Around Kalbarri

Visited places along the coast, south of Kalbarri - spectacular scenery and whales and dolphons (in quite close) out the sea. Then in the afternoon into Kalbarri National Park to view some of the gorges along the Murchison River.

RIAT 2018

A disappointing show this year - nothing really very interesting and the fight by the new F35 was very uninspiring!

Duxford Air Festival 2018

A disappointing show at Duxford - not many interesting aircraft, long gaps between displays and all hampered by very hazy conditions. The Patrouille de France put on a very good display to close the show.
