Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. I was up at 4.30am this morning hoping that a break in the weather would allow me to continue my journey.
Unfortunately, I am still grounded in Darwin, but for very good reasons. Check out the images – argh!!! – below. This is an all too common weather pattern up here in the NT at this time of year and exactly what I need to avoid flying through. This weather can be extremely intimidating for commercial jet pilots who fly up here at this time of yea, so this is of some consolation, but it is also very frustrating!!!
I am grateful to Simon Chadbourne and his incredible Team at Rydges – Palmerston. They are quite happy to have me stick around and have certainly taken excellent care of me by continuing to sponsor my accommodation & breakfast – thanks so much!
My hope is to fly tomorrow, Tuesday. While I am waiting out this weather I will reschedule my itinerary and let you all know in a future post.
I also appreciate hearing from you, so please do drop me a line and keep in touch. All of a sudden I feel quite far away from you all, so even a few sentences or two would go a long way in lifting my mood.
Thanks always, AJK
