Wrights Air at William creek is the go.

I have done it twice, once when it was full and once this year when it was only 20% full, both were spectacular trips.

The LEYC has the latest conditions, also call Wrights for an update.

Consider a chopper instead of a fixed wing plane. You see heaps more because you effectively sit in a bubble.

We took a ride last year at Easter in 2011.

We saw water in Lake Eyre at Curdimurka two weeks ago from the road. Thats about 100Ks up the Oodnadatta Track towards Oodnadatta from Marree.

Not sure if you are going that way. Best ofg luck. I just watched that ABC video of Lake Eyre and the floods of a couple of years ago. I felt like packing the car and going back.

They were still taking flights over Lake Eyre from William Creek when we went through there on the same trip.

Cheers

Phil
