That’s pretty cool. The segment is aired in Australia and New Zealand on the Disney Channel. They have had some NZ hot air Ballooning parents on this segment so advertising Canberra could be a good thing.

Budget cuts. Those Super Hornets cost an absolute bomb compared to these babies.

The 18 man squadron crew on the other hand is not going to be cheap at all.

In the old old days before Wright brothers, balloons and airships were used in wars to terrorise the enemy by dropping bombs from up high where bullets from the ground wouldn’t reach.

Guess that was probably the start of the Air Force.
