Kevin & Vicki Bailey travelling in their restored 1935 Stinson Reliant SR-8C VH-UXL around Australia. It commenced March 25th with the crossing of the Nullabor, thru SA & in Victoria - attending the RAAF 90th Anniversary Pilgrimage, AAAA Annual fly-in at Echuca. Our plans are to see as much of Qld before turning left into Northern Territory and finally down the west coast of WA to home.
Well, things are much more happier and organised on the Bailey farm. The 'old' engine is safely reinstated on the Stinson with some of the new parts to ensure long, safe hours of enjoyable flying.
The new departure day is proposed to be Monday 21st March to ensure we make it to the RAAF event commencing on Sunday 27th.
Thanks to everyone for all their concerned emails, calls and best wishes for our adventure.
Kevin and Glen in his Chippi going for a fly together.
