NOTE- Sherlock Ala is under construction!!!

 

Main 350mtr 08/26 strip is in fine serviceable condition and open

 

However a new rwy of 600 mtrs has been marked and from the air looks inviting! It has a visible white cross of NON-SERVICIBILITY as the nth end has SINGLE PHASE POWERLINE RUNNING OVER IT IN LINE WITH HOUSE

 

I am currently contructing(attempting to contruct) a 500 mtr rwy for the faster boys/gals( without obstruction) but could take some time.

 

So visiting pilots use the clear visible dirt rwy 08/26. 350 mtrs- it's clear of obstruction and good to go - stick to centre as runoff on edges may be softer.

 

Thanks look forward to seeing you drop in-- ahh. Ease her in...

 

Any questions or for more info pm me

YQDI, if anyone gets stuck due to weather on the range don't hesitate to pm me. We can organise airport pick up and a car (if we are home of course)

 

Contact details are also on the aero club door.

 

Prior notice is nice (if you are doing a planned trip) but not nessesary and certainly not expected if caught by the weather.

 

We are all friendly and don't bite........ Well depending on how long since we last fed of course:wink:

Not trying to gloat (especially for people with long trips just to get to a strip), but I just walk out the back door, up to my hangar, and when ready just taxi out onto Taree Airport and go.

 

Compared to others, I guess I can't complain about the grass runway next to my hangar continually being closed...

Hmm! They're only little crosses. Who's going to notice a little plane? 012_thumb_up.gif.cb3bc51429685855e5e23c55d661406e.gif

Yes mate you have got it made.I'm also impressed with the aircraft built in the blue hanger across the strip from yours.

If you're thinking of Ollie's Hornets, he's actually in the silver hangar next door, followed by a parachute operation, then Gary Morgans hangar (yellow doors).

 

There used to be a Harvard living in the blue hangar, but haven't seen it for a while, just an almost finished Esqual/Lightning and one of Ollie's customer Hornets awaiting delivery.

 

In front of those hangars is the new space for more hangars (if you've got the money....)

Hi people i,m posting this in reverse and looking for an invitation to meet Raa members in and aroud the Darwin area. I,m traveling up their for my first visit in the first week of June for a week via comercial air. Having a lifelong Australian military history interest I would like to get in contact with fellow pilots up their with a view to possibly viewing the same harbour topography and terrain as our current trading partners fathers did, from the air, in their quest for their "greater southeast asian co prosperity sphere" during the second word war. I fly an SS 4 storch muster out of elliot field bundaberg and any interested pilots up their would be great to meet up with you. Regards Hargraves

Pick up CAGIT while you are there. If you have a Storch in Bundy AND CAGIT people will beat a path to your door.

YGAR - Western Australia- Ningaloo Reef

 

To all who fly

 

Gnaraloo has 2 strips now, YGAR can be found in the country airstrip guide and there is a new strip right at the homestead. Accommodation is available and even a hire car so you can travel around. Fuel could be arranged if you needed it but Carnarvon has fuel supplies and is only about 100km south.

 

Cheers Paul

Pack your fishing gear, I moved to Carnarvon just for the fishing in the late nineties. Had some great times there. I miss the climate and tucker from there now.

Pindan Is it true  the ship wreck gone from the cliff base now? near the salt jetty at cape cuvier.

both the shipwrecks have virtually gone now, the one at the salt and the one on Gnaraloo, but the fishing is still the best in WA

I know the area well having lived in the Upper Gascoyne at what used to be Cobra Station. I also looked after Nyang closer to you for a short period.

 

i remember Gnaraloo used to come up on the pedal when the RFDS base and School of Air were humming in Carnarvon. And I remember the sharks at Quobba!
