Aharon!
As I've said previously, your research into the recorded flights is always a treat. :welldone:
I'll mention a few coincidences here:
We used to live in Bentleigh before we moved out here.
My wife used to shop in Footscray before we married.
Mrs A had relatives in Bacchus Marsh, so we often drove through Melton and Deer Park. Her sister's family lived in Sunshine, and a few of her family used the Sunshine hospital. Our daughter shopped in Melton before recently moving further out of town to be closer to us.
I worked in Moorabbin.
Moorabbin was my local airport, home to Moorabbin Air Museum, where I was a member. I added the external aircraft to the ORBX scenery, as they had the hangar surrounded by an empty paddock. The add on was on the OzX site, and since their closure, has been available on my site.
You left the motor cycle race track off the features of Philip Island, btw, but you did very well!

For me, a very interesting series of nice screen shots. :thumbsup:
