A Happy New Year to you Grahame.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the huge contribution you have given to this forum site and the pleasure it has given to me. Your photos are fantastic.

Any sign of the airship?
 
Does the airship have ADS-B gear? It would be interesting to see its flight path.

Philip, the airship only has, what I call a Claytons ADS-B, fitted. Transmits everything except the lat & lon info so unfortunately no tracking.

If it is upgraded to the full ADS-B the track would indeed be a very interesting display.

Thank you and Happy New Year Patrick, aviation has been a life long passion, from watching to flying to photography.

Here is the schedule for mandatory ADS-B - I wonder what an airship falls under? Below 10,000 ft and no IFR? And many are UAVs too I gather so maybe different rules in that guise?

The local guys claim their airships are CASA-certified but don't state as what: http://www.airship.com.au/airship_de...ification.html

The IACO Type Code on the Australian Register lists it as "SHIP"
