Having a ball up here, hotter than I imagined pretty humid too. Had a wander through the fuel tunnels my dad worked on during WW2, had a mandatory crock burger after crock feeding and wandered around town, the RFDS has a great place out on Stokes Hill Wharf with movies on the bombing of Darwin as well as the story on the flying doctor. Off to the V8’s tomorrow have to visit the air museum as they have the only B52 in the Southern Hemisphere then Litchfield and off to Townsville.
One that was restored and flown to Australia partly owned by the AWM landed at RAAF Fairbain and I got a tour of it by the pilot/owner one weekend as I was duty, oh for a digital camera back then.......... given a photo by our base Phot at least, flew as A47-31 but it was a yank aircraft as all of ours where melted down for pots............ some idiot at the AWM sold it in late 90's, so its back in the States now........... one static in Darwin and one being restored by some mob last I heard.
