Groote Island and back

I had the pleasure of being flown up to Groote Island and then flying a 172 back to Jandakot. There were several familiar airfields like Tindal, Kununurra, Broome, Port Headland and Derby and some new ones like Groote Island, Newman & Meekatharra. It was fun flying back, always made more interesting by a new aircraft with some issues.

I'm looking forward to bringing the 172 online with RolfAir so that we can double our capacity in the near future.

This is an amazing video of the VLT setup in Chile. If you have the bandwidth select the 720p option and go full screen and sit back and get blown away by the universe. I have been to a few remote places where there is no light pollution and you can lie on the ground and see a similar picture, but nothing as cool as this.
