  1. Hey Mark. Good to see the old Kimberley shots refrusacing again. That was indeed a great day especially as Rainor and I had a bit of fun getting that hero shot of you and Christian. If memory serves me the dood in the shot was Don from Queensland. I remeber him not being too fond of flying and heights. It's amazing he even went up there. I also remember flying out of the Mitchell Plateau in a Chieftan with him in the back saying "this is not good, THIS IS NOT GOOD" Thanks for bringing back all the good memories mate.
