Flying Photographs - Add yours!

Postby Richard Faint » Fri Mar 17, 2017 4:54 pm

You know, it's so easy to loose sight of one of the main reasons we all come to Watts, which for many of us, is to enjoy the freedom of flight in our own aircraft. So, on a lighter note here are a couple of photo's taken this morning flying the Jabiru from Watts to Bundaberg for maintenance and service. Got away at 7am for an idyllic trip at 4,500' with a helpful little tailwind of about 5 Knots. Not a bump in the sky for the entire trip of 1:40 Hours

Rugged country to the west of the Sunshine Coast. The flight was planned to track up the valley to the west to Gympie, but this option was fogged in on the valley floor, so a diversion towards the coast was called for. That's OK, I got to extend the flight for about another 10 mins.
