Pre-nineteenth century[ edit ] Indigenous Australians are believed to have lived in coastal South East Queensland for 32, years, with an estimated population between 6, and 20, individuals before white settlement. On 17 July , Flinders landed at what is now known as Woody Point , which he named “Red Cliff Point” after the red-coloured cliffs visible from the bay. The newly selected Brisbane region, at the time, was plagued by mosquitos. These immigrants were selected and assisted through immigration programs established by John Dunmore Lang and Johann Christian Heussler and were offered free passage, good wages and selections of land. He formed additional outstations and made several important journeys of exploration. He is also infamous for his extreme use of the Cat o’ nine tails on convicts.
Cambage in his book Notes on the Native Flora of New South Wales, Part X, the Federal Capital Territory noted that Joshua John Moore, the first settler in the region, named the area Canberry in stating that “there seems no doubt that the original was a native name, but its meaning is unknown. In , some of the older residents of the district claimed that the name was derived from the Australian Cranberry which grew abundantly in the area, noting that the local name for the plant was canberry.
History of the Australian Capital Territory Before white settlement , the area in which Canberra would eventually be constructed was seasonally inhabited by Indigenous Australians. Anthropologist Norman Tindale suggested the principal group occupying the region were the Ngunnawal people , while the Ngarigo lived immediately to the south of the ACT, the Wandandian to the east, the Walgulu also to the south, Gandangara people to the north, and Wiradjuri to the north west.
Archaeological evidence of settlement in the region includes inhabited rock shelters, rock paintings and engravings, burial places, camps and quarry sites, and stone tools and arrangements.

Nell’aria elettrica le note di “Provaci ancora, Sim” si ionizzavano, come peraltro accadde altre Volt. Uno sparo improvviso echeggio’ nel locale, facendo volare il cappello di Biswood. Alle sue spalle, un omone fece capolino dall’uscio. Sul petto, scintillava una stella argentata. Sul capo, uno strano copricapo a forma di coppola. Imbracciava un fucile a canne mozze. Fatture non pagate” ringhio’ Biswood, girandosi di scatto ed estraendo la pistola.
Ma Mex Willer fu piu’ rapido di lui, estrasse la sua micidiale arma da fuoco “No, non quella” gli gridarono. La rimise via, richiudendosi la patta dei pantaloni ed estraendo questa volta il pistolone giusto. Il proiettile colpi’ la mano di Biswood, facendogli volare la pistola. Picasso e Verga erano amici per la pelle. Non a caso, infatti, le cronache della disfatta francese citano la Baresina.

Emergency services at the scene of the hot air balloon crash in the Hunter region. The Singleton Argus “The pilot decided to land at the first available landing spot,” a statement from Balloon Safaris said. All three other balloons landed safely. We were worried they would hit the barbed-wire fence running parallel to where they were flying,” he said. Once the balloon’s basket hit the ground, no one got out, Michael said.
He said hot air balloon staff were talking about the strength of the winds “the whole morning”. Their own balloon landed roughly just before the balloon carrying the severely injured passengers, he said. Locals said a number of hot air balloons tried to take off at the same time, as the wind picked up unexpectedly.

December Rescue crews searching for the wreckage of a Piper Cherokee in California’s Salton Sea have discovered the corroded remains of a WWII Grumman TBF Avenger torpedo-bomber. It is located in 37 feet of water and covered by a thick layer of mud.
The owner of a newly-imported Russian Mi-2 helicopter has had his aircraft grounded at California’s Hayward Airport while the FAA looks into allegations that he flew it without an Airworthiness Certificate and without locally-required insurance documents. Officials in Oakland, California, where pilot Thierry Thys was based, asked him for the documents, but when he couldn’t produce them and later flew the Mi-2 to nearby Hayward , the FAA was notified.
The pilot was not injured, and damage to the aircraft was relatively minor. The jet’s right wing tip struck the runway and started a small fire on the wing, which then started a grass fire at the airport. The aircraft suffered an unknown amount of damage. Both occupants were fatally injured, one of whom was the aircraft owner. The pilots were flying from Georgia to New Mexico, where the owner lived. The Government of Nigeria has ordered the sale of over out-of-service and abandoned aircraft from around that country.
It is not known what aircraft types are involved, but since at least some of the aircraft are rumored to have been dormant for many years, warbird- and vintage-aircraft collectors are scrambling to research the matter. The reporter was riding along as part of an interview he was conducting for a story on the pilot. Helicopter pilots Charlie Hollinger and Jack Kelly have begun the formation of a worldwide association dedicated to the Bell Model 47 helicopter, a versatile workhorse which has been in service for 50 years.
