This is just an update on my latest progress in my flight around Australia. One of the biggest sacrifices I had to make in switching to FSX SP2 was that the Dornier Do27 I was using was no longer compatible. After mulling over my choices for a while, I decided on using the Found Bush Hawk as a replacement.
This flight was from Lockhart River (YLHR) to Lizard Island (YLZI.)
Kind of does look like a big lizard laying on the water. I wonder if that's how it got it's name?
Aug 12, 1770 - The name Lizard Island was given to it by Captain Cook when he passed it on 12 August 1770. He commented, "The only land Animals we saw here were Lizards, and these seem'd to be pretty Plenty, which occasioned my naming the Island Lizard Island."
Lizard Island is one of the most exclusive (and, of course, expensive!) resort islands in the world. www.lizardisland.com.au/
Aaaah......tropical Cairns. My niece and her husband and two children live in Cairns. They run a glass lead-lighting business and are qualified dive instructors. Nice place to visit in winter but too darned hot & humid for me at any other time.
