Alice Springs duststorm

Recently, I was in Alice Springs, relieving for a pilot away on leave. This is a photo of the second duststorm to roll through in two hours. As you can see, it pretty much stops flying for a while. That roll cloud also had some pretty good winds associated with it, and the band of weather streached from north of Alice Springs to the bottom of Tasmania..... interesting day.
