Hi Guys

I'm Charles. I just finished building a Savannah S.

With a few other Savannah owners we are planning a trip from Caboolture to Cape York.

I have an old Army Mate who lives in the vicinity of Gordonvale, up near Cairns. Does anyone have or know of a strip near there where I could land?

Regards

Well done, Captain Mollison of Long Tan fame - and kudos on completing an aircraft kit build, and going flying in it, at age 86! You're an inspiration to us young 'uns!

G`Day Charles,:welcome:......... I fly from our rural property at Deeral! I`m 11 nautical miles as the Crow flies and about 15 klm by road, south of Gordonvale.

 

When do you plan on arriving here and how many aircraft would want to land?

Hi Franco

Many thanks for your prompt reply AND for your offer for me to land at your property.

We anticipate there will be four Savannahs doing our trip north but I expect only me would like to land at your place.

We are trying to foster a young fellow who works in WA on an oil rig ship. Covid 19 has completely upset his shifts so we are not sure of our departure date.

When we know that I will let you know. Then we can work out if it is best for you if I fly in on the way up or the way back.

Thank you again. I can now talk to my old Army Mate.

Regards

Charles

Many thanks for your offer, Blueadventures. However, I have a sister who lives at Nebo, so will take the opportunity to catch up with her. My Army mate is George Mansford a living legend. Joined the Army as a Private soldier and ended up a Brigadier!
