Evans Head

Did none of the usual suspects make it down to Evans Head for the Great Eastern Fly-in?

In the absence of anything else, here are a few of mine.

DF,

Far more than just sad, regarding the two aboard the Mallard in Perth. For there were two fatalities in that accident.

RIP, two fellow aviators.

Both "further west, my son!" The 707 was taken from the ground, not at a capital city airport...

Spot on, Duncan! Well done. The 747 was at the Northam airshow, October 1976.

The earlier 707 ("in the blue sky", obviously not over Melbourne ) was at the Pearce airshow in April 1977. Also doing beatups were:

The reason I remember this is that I was one of the ATCs on duty at Northam that day. I bet it's never seen a 747 that low since. The guy did 2 passes, one clean at a higher speed, the other configured and slow (the image above).


From memory, the day was also marred when a PA28 went into trees of the end of the runway.


Looking at the F28 pic reminds me of MMAs Sid Goddard and Jack Murray, both of whom used to revel in displaying the F28 whenever they could.
