Around the world in Cessna 182

June 10, 2004
Alice Springs, Australia (YBAS) to Adelaide, Australia (YPAD)

I guess Australia is not much fun from the air. One has to actually go there in order to appreciate anything. I had another very long flight over a very big nothing. Nonetheless, the important thing is that I am making progress, and I am sure there will be many more interesting things to see on this journey.

At (relatively) early morning local time I created a flight plan to Adelaide, got my plane ready, got the clearance from the tower and took off heading 156 at the altitude of 8,500 ft. After a long and mostly featureless flight over the red desert I have reached Adelaide. I am done for today.
