Today was going to be a reasonably short day – about 75kms in all. Nuga Nuga National Park to Lonesome Campground in the Expedition National Park. The road is gravel and very dusty, but all was going well until THE HELICOPTER INCIDENT!!!!
Rather than explain this, I have included two videos – the first is taken in real time, and the second is slowed down. The whole incident was over in 5 seconds, leaving us both wondering what in blazes had just happened.
REAL TIME 5 SECS
SLOW-MO 40 SECS
And that’s all I’m going to say about that! We’ve reported the incident to CASA (Civil Aviation Safety Authority), who seemed to take it quite seriously. Unfortunately, there is no registration number visible, so the chances of kicking somebody for stupidity don’t look very high.
