Remark Photographer
VH-VQF (cn 3474) At Flight level340 high over the southern coast of Borneo we encounter some intense St Elmo's fire while passing around some large cumulus clouds. Radar is in manual mode giving rather intense picture on our ND's which is caused by the unfiltered display shows all rainfall.Normally a display like this would be avoided but with the unfiltered display showing even light rainfall as red(no its not a thunderstorm just light rain)in manual mode makes it relatively easy to get the smooth ride through any wx.
