Coomalie on the news!

Yesterday morning Channel 7 Sydney news broadcast live from the Coomalie airstrip! Correspondent Edwina Bartholomew interviewed Richard as well as his friend Nick, owner of a WWII Harvard aircraft. Short features every half hour featured the Nick and the Harvard, Richard and the Willy WWII jeep, the plane-spotting chair (which allows you to recline while holding binoculars, hence it would also be a good bird-spotting chair!), the cricket pitch (which is surrounded by 11 termite mounds—a full team!), and the live milkwood tree growing from the ashes of a Mosquito airplane crash that was burned to celebrate the end of the war. Stay tuned for further blog posts about the WWII history of Coomalie.
