Helicopters – what are they up to?

simbo 7 January 2008 14

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!

Nah, I was about 6 when my dad got back from Vung Tau….

The AC130s are awesome, but the old daks could put some lead on the ground.

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.

Goonie Birds…

Nasty nasty stuff those old Goonie bigs when kitted out…

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.

‘the’ consternation…

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

Bad, evil, naughty, nasty helicopters!

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