Given to Fly
Strange - possibly just "like" the ABC LandLine page to get access to the post. It is essentially the same footage as Viator linked, but gives better perspective as the footage is better cropped and resized for portrait display on a mobile phone.Needs a password, unfortunately
The worrying/comforting thing is that conditions aren't really ultra bad - stronger winds and higher temperatures would see all these fires go 'catastrophic'
With the volatile oils and vapours given off by the eucalypts, in these conditions the air just explodes in flame from ground level to 300 to 500 ft high depending on the height of the trees.
The fire fronts are now joining to create 'megafires' .....
