    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.

    Yeah……nah.
    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.
    Cheers,
    Mark

    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 ! :p
