I don’t know how many of you have been following the flooding in Northeast Australia, but there’s been quite an impact on aviation there, both commercial and GA, with one of the major airports being closed for three to four weeks!

The Boston Globe’s “Big Picture” has a nice set of photographs showing general devastation, but photos #3 and #16 are of particular interest to pilots.
