On the west side of Melbourne, the air is feeling crisp as you stroll towards the aircraft hangar. Inside a Tiger Moth coloured with post-war grey and RAAF symbols reminds you of its history.
You feel a sense of nostalgia as you are fitted with a Biggles-style flight jacket, headset and goggles.
Your pilot, an international airline captain, briefs you and you jump up onto the wing of the Tiger Moth and into the front seat of the plane.
Soon the prop swings into action and with that great sound of the engine, your pilot makes the final preparations for taking off. With clearance from air traffic control, it's chocks away chaps!
Once airborne, your pilot gains altitude and flies over the ocean out toward the West Gate Bridge. With coastline views for much of the way, you can pick out areas worth visiting later.
Your flight path takes you toward Moonee Valley Racecourse, the MCG, Melbourne CBD, Albert Park Lake and onto Brighton before returning to the base along the coast.
The feeling of an open cockpit, the wind in your hair, it takes you back into the bygone era of flying aces and legendary aircraft. Perhaps its time to reminisce or to find just what it was like?
