Re: Bushfires in Australia

Hottest day records were broken in NSW today, still currently 43 where I am 1815 AEST. 37°C (98°F) here at 20:30 AEDT. Got to 44°C (111°F) the highest reading ever recorded in the Canberra, beating a 1968 Canberra Airport record and a 1939 record. The other main issue here for now is power outages,...

Re: Bushfires in Australia

I’m in a fairly safe area where I think it cannot get to here, but it is still concerning. I was in Canberra during the 2003 bushfire, or firestorm as it was called. That was my first close range bushfire experience. I gauge from that, when the ash starts falling and the sky changes colour, as a ti...

There are some flights cancelled today. I assume this could be due to working outdoors e.g. ground crews and health risks to the operating flight crew.

Re: Gliding - More like Real Flying

The usual 'if we crash don't blame us' forms had to be filled out. The launch point for the gliders was a fair distance from where the bookings were taken in one of the hangars, so after a short drive out there, it was time to strap in. The cockpit is small and cramped and the seat is angled back l...

What also needs to be mentioned is the fact that most of the country is in the grip of an unprecedented drought.

I’ve never known anything like it. The Kings Highway, the main route of access from Canberra to the south coast has been closed since before Christmas, and may not be re-opened before February. The fire has caused fallen trees and the asphalt is now also damaged from the heat. Crews cannot safely ge...

It was interesting seeing the condition of the 747-400 compared to the 737-800 I had on the flight back. Both were a similar age, but the 747 looked every day of 17 years, while the renovated 737-800 looked quite fresh despite it's age. Memorabilia you want, memorabilia you shall receive - https://...
