Alex Fisher's 'Flight of Solidarity' Cessna 172 VH-DBB Touches Down at Gladstone Airport

Local plane spotters Anthony S and Michael F were on hand on Saturday 21 June to capture some great photos as Alexander Fisher - a 17-year-old Brisbane pilot who is attempting to be the youngest person to circumnavigate Australia solo in an aircraft - touched down at Gladstone Airport after completing the first leg of his journey from Brisbane's Archerfield Airport.

Alex Fisher's 'Flight of Solidarity', is also about raising awareness and funds for the Royal Flying Doctors Service (RFDS) and motivating the youth of Australia to actively contribute to their communities.

Alex - in his Cessna 172 VH-DBB - along with his support plane - fellow Cessna 172 VH-WPI touched down at quick succession to take on fuel - and to allow the flyers to grab a quick snack!

Both aircraft eventually departed further North-bound to the Whitsunday Airport at Airlie Beach / Shute Harbour where they will be spending the night.

He will depart the next day heading North to Townsville and Cairns.

We wish Alex all the best on his record-breaking flight and encourage all followers to donate to this very worthy cause.
