MCALISTER’S WAY FREE Weekly Serialisation
Volume 7 Chapters 12 — 13
A Young Adult Action and Adventure Story for Baby Boomers
The first time I flew to New Guinea as a Hercules C-130 co-pilot I was pretty excited, anticipating the spectacular views. It was pouring with rain when we landed at Port Moresby to refuel. We flew to Lae in cloud and spent the night there. The weather was the same on the return flight so I didn’t get to see at thing. Fortunately I often flew to PNG and got to see the mountains on many other occasions.
I have fond memories of visiting Goroka, Papua New Guinea. We always brought back coffee which was in great demand at the RAAF Base in Richmond NSW. Although right on the equator, New Guinea Highland towns like Goroka and Mt. Hagen were over 1,500 metres / 4,920 feet above sea level and about 5 degrees cooler than Port Moresby — about 25°C all year round.
