    Didn't realize one of our famous prime ministers flew in these as navigator and bomb aimer. He died today aged 98. Not a bad run! Gough Whitlam was his name. R.I.P. [​IMG]

    Thanks guys.

    I hadn't realised that Gough had flown in the RAAF until today.

    With all above. I wish that more of our modern politicians had served in the military rather than being professional politicos.

    Rest in peace, Mr Whitlam, and thank you for your service to protect our freedoms.
