a family history of aviation

Some of my earliest memories are of flying in my Grandfather’s Cessna 175 Skylark, a four-seater light aircraft, that he flew from his farm in Queensland’s Western Downs Region. The buzz of the propeller, the vibration of the chassis and the bumpy rural runway were all part of the thrill. However, it was the distinctive viewpoint of the geometric patterns of the fields of grain and ant-like dots of livestock scattered across the paddocks that stayed with me.

Mother nature after all has an imagination far greater than that of any human.
