I do like a good lenticle. Is that coming or going?
On the way out I think.
Today’s East of Jindy, more a cousin to lenticular, thermal or cumulos wave clouds. The upper wind treating the cloud like a mountain range and forming a wave over the top with the tell tale lenticular cap cloud form to mark it.
Re the OP. We used to hunt them down to get good wave soaring conditions over the Snowy Mountains, ex Polo Flat airfield in Cooma North. One of our crew hit nearly 29,000 feet over the Main Range using one of the wave systems that the lenticular cloud symbolises the peak of.
Here are some examples...

Winds up in the lee of the MR (Southern end of the Park) and so too is the mid level winds. Taken from Dalgety just now.
Gees that is pretty good. Best I heard about was the wave over cenrtal NSW caused by cyclone Tracy all those years ago. Lots of international pilots a bit gobsmacked by what they experienced.
Only diamond my mother did not get was the height one, and only because we did not have oxygen.
