Pitch Black 12 finishes officially today and soon the skies over Darwin will once again be the semi-exclusive province of the commercial pilots. No more formation flying or military jets going “hell for leather”.
As a finale I wanted to show you a few shots of various planes coming in to land over Coconut Grove. The carpark on Totem Road was a popular viewing spot.
If I’ve got the identification of these aircraft incorrect I’ll happily make the correction – please leave a comment by clicking in the bubble beside the title of the post.
For those of you who aren’t into planes, you’ll be pleased to know tomorrow will be a return to more cultural matters with images from the Darwin Aboriginal Art Show last weekend. As much fun as the planes only different.

Nopt much into planes, I must admit, but it’s nice to be able to visit my favourite blogs again! I look forward to the photos of the Aboriginal Art Show…
Not as many as I’d loved to have taken Alison due to cultural (and business) sensitivities but hopefully you’ll enjoy today’s and tomorrow’s posts. We’re done with planes for now.
Why does one only see spelling mistakes AFTER one has pressed “Post Comment”?!
I’m with you on that one Alison! Happens to me too.
The bottom plane is the RSAF F-16. It is so similar to the F-15 but you’ll notice the single fin at the tail rather than the twin fin on the F-15. 🙂
hi Louise, Thanks for clarifying that…I was hoping someone would give me the answer 🙂
