    Hello all.

    I live in Hobart, Tasmania and I've been a WW2 aircraft freak since I was a little kid. I did 6 years in the RAAF as a gas turbine and airframe technician at 76SQN on Macchis and Hawk 127s. I'm now in my final year of a science degree majoring in mathematics and computer science.

    I got to fly fighters quite a few times whilst in the RAAF (from the backseat) and it was terrific fun. I went on a couple of low level strike training missions through the Great Dividing Ranges in Hawks and they were a highlight.

    Cheers, Neilster

    Lucky b#stard, the best I got was some low level flying in a Blackhawk.

    Super stuff Neil sounds like you've been a busy bloke. I've been doing a bit of digging for a mate whose brother inlaw flew Wellingtons and lancs in the RAAF 460 squadron very hairy stuff from the accounts I've read.

    Message for Wildcat,

    I can not respond to you about the Balipapan question on that link as it will not load for me. I just get a blank background.

    Please PM me if you can.

    Regards

    Rick Maccullagh
