Simple Trans Australian Desert Flight

Recommended Posts

Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice simple trans Australia desert flight from YBAS Alice Springs Airport located 7 nautical miles south of Alice Springs in Northern Territory in Australia to YAYE Ayers Rock Airport located near Yulara about 20 minutes drive from Uluru (Ayers Rock).

Fully boarded with passengers and ready for push back


Starting engines after finished with push back


Nice wing view of very early Aussie morning!


Nice tail


Entering into runway 30 for more taxi and backtrack


Dig sunrise


Backtracking on beginning of runway 30


Sorry cannot resist early Aussie sunrise


Airborne and climbing to 14,000 ft for short hop flight with background view of Australian highway route number 87 also known as Stuart Highway


Leaving town landscape and its night street lights


Passing waters of Roe Creek


Cruising at 14,000 ft past Owen Spring Reserve desert


Dig nice sunrise


Look at nice Aussie desert landscape


Cruising at 14,000 displaying superb metallic shine on bottom of the plane


Cruising past clouds


Sun is up


It is hard to identify too many rivers in middle of huge Aussie desert that do not have waypoints but I think it is Finke river!


Don't you love authentic metallic shine?


Never knew that Aussie desert has more more more rivers while this plane passes Palmer river!


Because of the regulations of the forums not allowing more than 20 screenshots per post, please be kind enough to go to this hyperlink below to view rest of the exciting flight.

Nice set Aharon - I looked at the whole set via the link. I think those mountains which google maps didn't identify are The Olgas (Kata Tjuta) - they are the only high points relatively close to Uluru which you would see on the starboard side of the plane on descent to RWY13.

Thanks Bernd1511 and Highbypass,

Thanks for kind words.

Highbypass, you are correct about identity of the mountains.

By the way, for all the viewers of this flight report, the mountains that Google map was unable to identify are called 4,000 ft high Olgas mountains according to one flight simmer who had flown to the YAYE Ayers Rock airport in real life many times and according to correct guess of Highbypass as seen on his post above.
