AirVenture 2019 - Parkes

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the video, ClintonB. Some of us endured the atrocious winds, dust and muddy rain, then headed home early Sunday morning before the airspace was closed. Showed what we missed.

" except for the Greek stuff that had Chinese people doing it."

Ah Good food !.

We get the same in Sydney, Chinese cooked by Italians, or Greeks. LoL.

Many thanks for your picture & video, Much appreciated.

Dad was Greek, Mum was Chinese, Daughter was Australian/Greek/Chinese. Happy Aussie family having a go. When Dad cooked my Greek food it was great. So also was their Greek shortbread, Baklava and Aussie brownie slice. Had a great time at Parkes. Pity about the dust storm.

I just reviewed my flight log & there were times on the way home I got really trashed & slowed down to 70 knots to reduce stress on the airframe (and me). I tried flying hemispherical at 7500 but adjusted a number of times to get into better air. My highest ground speed was 171 knots & 9951 feet over the Bees Nest bushfire. I saw it in front of me from just NE of Tamworth & the closer I got the more ominous it looked & decided initially to track around it to the north as the way forward was a wall of grey haze. In the end I continued with reasonable visibility & fast descent to Nymboida & home. Flight time from Parkes to South Grafton 2 hrs 40.
