Watching that excellent video brought back memories.

I used to fly Cessna 180/185s into Nomad River back in the early sixties and remember the Kiap - Bob Hoad - at the time. The priority when loading the aircraft back in Port Moresby was first the mailbag followed by the case of beer.

The airstrip was in its early stages of construction, was very short and got quite boggy after rain.

Some years later I flew TAA DC-3s into the same strip and got well and truly bogged. The shot of the locals pushing the aircraft back could very easily have been the occasion.

Can only agree, Keith. Great photos, good production and matching sound track. The Meatloaf sequence brought a tear of nostalgia to the eye!

I think George Brough might have something to do with Bruffies Productions Keith.
