Another big edition this month! David Byrne updates the issues in his President’s Report, including the acquisition of a Schneider Baby IV glider; there are progress reports on the restorations in progress with a new report from Chris Doudy’s on the Aero 145; some great photos of F-111C A8-132 by RAAF photographer Ray Bennell with his story of how he took the featured photo; part 2 of SAAM’s history, which takes us through the expansion years 1991-2005 ending with our relocation to the present site; Langdon Badger contributes to the Epic Flight Centenary (!); and some snippets of interesting RAAF history from WGCDR Ian Gibson. Should be a great read!!
