Some people think if they call final at 10 miles they have priority, they don't. Those that say "Downwind number 3 to the Kingair on finals and the 172 on base" are wankers as well. Keep calls short, if you say joining downwind the people know where you are. Those on finals and base or anywhere in the circuit know where to look for you. If you have just joined downwind then you are level with the threshold, not 5 miles out going to join downwind.
If you would have shown the whole airstrip it would have been clear with the fire bomber base at the other end, you can however see a red trail from the retardant overflowing as the bombers accelerate.
Well done Thruster88. A great place to fly. Good friendly airfield community, ranging from hang gliding, paragliding, gliding, micro lights, GA and RA. Close to Wangaratta, Brown Bros. at Milawa, Mount Beauty, Shepparton and a little further to Deniliquin. All active and welcoming flying groups.
