My wife and I have always talked about flying in a bi-plane open cockpit. When I saw a brochure in our hotel advertising a unique dual cockpit our long wait had finished. I secretly booked the flight and totally surprised and thrilled her when we turned up at the Caloundra Airport in front of the Waco aerobatic bi-plane. We had lovely photos taken in front of the plane and in the cockpit with our "Biggles" radio headgear and goggles. We had a 40 min scenic flight along the beaches from Caloundra to Maroochydore, then inland to Maleny, down to Australia Zoo then back to Caloundra. The mid-late afternoon flight was magical and we took loads of brilliant photos. It was expensive to us but we thought it was worth it for the unique experience. Acrobatic flights can also be had. It apparently is the only dual cockpit bi-plane on the Eastern seaboard, with another one in Adelaide and 2 more in Perth. It was the highlight of our week holiday.
