That case was dissmissed when the judge said "Anyone who suffers mental anguish because his beer isn't cold deserves to be certified.And in other news.....a popular law firm followed the emergency vehicles and has assisted Farmer Dave of Maclagan in launching legal proceedings against the ADF for the mental anguish suffered because his beer was no longer ice cold after the power was interupted.
On the other hand if the loss or power killed 250,000 chickens in the nearby broiler shed the ADF would be out of pocket.
The best air show I've ever been to was at East Sale, well out into country Victoria and away from the hierarchy. we were allowed much closer to the runway than at Avalon, so the vision was great, and a sequence of fighters started, each one coming in low from the east, pulling up into a loop and departing to the west all were pretty much the same to watch. The Mustang climbed higher than the older aircraft it followed, a vampire flew higher than the Mustang and so on until the FA18 which went vertical until it became a speck and then came down and departed. It came in again and did the same thing followed by some lower moves, then it disappeared. The sequence was too short so I started scanning each end of the runway expecting something else. The crowd had turned their backs and were happily chatting along with my wife and kids. Finally I saw a little speck in the distance right down on the deck I warned my wife, but she hadn't turned when it went past with a sound like an acetylene torch backfiring multiple times but at about 10 times the noise factor. The kids screamed, my wife started crying, and most of the other women were the same along the strip. For me it was the best display I'd ever seen, because all the others had been sub sonic and a bit of a let down. When the pilot flew off the end of the strip he went over a market garden, breaking all the hot house glass. The ADF replaced the glass, and announced they would not be doing that sort of display again.
