The above map is of a flight by 2 601 XLB.s completed in the the first 2 weeks of June 2010Some facts about Australia,
Here are the 2 601 XLB's We built our Zodiacs about the same time and did the Mods about the same time also. Eddie lives in Sydney NSW and I live in Bendigo Vic.
Below is the flight log from my Garmin 196, the time away was 14 days I logged 4478 nm and 48.9 hrs
Day 1 was the 28 May 2010 and we flew from Bendigo-Swan Hill-White Cliffs 379nm 4.4 hrs. The weather was marginal but once in the air and heading north the cloud lifted and within the hour we had broken clouds.
Day 2 saw and early start it was going to be a long day
White Cliffs-Cameron Corner-William Creek-Oodnadatta 515 nm 6.2 hrs. All day we had head winds 15-20kts the landing at Oodnadatta was a welcome relief knowing the longest day was at last over.
