QANTAS Airways Flight QF179 – Sydney to Norfolk Island.

You’ve probably read some of my Norfolk Island posts, posts on the food, the history, and the cows. In this post I will tell you all about the flight to the island. I was able to use up some Qantas Frequent Flyer points for this trip – my shopping at Woolworths has come in handy…

QANTAS Flight QF1161, Ballina (Byron) to Sydney.

What a wet day! Quite a bit of rain had come to Northern NSW/Southern QLD! “We need it though” said one lady as we splashed across the tarmac to our waiting aircraft. Northern New South Wales and Southern Queensland were in for a drenching over the next few days, so we were kind of glad…

The banter went on for weeks, “10:30?” “No, 10:35!” we laughingly texted each other. The 1 hour and…
