Many years ago I graced the skies above this pond, back then there were no houses, no M7 freeway, nothing but a quiet little airfield called Hoxton park. I remember the large old trees to the north of the runway which made life very interesting during crosswinds – what happened….development and housing happened and subsequently the closure of Hoxton Park airfield, a real shame 🙁 I can't remember how many times I eased back on the yoke to clear the hill behind where this photo was taken whilst looking down at what was a sparse western Sydney.

Enough nostalgia 🙂 +Rodney Campbell joined me for sneaky sunset session after work (well only one of us was working 😉 ) at this changing location. I'll definiely be back when there are more favorable sunset conditions.
