the site of the fastest gust of wind ever recorded. Flown in and out of the island many times. It's kind of an interesting place, actually. At first blush, it doesn't look like much, but it has a history and some unique wildlife and now, some big plans in store for what WAS some sort of wildlife refuge. And yeah, it's got these big, termite hills. It's off the west coast of Australia and was my jumping-off point for a year, while shooting off WA. I used to fly a Charter jet from Perth to the Island, where I'd hop a chopper to my ship.
