    Default arrived in OZ

    Well I have arrived in OZ - well Melbourne to be exact - for a two year stint over here - bit cooler than in the UK at the moment but fantastic weather for mid winter!!

    Travelled on Cathey pacific - not impressed with their food much!- but the flight was ok if a little tedius to say the least - a A340 to HK then a very noisy A330 to MEL!

    HK was very hot (35-39 degrees and 200000 percent humidity!!) and bothered and full of people - not to mention camera shops!!! - got a couple of bargains to add to my equipment.

    We were out looking for somewhere to rent today in the Brighton area and I was more than pleased to be entertained by first of all - a turbo prop display team in a V formation flying over the bay! - later I saw a tiger moth doing very low wing overs along the beach and finally a Harvard was heard then seen - followed by a very bright red staggerwing with a very shiney chrome propspinner!!

    Great stuff - not bad considering it was our first time out and about today - after arriving on friday - made me feel less home sick (of warbirds)!! - MLC will be the only one who understands this paragraph!

    been impressed with the many incarnations of the omega over here!! - loads of different lengths with all the same doors! - seen a few vectra c's all 3.2's!!!


    Hope you guys are all enjoying the heat and sun!!

    bye for now!

    You'll be off down the local Holden dealers later then?

    Glad you've arrived safely and keep us posted on your progress down under, you might even be able to set up a meet with some of the Vec-c guys down there

    I'm really jealous mate. I'd love to be down there with you. Hope you get to see more vintage aviation, there's quite a bit knocking around I believe.

    I wish I'd been able to get to see Sally B with you.

    Hope you find somewhere with a nice bid pool!!

    Sounds good Rich.... would be great if you could get a Melbourne meet together.... I think there are 3 or 4 members in the area.

    Love the sound of those vintage planes doing flypasts... wish I could see that.
