Thats all we can muster. Most of our gear is deployed in the Middle East. Its not even what was in a scene of Top Gun, but its not what you got but rather what you do with it.

This could almost be the last public flight of the ole Pig, the F111.

I was robbed. The f18 didnt do a lap of the bay, first time ever. Id reckon due to the cost of fuel. RAAF just couldnt spare a few grand to do a decent lap.

I got to see jack shite, apart from this. I was hoping for an explosion but no luck.
