Where am I JERR

King RB, DF, and Gerry111

You are correct

Painted Hills, out of William Creek, a nice add on to a Lake Eyre Scenic Flight.

Really interesting country.

DF - we often drop into Leigh Creek to refuel and stretch our legs on our way home.

Safe Flying

I am pretty sure this is Finke, on the way from YPAD to YBAS




Cheers

Finke

Thanks for that

It was about 4 years when I did that flight. I remember being impressed how big the runway was.

Have to wait until August for the next outback flyaway.

The homestead buildings of Finke.

Safe Flying

Wish I was still out there sometimes - although not during summer!

Hello DF

Yes its hot, darned HOT.

Junior JERR went back early to William Creek as the rains have attracted more tourists, he cannot believe how hot it is.

He is happy to be flying again after the summer break.

Cheers

Nicely timed strobe shot!

What's the go with the different window arrangement? The one at the front seems to have a smaller rear window.

Good shot, Jaba.

Someone a few pages back, posted some photos of some pretty slick formation flying. As good as that was, these boys really knew how to do it....



...whilst being shot at!

A great shot of the way things used to be. If it needed to be done, it was done! No fcuking around the edges like we seem to do it these days.

Count the B-17's. How many?

GB!

Yes but in their case staying in close formation multiplied their defensive weight of fire (and chances of survival) by a factor of hundreds - good motivation indeed to not "**** around the edges" and stay in close formation! Very few stragglers over Europe made it home...

Cheers.

How many?
The coffee is still to kick in but I think I see twelve; perhaps the faintest hint of a thirteenth ....?

Thirteen for me. I am sure a panoramic shot would show a lot more!

You know what would have really made Budgie's picture of the B17s? Chemtrails coming off the back of all those planes

Mystery object



This thin silver of metal/foil has been riding around on top of the panel for quite a few years now. I once remembered what it was, but immediately had a seniors moment and haven't been able to figure it since.



Reflection of the diabolical hard to figure mystery object from off the windscreen. Its around 3/4's of an inch long.



Poor image of said object through the screen. It reckon it was a computer thing like a bit off an old hard drive or something similar. Help us out will ya!
