  1. CENTRAL AUSTRALIA - NEAR ALICE SPRING He is often on the road, walking in the bush, from place to place, following his dreams, parts of his story. He is on his Songlines... #01 #02 "Mamanha nyiya bandiku kankala Minkala..." : "When the earth was soft, creation spirits travelled all over the country, giving it shape and form, making the rivers, the gorges and the mountains.... #03 ...They created and named all the animals, birds and plants. They gave people their own language and laws to live by. Everywhere in the land there is evidence of their travels... #04 ...They sometimes transformed themselves into features of the landscape. They are the spirits ancestors of all of us, Aboriginal people. Their presence remains in the land today..." #05 I met Tommy many years ago near Uluru, in the Valley of the Wind of Kata Tjuta #06 #07 I was looking unsuccessefuly for a new kind of the very rare kangoo-mouse as well as possible "fossil living" dinosaur-ants...(the Graal for the entomologist !) He told me he maybe had seen such tiny marsupials (he said "kalunnytia" in Yinjibandi), a small group of them once in the Tanami Desert near Birindudu... and he kindly drawnt me a small note about the location... We came back together via Kings Canyon to Alice Springs. In the museum, we talked about the crash of the Kookaburra plane and famous Coffee Royal incident : - "Tommy, surely they should have learnt from aboriginal people how to survive in the desert..." - "Oh yes Peter... but it takes many years to learn, and a long practice..." #08 #09 I remember his words : "My strength, the strength of the land. I can feel it in myself, I belong there. It’s our country, our dust, our place. We remember the old people..." #10 WESTERN AUSTRALIA - SOUTH OF PERTH #11 #12 #13 I had to look for Tommy, stopping my survey in the karri forest. Anyway I did not find any new type of velvet worms - I was more lucky last month in New Zealand... #14a #14b Lucy called me this morning : "...It is about Tommy...his mother is dying, Peter. He must be back as soon as possible at Balgo Hills... He should be near Dongara in the botanical park, or in the Karijini Park...you know...as a ranger...and he still does not have any personal phone..." #15 From Manjimup, I would need about 1h30 to go to Perth Jandakot. There I will catch another plane I could load a lot of furniture for the Balgo Community, and I will try to find and pick up Tommy before the end of the day. It would take about 2 hours to fly to Geralton and 1 hour to drive to the Lessuer botanical park...1 hour to fly to Kalbarri, and finally 4h to fly East to Karijini...quite a long road...! WESTERN COAST #16 #16b #17 #18 I remember when Tommy told me while visiting Perth, how its Grand-Grand-Father T. Windich left the city with John Forrest, and all the details of the 6 months expedition along the Nicholson and Musgrave Ranges upto the Overland Telegraph Line near Lake Eyre : "His story is famous in the family...he had a very long scar on one arm due to a fight against a group of native hunters ... they were more than hundred and against only six - fortunately the terrific thunder of their guns has been so impressive that it affraid all the group......All the way they found spinifex, grassy plains or drift sand hills, sometime a fine pool of water...incredible journey...and they finally survived !" #19 #19a #19b #19c #19d #20a #20b I did not find Tommy at the Lessueur botanical park. The rangers told me he left a few weeks ago to Karijini... From Geralton, flight along the coast to Kalbarri (72 Nm at 337°) and next to a small airfield in Karijini NP (406Nm 40°) #21 #22 #22b #23 #24 Close to here, for its 50 years old birthday, we took him on a plane - landing on the NW Coastal Highway near Nanutarra Roadhouse on a specific part of the road enlarged for this purpose (normally only in case of emergency !) : he discovered the reef, enjoyed to snorkeling ...and met a whale-shark ! "Maybe Rai, the father of all fish, Peter, so huge !" #25 #25a #25b #26 #26a #26b -------------------------------------------------------- . . . SEE PART 2 COMING NEXTLY ! ----------------------------------------- (NB : Previous posts : Something Different #1&#2 : How how I met Lucy on the Eastern Coast ... and travelled with her and a strange guy up to Wolfe Creek Crater, Peter, and their amazing adventures in Solomon Islands Something Different #3 :-D ... about the family of Lucy coming from Alaska in Something Different #4 )

  4. An average morning in the small Australian location of Broome, WA. 33°C and no clouds visible at the airport. A man is taking pictures of a Qantas 737. On the other side of the terminal, the visitors of the airport café think it's too early to sit down and have a beer. A young man who doesn't look like the waiter ponders if he should sit down next to the lady at the table. But he's too fascinated by another object within his sight! Let's get a better overview of the scenery. Something seems odd here. This is none of the usual visitors to Broome. A Boeing team decided to do some test flights in the town. A relaxed spectator witnesses the rare event of a Triple Seven backtracking on Broome's 7900' runway. Surprisingly, it's not that difficult to turn the 777 around at the end of the runway. Not a challenge for the seasoned pilot! Boeing One X-ray, cleared for takeoff. Level off at 3000' and right turn over the bay. Some of the engineers took seat in the cabin. Rumour has it that one of the locals took the opportunity to do some illegal drone filming. Well done! Unfortunately, the team was too busy to take photos of all the patterns they flew. Ninety minutes later: beer is out of stock, only a vintage newspaper serves the guest. Cheers Lars
  5. G'day guys, One of our beta testers (and connoisseur of all things Australasian) Jon Murchison has made a few shots of Broome International for XP11, which I wanted to share with you guys. We're putting the scenery through it's final paces as we speak; our first Australian destination for XP11 shouldn't be too far away at all. Enjoy!
  6. Hi all, I have been noticing this problem at YBRM for a while now where it appears that runway texture or something is playing up a little (see attached images). It doesn't seem like the whole runway, just a few rectangular patches. No matter how far I fly (within sight of the runway) the rectangles can be seen over the aircraft. I don't believe it is aircraft related as it appears on all aircraft. I'm in P3D V4.2 I have uninstalled YBRM and reinstalled with no change in outcome. Hope you can help, Andrew

