VK9N/G3MXJ - VK9N/G3TXF - Norfolk Island
Norfolk Air's 737-300 at Norfolk Island's small airport with a row of Norfolk pines in the background. Norfolk Air's recently commissioned 737-300 VH-NLK. By chance G3MXJ and G3TXF were on the inaugural flight from Brisbane.
The distinctive and eponymously named pines are to be seen everywhere on Norfolk Island. Dennis F5VHY (G3MXJ) in front of the QTH of Jim VK9NS who recently became a SK. Jim's antenna farm is still in place.
