The owner of a newly-imported Russian Mi-2 helicopter has had his aircraft grounded at California’s Hayward Airport while the FAA looks into allegations that he flew it without an Airworthiness Certificate and without locally-required insurance documents. Officials in Oakland, California, where pilot Thierry Thys was based, asked him for the documents, but when he couldn’t produce them and later flew the Mi-2 to nearby Hayward , the FAA was notified. The pilot was not injured, and damage to the aircraft was relatively minor. The jet’s right wing tip struck the runway and started a small fire on the wing, which then started a grass fire at the airport. The aircraft suffered an unknown amount of damage. Both occupants were fatally injured, one of whom was the aircraft owner. The pilots were flying from Georgia to New Mexico, where the owner lived.

Nell’aria elettrica le note di “Provaci ancora, Sim” si ionizzavano, come peraltro accadde altre Volt. Uno sparo improvviso echeggio’ nel locale, facendo volare il cappello di Biswood. Alle sue spalle, un omone fece capolino dall’uscio. Sul petto, scintillava una stella argentata. Sul capo, uno strano copricapo a forma di coppola.

By the end of the year and the following year, the demand for passage to Australia rose considerably. Rivalry between the many shipping companies intensified as they fought, through advertisements extolling the virtues of their speedy and comfortable ships, for the lucrative new emigration trade.

No doubt risks were taken with the aim of turning a quick profit, and no doubt ships were lost. Melbourne grew into a vibrant metropolis, and trade between Melbourne and Sydney prospered. Access to coastal towns such as Port Albert, Warrnambool and Portland was quicker by ship until roads improved and the the motor vehicle dominated land transport. We should also consider the Bass Strait islands – King Island, the Furneaux Group and the Kent Group – they are listed separately and are, incidentally, part of Tasmania.

The western coast of Victoria contains, I am sure, more shipwrecks by number and tonnage than any other stretch of coast in Australia. And yet the loss of life has not been exceedingly high, with forty-nine lost with the wreck of the ship Loch Ard near Port Campbell in being the greatest, and the Children, at Childers Cove further west, with 38 lives: This is surprising low as the coastline is magnificent in its ruggedness, a fact not lost on the tourist operators who promote Victoria’s Shipwreck Coast.

For the purposes of this listing, which includes over a thousand entries, Port Phillip and its entrance, the Rip, has been separated, as has Gabo Island to the far east of the state. Westernport and Phillip Island have been included in this main list. The vessels scuttled in Bass Strait have been included in the Port Phillip listing.

Cambage in his book Notes on the Native Flora of New South Wales, Part X, the Federal Capital Territory noted that Joshua John Moore, the first settler in the region, named the area Canberry in stating that “there seems no doubt that the original was a native name, but its meaning is unknown. In , some of the older residents of the district claimed that the name was derived from the Australian Cranberry which grew abundantly in the area, noting that the local name for the plant was canberry.

History of the Australian Capital Territory Before white settlement , the area in which Canberra would eventually be constructed was seasonally inhabited by Indigenous Australians. Anthropologist Norman Tindale suggested the principal group occupying the region were the Ngunnawal people , while the Ngarigo lived immediately to the south of the ACT, the Wandandian to the east, the Walgulu also to the south, Gandangara people to the north, and Wiradjuri to the north west. Archaeological evidence of settlement in the region includes inhabited rock shelters, rock paintings and engravings, burial places, camps and quarry sites, and stone tools and arrangements.

European exploration and settlement started in the Canberra area as early as the s.

Pre-nineteenth century[ edit ] Indigenous Australians are believed to have lived in coastal South East Queensland for 32, years, with an estimated population between 6, and 20, individuals before white settlement. On 17 July , Flinders landed at what is now known as Woody Point , which he named “Red Cliff Point” after the red-coloured cliffs visible from the bay. The newly selected Brisbane region, at the time, was plagued by mosquitos. These immigrants were selected and assisted through immigration programs established by John Dunmore Lang and Johann Christian Heussler and were offered free passage, good wages and selections of land.

He formed additional outstations and made several important journeys of exploration. He is also infamous for his extreme use of the Cat o’ nine tails on convicts. The maximum allowed limit of lashes was 50 however Logan regularly applied sentences of lashes. MacArthur had previously rejected use of the University of Queensland complex as his headquarters, as the distinctive bends in the river at St Lucia could have aided enemy bombers. This incident became known colloquially as the Battle of Brisbane.

The State government under Joh Bjelke-Petersen began a major program of change and urban renewal , beginning with the central business district and inner suburbs. Trams in Brisbane were a popular mode of public transport until the network was closed in , leaving Melbourne as the last Australian city to operate a tram network until recently. During this era, Brisbane grew and modernised rapidly becoming a destination of interstate migration. Some of Brisbane’s popular landmarks were lost, including the Bellevue Hotel in and Cloudland in , demolished in controversial circumstances by the Deen Brothers demolition crew.

Road[ edit ] Hume Highway internal bypass running beside the railway station Situated on the old Hume Highway , Albury is a major transit point for interstate commerce. From March , Albury was bypassed by the new Hume Freeway. In , the Smollett Street wrought iron arch bridge was constructed over Bungambrawatha Creek.

Smollet Street was extended westward through the botanical gardens to give direct access from the Albury Railway Station to Howlong Road by a straight street. The bridge is near the botanic gardens and the local swimming pool. The bridge is a rare example of a metal arch bridge in New South Wales, and is the oldest of only two such bridges in New South Wales, the other being the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Originally, New South Wales and Victoria had different track gauges , which meant that all travellers in either direction had to change trains at Albury. The tracks and long platform In , the 5-foot inch 1.
