  1. Hello Terry. I exported all the airports information from Plan G. Using the convention that the water runways had a first letter Z, I got this information. ZBBN Story Bridge Brisbane Queensland ZBCS Cairns Cairns Queensland ZBHM Hamilton Island Hamilton Island Queensland ZCFS Coffs Harbour Coffs Harbour New South Wales ZHBA Hervey Bay Hervey Bay Queensland ZMCI Magnetic Island Townsville Queensland ZMHB Derwent River Hobart Tasmania ZMLT Tamar River Launceston Tasmania ZMMB Pt Phillip Bay Melbourne Victoria ZPEC Aeropelican Newcastle New South Wales ZSCB Canberra GA Canberra Australian Capital Territory ZSPT Broadwater Southport Queensland ZSSY Botany Bay Sydney New South Wales ZYW2 Warragamba Dam base Sydney New South Wales ZYWG Warragamba Dam Sydney New South Wales Cheers Bernie
  2. Hi Rob. That takes me back to 1969 when I was working on the Kununurra Airport. It was just before Christmas and it was as hot as hell. We were installing T-Vasis and other equipment on the new runway so that F28's could operate to and from the airport. After our works, the old runway was decommissioned as can be seen in the screenshots. Up until then, MMA, part of the Ansett Group were flying F27s to Kununurra. I was stationed at Port Hedland Airport later in 1972 and the F28's used to do a milk run from Darwin to Perth via Kununurra and Port Hedland. MMA in their wisdom shceduled the flight to leave Kununurra at dusk, just as the local bird population was flying from their day time haunts to their night time resting spots, right across the end of the runway. On a number of occassions birds got ingested into the engines and the next time the engines were run up to full power, at Port Hedland, one of them would fail. So when we arrived at work the next day, we would see a forlorn looking F28 sitting at the gate, waiting for the arrival of a Carvair from Melbourne with a replacement engine and mechanics to swap out the engine. Eventually MMA rescheduled the flight to avid takeoffs at dusk. Both the Kununurra and Halls Creek updates look great. Thank in advance. Cheers Bernie

  13. Hi all. We had a small bushfire down the road at the Warwick Open Space. The Department of Fire and Emergency Services called in two helitacs to help fight the fire. It was put out in about an hour. They were flying low right over my house at times. I took 55 photos of which only about 6 are usable. Here are the best ones. Cheers Bernie
  14. Thanks Terry, I will give it a try.
  15. Hi Terry. Great screenshot. How did you get that blue haze effect? Cheers Bernie
