The last flight of the day I land at Moorrongga Island. I used to fly here a lot and it's nice to fly over the small island in the ocean again. I land, get out and start preparing my paperwork for the return flight, whilst I wait for the passengers.

This morning it's time for the important part of the job again: waiting! This time the passengers had told me they had a small dog. So I took a small box. Turned out the dog was a little bigger than I thought and didn't want to stay in the box! So the passengers had to bring the dog to some family members in town, because I wasn't happy about having a dog loose in the passenger cabin! The Yolgnu waited, as is custom, in what little piece of shadow is available, in this case the wing of the aircraft.

We visit the Aboriginal lady that adopted us and she is very excited to see us again, and so are we. She always loved to see the kids especially. We catch up with her, hear about how the Aboriginal family is going, the struggles and the joys. She is a lovely Christian lady who is an elder in the local church and has a heart for Jesus and for people, kids especially. It has been great to get to know her a bit and it's great to see her again.

I'm back into the Left Seat! We've been asked to fill in for two weeks at Milingimbi whilst the pilot normally based there does a Language & Culture course. It's a good relief from the sometimes dull office days, that are nevertheless exciting in their own way. Don't get me wrong I love my new job as Crew Training Manager!
