The view toward Mt Townsend. Eugene von Guérard 1862 courtesy National Gallery of Australia

2013 has taught this slow learner not to make any predictions for 2014.

However for those who have travelled with Plane Talking and offered their thoughts, criticisms, and always valued insights please accept my thanks and very best wishes for the holiday season. It’s been a good discussion.

As a very young boy I flew in a TAA Douglas DC-4 Skymaster past, not over, the part of the main range of the Snowies shown in this somewhat dramatic interpretation of the landscape painted by Eugene von Guérard in the late summer of 1862 or thereabouts.

Here’s wishing all of us good flying as well as good fortune in the coming year, and with maybe a bit more separation between our airliners and the terrain.
