Strolling up Mt Ainslie this morning I was excited to see three FA/18 Hornets approaching from the south. They made quite a sight as they turned away to the north west and with my 20/20 vision I was just able to track them as they made a long orbit way to the south before a single pass east to west along the lake and then… bye!
I guess the boffins are only able to authorise such a timid display of airliner-style flying in case Mr and Mrs Citizen down at the lake claim that their progeny are traumatised by the sight and sounds of military hardware.
If that’s the best they can do better they stay home and work out ways to keep the cotton wool wrapped around the noisy minority.
