Day trip YHOX to YCNK with marginal weather


Recommended Posts

Hired a Jabiru for a day trip to Cessnock from Hoxton park, to pick up my partner, and get some aeial shots of our new property.


Weather forcast was for developing showers at approx 5 pm, plenty of time as i was departing mid morning. as you can see, the weather built up quite rapidly! and made for an interesting return trip. fortunatly there are plenty of diversion options, Cooranbong, Warnervale and bankstown. fortuntaly even though the weather built up rapidly, the winds were still calm and the air was very smooth! i made it back to YHOX with a good hr to spare before the storm proper hit...
