  1. We;ll be at the SAAA display most of the show. Pop over and say Hi.
  2. I've been here a while. But sometimes some of the posts make me wonder why
  3. The news reports I've just looked at say the pilot was fully qualified and experienced, but the police id in the aircraft wasn't his.
  4. hate to ruin a good story .. but methinks it was airservices not CASA that made the change ..
  5. Interesting the number of traffic alerts being given out for this area yesterday. ATC must love it not. Altona, Williamstown, BOM Tower featured regularly.
  6. Bairnsdale (YBNS) may be an option if they have a car. I used to live half way between Bairnsdale and Lakes. Generally flew into Bairnsdale. They have fuel, no landing fees, big runways, not sure about casual hangarage though. Perhaps the family can combine picking you up with a visit to Paynesville and Raymond Island. Depending on the kids ages spotting koalas on the island is usually entertaining for awhile.
  7. Great flight home from Narromine. And if I was happy with coffee in the front of an RV that would probably have been his experience :) He had to settle for bottled water till we got back. Apparently I aimed for bugs all the way home and severely depleted the local environment of all little things that fly .. leading edges are definitely not sparkling white at the moment .. but kind of patterned with black and reddish splotches. So the valet duties await.
  8. Aw but I always rely blindly on what you tell me ... :)
  9. Photos from Facebook. No credit to me! In the background of the one you can see the plane camping area. More plane parking was on the left out of sight. And the display aircraft were parked along the apron right around to the SAAA hangar.
  10. Link doesn't work and they were scheduled for the morning
  11. We were told when we arrived for their seminar that they had been held up in Sydney. They were definitely there later that day.
  12. Think we might have chatted outside the Glider Club.
  13. We were lucky with the weather as we flew in on the Tuesday to help with the preparation. Great flight down from Lightning Ridge. Then flew home to Moorabbin yesterday. Apart from a strong headwind it was perfect conditions. Saturday morning the weather was lousy, but it came good in time for the flying displays.
  14. Definitely some Pitts! They looked great in the SAAA hangar overnight. Loads of RV's. Many others. We counted 164 planes well before everyone had flown in. Never got around to doing a final count, but it would have been much higher as heaps came in on Thursday afternoon and Friday.
