uluru & kata tjuta scenic flight 1

At Yulara, I opted to take a scenic flight which would give aerial views of both Ayre's Rock (Uluru) and the Olgas (Kata Tjuta).

Picked up in the town centre in a minibus, the driver told us he'd drive right out next to the plane - because I could hardly walk due to injuring my ankle earlier that day.  We were all rather surprised when the bus driver jumped in the plane and started it up - he was providing a complete all-round service!

There were 7 of us, plus the pilot (44kb) ... but they'd had to get a bigger plane - they normally use a 6 seater. (47kb) Pre-flight checks (40kb)
