May Club Outing: RAAF Amberley Open Day

Hello Members,

A warm May morning greeted us for the run out to the RAAF base.

We arrived in good time and after the induction to allow us through the gates, we were escorted to the heritage hangars. There’s a lot of history in those buildings with all the old fighter planes to the small helicopters which took the injured off to hospital and all the information boards telling us what went on in each war.

I personally liked seeing the F111, which we’ve seen a few times during Riverfire in Brisbane performing the dump and burn. If you didn’t get to see them flying and doing the dump and burn you missed something that only the Aussie pilots could do. The yanks weren’t permitted to do the dump and burn in America.

They had a small cafe where we brought lunch. There was also a shop with all kinds of things that you could purchase. A really interesting day, if you didn’t get to come along make a plan to get there sometime.

See you all at the next run to Wivenhoe Dam, remember it’s Pointscore Round 2.

Drive safely,

John & Linda Gladstone
