Sitting in Lake Evella

Im on a wait (again) in Lake Evella (again!). Its good though we get internet in the top end communities so the waits with my laptop, movies, food and ipod is pretty cruisey. Its hit March and it seems the wet season is virtually over. Not too many tempo periods on the forecast, no more insane scud running, no more instrument approaches (well.. on the ATIS anyway). So i thought i would post a few photos from the wet which i have taken.

Other than that i have not a whole lot to report, except moving apartments and starting a second job to help pay some bills. We have a big day ahead of us on Sunday as its a AFL grand final on the Tiwi Islands, and we are moving something like 300 people. This involves to my knowledge doing "hot" turn arounds in the metroliners, which involves leaving one engine running while deplaning and boarding the aircraft. I will hopefully capture some of this next weekend and post it here.

Big storm over Howard Springs which is the initial approach fix of the Darwin rwy 29 ILS. I was going to Bathurst Island and had to wait a little bit before i got back in.

Both were on the way to Borroloola. Not bad storms at all, but they are still cool to fly around.

This was taken on the ground in Palumpa. That was one of the worst days i have had to fly in terms of dodging weather.
