Runway is too short 3,000ft, 300 could probably land and take off but not with a load, also the alternate is Port Macquarie, the 200s have to bring enough fuel to fly 700kls from Sydney or Brisbane then 500klms to Port Macquarie if they can't land.

These two have hung around all week, a crew here to attempt a wing suit flight past Balls Pyramid an 1,850ft monolith of rock some 20klms south of Lord Howe Island. Plan is to use the Caravan as a jump ship and the Robinson as a camera ship. The chap is quite well known in the wing suit world, do a search for Luigi Canti. Here is a link to him flying with an L39 Albatross. iloveskydiving.org/view/videos/official-video-wingsuit-vs-fighter-jet/
So far the wind has not been kind hope it happens.
Finally managed to get a flying pic and an air ambo visited as well, thankfully not serious.
