Wings Over Illawarra 2010


Recommended Posts

It didn't go quite according to plan, but I got there. Had to wait for the trough to pass, and give the line of rain time to move further northeast. Left Goulburn at 13:00 to arrive in the middle of the open window between air shows.


Had to go through some light showers, but had a good line to YWOL. The main storm and nastiness was not far north of Wollongong, and stayed not far away all afternoon. Those tracking north for home would have had an interesting time.


Got accosted immediately on arrival by forum members Deadstick and Barefootpilot. It was really good to meet you guys. JustFred brought me my wrist band not long after. Great service.


It was an excellent day as usual. Lots of people and planes. I missed the Roulettes, but that was more than compensated by seeing and hearing the F/A-18. What a show!


Lots of other goodies. Had a filled card in the camera until I got a chance to delete a few, so not that many shots (only 114).


Here's a few.




Barefootpilot's ride. Lucky bugger Adam.




Always love seeing Connie.




The awesome Hornet.


















The exodus begins.




Cessna Dragonfly.






Adam departs.


Another good event. Glad I managed to get there.

Didn't make it this year - the Hunter is U/S at the moment 049_sad.gif.af5e5c0993af131d9c5bfe880fbbc2a0.gif so no chance of deafening anyone... mind you, after blowing over Mazda last year they probably wouldn't have wanted me! ;) Thanks for the photos guys.

They did fire up the Hunter. It sure is deafening. Can't wait to see it fly again.

Oh, excellent! I was told it had a fuel leak! 049_sad.gif.af5e5c0993af131d9c5bfe880fbbc2a0.gif
