  1. RIP, Great Pilot and Great Guy. Doing what he did best.

    • we have no words to describe the enormous loss that this is to the grass-roots aviating community of australia

      please follow the northern star newspaper’s funeral notices; any pilot who has known wayne stuart fisher from his days of barefoot waterskiing through hang gliding through ultralight flight is urged to attend his final celebrations of his life as our flying friend

  2. I was shocked and in disbelief when I heard to news, Wayne was a mentor when it came to me flying Drifters. The aviation community has lost one of it finest comrades, and he will be solely missed.

  3. Rest in peace mate! Wayne took Jade and myself for an epic day filming 10 years ago. Hoping to post the footage somewhere soon..
