Lots of really nice photos


A lot of them look like South East Alaska were I live. I'll have to post pictures of my home airport and surroundings.


Have a good one.

A trip to Lundy

A nice calm day, what could be better than heading for Lundy Island?



The white dots on the runway are sheep so a few low passes to encourage them to move



Round again to land this time



Safely down, though undoubtedly the worst surface I've ever landed on (no complaints I was comprehensively warned!)



After a good lunch in the Marisco Tavern - away again doing a circuit of the island - a view back down the runway here



And away back to the mainland

This is South Passage Bar, between Moreton Island and North Stradbroke Island just off the coast of Brisbane, Australia. I took an extended lesson the other day, and the instructor and I flew down to the Gold Coast and back hugging the Islands of the South East Queensland Coast.











And your sexy pilot paying lots of attention to flying the plane!!!! I think its time I had a shave and a haircut!


Bonus Tangalooma (Moreton Island) Shot. Normally this place is packed with recreational boats, but its been queit lately.





You know, sometimes I have to pinch myself to remember how lucky I am to live in this part of the world. Days like this are ones I will take to the grave knowing that a very few people will experience this. I worked hard to be able to do this, but what a reward. I dont get to do it often, but when I do it takes about 6 months to wipe the smile from my face. I am so spoilt to live in such a great country, and I so often overlook this.

I got a lot more pics that day. I also have pics of Fraser Island. When I get time I will pull some more out and post them up.

Just decided to upload a few more piccies of the Islands of Brisbane. These islands are just under 20nm from my as the crow (or cessna 172) flies. I sailed to Moreton Island yesterday. How lucky am I?

Hey Andy, I've stayed on Moreton Island. You of course have only viewed it from above...

Barton flyer, great pics. We were just talking about Lundy today as a place we ought to go. How was the strip? It will be a 180hp 172 with a STOL kit if we go so interested in your views.

thing - the strip is undoubtedly the worst surface I've ever landed on - there is a lot of info around on t'interweb so google away!

A few low passes were needed to clear the sheep - I suspect they may have become accustomed to being buzzed by light aircraft as I ended up very low before they shifted (of course that may have just been my super quiet Rotax engine!)

Nice pub, great scenery and certainly I'm glad that I got it in my logbook

More Flying around Australia - Oz, Downunder

Some pictures from some of my trips around Australia

Enjoy

Safe Flying

This was taken back in 2010. Lake Eyre was in flood. This does not happen very often. The Birdsville Track was closed by flooding of the Coopers Creek due to heavy rains in Queensland. There is a punt to transport cars, trucks etc across the "creek". My son now works at nearby William Creek as a charter pilot for Wrightsair.

Outback South Australia

William Creek, where my stepson now works. Population of 8, number of aeroplanes also 8!

If you visit Australia you should visit the Outback.

Not much to navigate by, much easier these days with GPS. I remember doing flights through the Kimberly area in the 1980s (outback NW Australia) with a not very accurate WAC.




Not much green up here. William Creek is the smallest town in South Australia.
