Latest Edition of Propwash -
Aerial Fire Fighters
The QF 32 story
The HDFC committee has agreed that Propwash has evolved to more than just a newsletter for our club members. It’s becoming a magazine with readers across the world. That is something that I, as the Editor of Propwash since August 2015, am very proud of, so let us celebrate this achievement as we near the end of 2019. Thank you for all your stories and I continue to look forward to receiving more of them for our little regional aviation magazine! Send them to
FIRES NEAR ME was the app I depended on since 27 October 2019 when the first glimpse of fires started in Port Macquarie. Yes, it was scary as the fires quickly spread towards the north of Queensland and the south of Taree. Some describe the scene as an apocalypse and as the fire fighting aircraft zoomed above us, I felt as if I was in the middle of a war zone. The ground and aerial fire fighters did a great job.
Special feature on "Special Moments with Captain Richard de Crespigny" on QF32.
