Aerial trip departing on 19th Oct 2008

Spent last night in Bourke after 10.2 hours in the air. It seemed an intersting place that
I would like to spend a few days at sometime. It made for a nice change from coastal towns. From what I saw it was a dusty place and I was told that it gets bloody hot there.

We had set of from Armidale and worked south towords Scone, then across to Taree through Port MacQuarie and Coffs harbour. Then we head West through Moree through Lightning Ridge before arriving at Bourke at 7:30pm. We stayed at the Major Mitchell Motor in and ate at the Bourke Bowling club Inc. The next morning after a good sleep we departed at 0900. We had two jobs to do before heading south. I made sure I had found the correct place as it's not too often that we are out that way. We then headed south east towards Dubbo. This was a 2 hour flight that became a 1.3 hour flight thanks to a 20 knot tail wind. On the ground the wind was heading the other way to we were suprised to find this. We stopped of at dubbo and had a Chicken Hamburger, having had no breakfast this was very welcome. We had hoped for a big day but as we got further south the cloud increased making it no good for Photography. We decided to call it a day in Cowra. Tomorrow the weather isn't looking too god so we can have a sleep in and a spot of breakfast.
