Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice simple trans Australia desert flight from YBAS Alice Springs Airport located 7 nautical miles south of Alice Springs in Northern Territory in Australia to YAYE Ayers Rock Airport located near Yulara about 20 minutes drive from Uluru (Ayers Rock).

It is hard to identify too many rivers in middle of huge Aussie desert that do not have waypoints but I think it is Finke river!



Don't you love authentic metallic shine?



Never knew that Aussie desert has more more more rivers while this plane passes Palmer river!



Descending!



Descending through clouds can be pure fun!