  8. Hi After not finding an answer with the search mode. While landing on runway of airport Broome I crash against an invisible wall shortly before touch-down. The vertical-speed cant be the problem Anyone an idea how to solve this problem without turning off crash detection? (Yes, newest version of airport installed with FTX Central 3.) Regards Pete
  9. Hi, I just downloaded the Broome Airport add-on but the installation stops towards the end and says "FTXLights_Day.exe" was not found, how do I fix this?
  10. This has got to be the best video I've ever seen >http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RXgDSkbojPs
  11. I finally got around to downloading the update for the QW RJ/146, and have been burning a few hours this morning belting around in the new models. A couple of quick shots into and out of Broome, with a bit of an old-school flavour - Ansett WA's late 80's/early 90's shooting star scheme. My first trip in a plane was in a very similar aircraft, as a young kid flying down to Perth from Karratha. Cheers, Jarrad
  12. G'day everyone, Has been quite a while since I've had the chance to do some "proper" sim flying, and even longer since I've put up a few shots. The weather here in Perth is getting pretty warm this weekend, so as always, I thought the best way to cool down was to head to the beach. Cheers Jarrad
  13. Hi, I was just browsing the internet for some info on a few areas in WA and I stumbled across this map of Broome. It looks nice anyway, and it may be of some use to anyone who has the brilliant FTX Broome. http://www.broomedirect.com.au/pdfs/Broome_Map.pdf Cheers,

  15. G'day everyone, I'm very excited to unveil the first shots of my latest airport - Broome International Airport. After a recent foray into US projects, this will mark a short return to Australian airports for me; Broome is located within the FTX AU Green area. On a personal note, Broome has been a bit of a pet project - my family holidayed there regularly when I was growing up, and I have to say the area is one of the most dramatically beautiful places I have visited. For those not familiar with the town, Broome is one of the biggest tourist destinations in Australia; as well as being home to the world-famous Cable Beach, it is also a major hub and gateway to the Kimberley wilderness area. Broome has a fascinating and diverse history, much of it centred around the pearling industry that was set up in the 1880s - indeed one of the many visual icons of the town is the sight of a pearling lugger sailing past Cable Beach at sunset. The town also came to prominence during World War II, when the airport (home to USAAF B-17 and B-24 bombers) and town site were bombed by the Japanese. The most well-known casualties of this raid were a fleet of Dutch flying boats anchored at Roebuck Bay - these aircraft were on their way from the Dutch East Indies to Perth at the time. The airport itself is quite iconic due to it's proximity to the town centre - the main runway at YBRM essentially cuts the town in half. From an eastern approach, short (short) finals take you low over the town centre - when visiting the local outdoor cinema (Sun Cinemas - incidentally the oldest outdoor cinema in the world), it is common to be interrupted by a 737 flying over only dozens of feet overhead! When approaching from the west, short finals take you over the impeccably white sand of Cable Beach, passing just to the south of the Cable Beach Resort. Broome International Airport is the major hub for the Kimberley and north-east Pilbara regions; it is served by by five major airlines (Qantas, Virgin, Skywest, Air North & Skippers), is base to most major GA operators in the Kimberley (in fact is home to more C208 Caravans than any other airport in Australia), and is a regular host to international and interstate business jet traffic. More recently, Broome has seen the construction of a large new heliport to service the Super Pumas and Sikorsky S-92s flying up the offshore rigs in the Timor Sea. I have spent a large amount of development time optimising the scenery to a high degree, so whether you are an NGX flyer, "low and slow" cruiser or even a helicopter (or amphibian!) explorer, Broome Airport should be perfectly suited to your requirements without breaking your machine. FEATURES - Ultra-detailed & low-impact rendition of Broome International Airport (YBRM), - Huge coverage area including the entire town of Broome, Dampier Peninsula, Dampier Creek and Cable Beach - High-quality ground coverage at 7cm (airport), 50cm (town centre & cable beach), 80cm (town and peninsula) and 9m (extended coastal waters) - More than 15 new StaticFlow models, variations and skins created specifically for Broome - Advanced rendering & ambient occlusion techniques - Dozens of local landmarks and points of interest, including Broome Jetty, the Sun Cinema, Broome town centre, Gantheaume Point lighthouse and Cable Beach Resort - Brand-new tropical vegetation library - created specifically for Broome! - Custom AI ships - including vessels unique to Broome - Full suite of ObjectFlow, PeopleFlow2, TextureFlow and CreatureFlow - Designed to blend seamlessly with FTX AU SP4 COVERAGE Enjoy!
