We had a terrific day trip up to Teewah national park recently. As the photos show the flight along the coast at 500 feet was great fun. Just wish I could have set down on the beach and had a swim !! The round trip for the Karatoo was just on four hours. Lots of different scenery for this boy from the bush !! Where to next time guys and girls ??

News Break :
Santa makes a surprise visit to "Raysfield" !! Ho ! Ho ! Ho !
Following an impromptu interview with the jolly white bearded old gent ( although somewhat slimmer than stories have led me to believe) it has been revealed that the more traditional reindeer and sleigh have been passed in for a somewhat higher performance RV - 6 called Harvey !! Seems the long hot distances encountered on the Australian run have been a bit to much for Rudolph and Co. Hence the upgrade !!
Anyhow after delivering a bundle of goodies and receiving a big kiss from Dianne. ( Perks of the job !! ) Santa was off again . So with a laugh and a smile he bid us goodnight !!
I always did believe in Santa .

We had an interesting morning at the Lockyer Valley Aero Club Christmas get together recently. A good variety of aircraft in attendance and a friendly greeting made for a great visit !! Ross and I had to make a dash for home due to impending summer storms. Turned out to be the right decision with a good fall at "Raysfield".

One of the greatest honours a pilot can have is to introduce a youngster to his first flight. Here we see young Tristan on the occasion of his tenth birthday. Check out that grin . I think it say`s it all !! A special thanks to his Mum & Dad for organising the big event. Happy birthday mate !!

Another great fly-in breakfast held at Raysfield !! A beautiful Sunday morning . Clear skies and smooth air. Ross was out early putting in a few circuits with the Drifter. What a way to start the day !! It was just wonderful to see " Hone`s Flying Circus " arrive overhead and land for a terrific social morning. This must surley be the heart of sport flying. Safe trip home guys and girls !!

A terrific morning was had by all those that attended the Gatton Airpark breakfast on Sunday. A very special thanks to the folk from the Airpark for their wonderful hospitality and friendship. The south-east corner of Queensland is a great place to fly with so many destinations and social events to attend. All good fun !!

Here are a couple of shots of the Karatoo tied down in the executive carpark at the recent Wings over Warwick fly-in. Falco on one side with RV-6 on the other. Boy was I glad that I had waxed the spats before we left for the show !! A great day with a chance to catch up with lots of friends.

What`s going on here !? This shot captures an anonymous masked spray painter in the act of using Ross`s Drifter as a paint stand !! Seemed like a good idea at the time. Ross was wondering why his wing skins seemed a little pale !! Oh and please, don`t try this at home . ( Staged shot for Ross`s benefit !!)
