Now I feel I have been to the Festival……………and I know that laugh !!
and here is what happened with the plane crash into the ferris wheel in 2011.
The light plane that crashed into a ferris wheel at a fair at Old Bar Beach near Taree in 2011. Amber Christine Arndell, who was on the ride, has been awarded her $1.5m in damages.
I can remember the news feed…………..I had said “why would you place a ferris wheel on a air field ??”
This was my first Old Bar
Ferris wheel was not on the airstrip, it wasn’t even in line with the airstrip…..
Strong winds and pilot error……..mostly the pilot error……ended up with the plane in the carnival section, outside the park. We were wandering the markets around the oval when it happened……turned around and saw the aftermath.
The rescue went on for many hours, into the night.
I still have the T-shirt from that year……
Taste in design is a bit questionable
2016 saturday arvo cruise off the airstip...
2017 cruise day..
2016 rolled around and the sun still shined...
And then 2017 came, the sun was out but some clouds rolled in on different levels...
One for Special Air Services
2018 and blue skies again. It never rains at Old Bar!
……no Greg, but when it does…..it pours !
2019 had some cloud cover but the day was fine. Unfortunately, to quote the second witch in Macbeth, "Something wicked this way comes!"
Personally, I think the weather is determined by Scotty’s (Syncro27) weather predictions ….
Whenever he’s said, “ pack the sunscreen, it’s gonna be a scorcher”….. it’s pi55ed down !
I have the T Shirt. Not even a virtual this year though
