Benambra for lunch

Recommended Posts

Friday 7th 3 planes left Albury for Benambra to meet with a local identity Ben Buckley and spend some time in this high country village. The trip to Benambra was just divine with pristine mountain views , snow and clear skies.

We landed at the lakeside strip and taxied to Bens hangar. Though we knew some additional aviators might join us on this excursion and it was a Friday before a long weekend to our amazing surprise there were 11 planes in total lined up .

What a fantastic sight , Ben was milling around talking to one and all ,aviators we’re doing what all aviators do when they are together ( comparing the performance of their toys at altitude) after a short time it was off into the village for lunch and a fine feast it was. The ladies at the local cafe excelled. Sitting around a fire eating and solving all the problems presented was extremely enjoyable. Later Ben gave us a talk on his thoughts on green energy and with a short demo of his solution to water useage and electricity production it was time to return to the air. My Brumby was not as lively off the ground at 2250 plus feet wet grass strip as it is at Albury’s 500 feet paved runway. To all who made this Village visit thank you , the town seemed happy to receive the additional revenue and traffic. Clear skies Stevron
