It's been over twelve months now since I retired.
My first attempt at retirement was an abject failure, as it lasted only six months.
This one is permanent. I'm deaf, which makes working in noisy environments impossible. Trying to plan with my co-workers on the way to jobs, and conversing with kids and teachers in noisy classrooms had become embarrassing.
I do miss the work. One of the experiences I miss is flying in and out of places like Quilpie, Cunnamulla and Charleville.
This video was taken as we were landing at Cunnamulla.
The aircraft was a chartered Beechcraft Super King Air.
Cunnamulla was an American bomber base in World War Two, and Lyndon Johnson spent time there. I guess the Yanks figured that the Japanese would get so bored flying over the country between the coast and the outback that they'd shelve any ideas of attacking it.
Enjoy the vid.
