  1. No, we have strict rules for separation when we fly Cross Country in company with 5 + aircraft faster aircraft go right of the line and slower to the left. Works for us.
  2. William Creek to Broken Hill in a Tecnam Echo during our Outback Safari 2016. Needless to say landing at Broken Hill was a highlight of everyone’s flying history. An Epic Trip with Epic people.
  3. GATTON AIRPARK ANNUAL BREAKFAST FLY-IN SUNDAY MAY 12 A Mother's Day ritual ! We enjoyed a hearty breakfast provided by the Mens Shed crew, in picture perfect conditions with 42+ aircraft of all different types including a new RV 10. A great thank you to all who made it possible, all the mothers and visitors who attended were made very welcomed indeed.
  4. It was a great trip, here are some photos of our time flying Victor 1, arriving at Wollongong and then at Cowra at the Japanese Gardens etc before being transferred to Canowindra for the World Balloon Championships and festival, by our great tour guide Allan of Ideal Tours at Cowra. Canowindra doesn’t have a airstrip any longer. We stopped into Moree on our way home and did the Cotton Gin Tour while stopping at the Old faithful Phoenix Dragon Motel with hot springs. A memorable trip with a great crew.
  5. One of our pilots did land Pipestrel between the cross strip and main, but that’s another story. We were informed inbound by the Broken hill Airport Manager that the cross strip closed regardless of the conditions. We all put in a great effort and taxied in with white knuckles and a few more Grey hairs. We Were completing our yearly flying Safari, this time it was to Ayres Rock from Brisbane. Lake Eyre was nearly full at the time. A very memorable trip with a great crew, with many to top photos and video made by Scott Hendry. Good to see you enjoyed it too.
  6. Here is a photo of my GPS indicating a Ground Speed of 156 kts enroute to Broken Hill from William Creek, in our Tecnam Echo., indicating 100 kts airspeed. Landed, crosswind on 32 also due to the cross strip being closed due to rain. Adelaide Centre informed us it was 23 gusting to 32 kts at 170 degrees which made for a Adrenaline pumped landing experience for all 5 aircraft. All safe with vivid memories as you can imagine.
  7. Karin and Russel Middleton ( Maryborough Aero Club) did a great job this year, approx 25 planes arrived in picture perfect conditions. The Car, Bike, vintage aircraft displays and Scottish Band all made for an entertaining event. The Saturday night Spit roasts Dinner was a memorable feast with everyone enjoying a great get together. The Local councillors were present who thanked the organisers and Aviation community for a job well done. Next morning we were again treated to a sumptuous breakfast before we departed for the Seafood Festival at Harvey Bay. All in all a great weeken
  8. Fraser Coast Wings and Wheels Event. Saturday 11th August Maryborough Airport and Harvey Bay Seafood Festival Sunday 12th August. Here is a action packed weekend or day Flyin event worth considering. Maryborough Aero Club are happy to provide a breakfast for those who are coming along and where possible will provide transport to and from your motels. Karen, events co-ordinator, suggests we could otherwise use the local taxi service that wouldn’t be very expensive as the motels she recommends are literally only a couple of minutes drive down the road. Maryborough Motels that Karen i
