Morning Glory Clouds of the Gulf of Carpentaria

Morning Glory 2000


2000 Morning Glory Expedition

Ximango from WA
Richard Macfarlane is flying his Super Ximango VH-ZAN from Perth WA to Burketown, arriving around 17 Sep 2000.
John Kenny will be sharing some MG flying in ZAN over their stay at Escott, 18-29 Sep 2000 inclusive, then flying it back to Perth 30 Sep-7 Oct 2000. Richard's wife Claire is to accompany him to the Gulf in ZAN, and John's wife Melva will copilot the Ximango back to WA with him.
John says "Even booking this early, we will be required to shuffle rooms twice during the stay because of earlier bookings".

ASH25 from Keepit
Geoff Sim and others will aerotow/soar the ASH to the Gulf. Geoff practised for this on a trip to the Flinders Ranges in April, successfully soaring from Broken Hill to Wilpena Pound.

Byron Bay
It seems likely that at least a couple, possibly several, gliders will make the trip. Dieter Horstmann is coming, possibly with his DG500. I believe a Ximango from the importers down the coast a bit will also be coming.

Camden
Barry Bowerman, probably in his latest Ximango, and also another Camden Ximango will be there, I believe. No word on the Camden Grob 109 ZAK, but John Levett, Russell White and almost certainly Rob Thompson will turn up with FFN. No word either on the Camden Stemme.
