes boggle the first time he saw it...

An interesting couple of weeks then back to Melbourne.

You don't see many aircraft around these days with the rego's on top of the wings. I can think of only a small few. Probably still on the same paint job from the 70's.

Good to see some cloud there PianoMan, too many of your photos have been picture perfect lately



In another state:

If you know where this is taken...



Then you might know where this one is...



This one should be fairly well known. Don't recall ever seeing a picture of it on here.
