Helicopters - what are they up to?

Not really a story, so much as a general question – I was in Civic last night and heard some particulary loud Helicopter noises – I’m wondering what they’re in aid of. Did Vice-President Cheney pop down here for a visit, or was there something else going on?

[Ed – There certainly was a lot of unusual night flying over the Inner North last night]

Ah stoopid spell checkers! Me.

But it is the truth about Garran Whingers.

So, is it the tomato, the tabasco or the BBQ that speaks to you, Pandy?

Correction : Have heard from my sauces that Chris S has resigned as Garrn Whinger President.

AC-130: now there’s some serious firepower!

Are we having bad acid trips and flashbacks to Nam? The ‘new’ Goonie Birds (AC130’s instead of the old AC-47’s)used by the Yanks in Iraq and Afghanistan are amazing, even carry a 105mm Howitzer amidships along with the usual assortment of heavy weapons.

It’s nothing to worry about: it was just a couple of “Possums” accompanied by several “Bushrangers” out looking for “NVA”, and calling in “Puff the Magic Dragon” when needed.

yeah I heard it in los belcos as well.

‘the’ consternation…

Roger the Roo has escaped from the Lodge – much to consternation of Canberra’s dog owners.

Chris S will be firing off a protest letter soon I bet!
