Steve and Grant have finally finished running around to various events in Australia (for now 🙂) and have (finally!) put together a “real” Australia Desk. They discuss their experiences at the AusFly event in Narromine then quickly review a few headlines:

  • Qantas made a profit???
  • An alliance between Air New Zealand & Virgin Australia???
  • Elvis isn't coming back to Australia??? (the Skycrane, not the dead singer)
  • Army's CH-47 Chinooks have returned to Australia from the Middle East
  • Qantas did a screening of the Planes movie during a flight
  • First flight of Jetstar's first 787

The boys then discuss a recent AirProx between two Qantas A330s.

All that plus a shout-out to Aunt Benet’s piloting skills and news that Grant’s appearing in the latest Australian Pilot magazine from AOPA as Kathy Mexted has written an article about flying in a balloon with Grant and Kreisha Ballantyne (the editor) has allowed it to be printed. Who knew?
