What could be better than a flight around the Glasshouse Mountains on a blue sky day? On 14th November 2021 I decided to hire one of the Club’s 172s for a short scenic flight. RAQ has recently been upgraded and is now glass cockpit with a G3X touch avionics suite.
It was short flight out to Mount Archer near Woodford, where I searched for the Archerfalls airstrip with limited success.
From there I passed Woodford.
Just to the north west of Woodford there’s the site of the annual Woodford Folk Festival.
Then it was on past the Glasshouse Mountains where I flew past the volcanic plug known as Mount Coonowrin.
From there it was on to Bribie Island and back to Redcliffe for a couple of practice circuits.
A strong westerly was blowing so it was right hand circuits on RWY25.
