Flying over to Dingleburn Station

So the season is all over now and and summer is just around the corner. Got to go flying with my old man for the first time in couple years as his back has been crook and I have been back in Scotland. There are hundreds of little airstrips all over these parts at remote sheep stations and wee huts etc so thought we would head over to Dingleburn station on the other side of Lake Hawea and have a look. Here are a few shots from the flight.

Dingleburn approach

Rough wee strip at dingle burn before the main one. Almost hit a bird of prey on the way in! Epic backdrop with the waterfall though.

There are plenty more strips further up the valley

Taking off and heading home…
