    I think those photos I took of South Passage were at 2500ft. I have tried to take photo's at lower altitudes but you dont get the same view of the bars. I would be interested in seeing how the drone photo's compare (drone should not be operating above 400ft), might give me some ideas on how to get a decent shot at lower altitudes.

    I went for a Tiger Moth joyflight last Sunday........ from Redcliffe. Amazing views over the water and out to Lake Samsonvale.

    All was going well until we did a loop and a roll.

    Instant nausea and headache. We landed about 11am ish.... and I drove straight home and laid down. Didn't recover until about 8pm. WTF ?????

    The open cockpit was great, just like riding a motorbike with open face helmet.

    Anyway..... any aerial shots would be good...... cheers
    I would have been at Redcliffe last Sunday, had I known you were there would have chased you up.

    I have flown a tiger moth, great plane. Dont have much time for that bloke at Redcliffe though. He is currently involved in an ATSB report regarding a runway incursion (again) at Redcliffe that I think he reported. I have had the prick enter the runway about 3-4 times now when I am about to land (which is illegal) forcing me to go around. Given his arrogance, next time he does it I am going to report it. Where did you do the loop and roll?

    Regarding the nausea, doing a turn like that you pull some g's on exit and blood leaves your head. Best I can do is about 2g in a 60 degree angle of bank turn. When I first started doing that I got dizzy, now I dont feel a thing. Not sure why it knocked you out for so long though. I am hoping to do some basic aerobatic training this year, maybe I will get some more info then.

    You will have to come for a spin with me some day Phill!

    No photo's today I am afraid. Bit to much precipitation.
