Defence is letting us all know that they’re going to be playing soldiers with Blackhawk helicopters over their Campbell Park offices on Wednesday afternoon.

The Black Hawks will approach Campbell Park a number of times, from different locations and hover above the building to simulate fast-rope insertion.

So let’s stay cool

What’s Your opinion?

Is there a humanitarian relief flotilla on its way to Campbell Park?

Maybe Ozziechez can borrow one of these Blackhawks so her daughter can fast rope into Mooseheads, past all the bouncers!

I think Blackhawks are reason enough to panic.

I hope their fast rope insertion is better than the Israelis.

“fast-rope insertion”
Hopefully they are practising doing it a little quicker than the Israelis’ performance the other day…
