We Do Miss Fiji

One of the most beautiful videos I've seen in a long while - underwater sites in Fiji and Tonga. It goes by fast, so just pause it as you please to take in the scenes.

Full screen is a must for this one:


We will return one day.

If you over-shoot in the second, you can do the first...

Assuming you were the pilot?

Martin - indeed, if you overshoot the runway you may end up in the drink - or in the trees.... :)

But with 910 meters to work with, that is unlikely to happen.

We were in a Britten-Norman Islander - a 1960s 8-passenger twin-engine prop plane. I was sitting right behind the pilot in this case. After he landed I commented, "ah, you've done that before", which made him laugh loudly. :)

Must have been a good laugh. Wish you had that landing on video!

Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Have a good one P.

Thanks laminar_flow. Long time. All the best.

Interesting interview you posted on Fiji M.U.D. by the way - with Winston Thompson.

Delightful video. Must use it on Friday when we do a gig with elderly people in a nursing home. Beats lecturing them on Fiji politics! Pity about the soundtracka though - bit rackety. Could have used Fijian acapella singing instead, eh!

P & W - glad you enjoy the video.
Nature beats politics any day. Sorry you don't like the music - I think it's nice. Singing might be too distracting I think and then the Tongans might want their input too. Ah well, there's always the option of no sound, which is closer to what the divers hear. :^)
