Cootharaba airstrip

Recommended Posts

There is an airstrip at Cootharaba, close to where my son lives.

He tells me that there has been recent activity, a couple of planes, look like air force trainers. One has a twin tail, so obviously not a CJ4 or Victa

Anyone on the Sunshine Coast any idea what planes are in that area.

Thanks for that, but it doesn't square with my sons description of the plane he saw. He is not an aviator, more into cycling.

Hi, There is a CT4 operating from Greenfields private airstrip at Boreen point which is adjacent to Lake Cootharaba.

Also the other aircraft which was the one probably seen was a 1947 gold coloured Ercoupe,which is also based at the same field. These of course are identified by their twin tails.

That squares with what my son told me about the twin tail. Thanks.
