On the area frequency I listened as Darwin was closed due to a lighting failure and other aircraft were diverted to Tindal, my destination. I had rung to check that the lights were working and switched on before i left Kununarra and was reassured to listed to a Quantas Boeing 717 making his calls on the CTAF just before I got there. Sure enough all the lights were on. There was fire surrounding the airfield and fire engines everywhere. My first landing with such amazing lights and I got to use the ILS for the first time too! I did a 10 mile straight in approach.
