Steve Donald Posted December 11, 2008 Share Posted December 11, 2008 HI all, well i had a great flight home in my J120 overnight stop at Bourke Cob&Co pub wow what a meal there, then on to Broken hill direct track hec that is remote country looks like Mars at 6500 you just see more nothing, i was thinking at the time this altitude will just get me to more nothing further on if anything happened. i continued on taking pics along the route, i saw some incredible places i met John and few of the guy's at Chinchilla, very nice people i was offered a bed if needed also a BBQ a must go place great facilities for a weekend or a fly in. Bourke was a great spot water everywhere creeks, and an interesting history, i was so amazed at the town great people too, this seems a common trait with Country folk, i met an old sheerer named Irish at 5am on the main street who quickly arranged me a ride to the Airport coz the taxi doesn't start that early in Bourke, what a great bloke. finally on to Broken hill called out the fuel truck on the CTAF ch refueled and took off again for Pt Augusta, climbed out to 6500 due to the violent conditions at 4500 overtook a c172 that took off just before me, he was heading to Whyalla, onward to the Flinders Ranges over Wilpenena Pound and then Mt Brown and a cruise desent to Flinders Field just out of Pt Augusta near Stirling township. overall my stay in QLD and flight home was a great holiday come adventure and i absolutely loved the way my J120 performed and handled she is a magic girl and fly's like a pedigree for me i could not want more. Just go and do it :thumb_up: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
