Anzac Day 2020 and Days Past

Recommended Posts

It was a very much muted AD here in Albany. The state has been divided into regions and travel between is only permitted by permit. The Great Southern is 2 away from Perth, and so several of our usual formation members were grounded in Jandakot. Several of our own members had aircraft in maintenance, (in expectation of a complete grounding of all GA), and a couple had escaped out to their farms. So, we ran a mixed type formation, which required some real effort on the part of our faster members: as it did for the tail-ender with only 160HP because we were at 140KIAS.


There was no RAAF formation, so we were tasked with the 1100 flypast of the Memorial, (to break the 1 minute silence). There was no marchpast. However the main drag was filled with cars, and a lot of pedestrians who had fore-knowledge of the small RSL event.


We made it over the 'top' with 20secs to go, not too bad, considering the many showers and the wind at the time.

I had planned a flight from London to Canakkale to make my way to the Anzac Day memorial at Gallipoli...


This was my route, had all permissions and clearances pre-booked... Maybe next year...
