Aww I donrt believe it, I wont, dont upset me just yet please!

Supposed to have F35 here by now, an operational let down not an airshow one tho. So we all have to live to 2019 it seems. Williamtown upgrades should be nearly finished if not so, so cant be far away.

However, no Chinook yet again, I do not understand the hatred of these machines. I will not cop operational
requirements yet again, stick one broken one on the back of a truck, Im sick of not seeing Chinooks at Avalon.

Spartan Static? that is a huge let down, if that is true, it can only be CASA who gets worse by the minute. It is staffed by rancid people
who look to the UK more than the USA for advice re airshows. Recent events in the UK will put a very heavy blanket of overbearing safety at ASDU
in 2017 I think. It is the way they think, it wil all be higher and slower and further away. We wil be lucky to see that chopper with the ping pong balls close up.

I am looking forward to T150 which will have RAAF rules in place and with the Yanks thrown in, it will be an event not to be missed.

ASDU 2017 needs a huge drawcard, I cant see one this time around.

Fighters from UK, I do not understand why we dont get them here, has anyone ever asked? I wonder.
I got 9 months, I might write my first letter to the Queen.

Frustrating that they would come all the way to Asia & skip Australia, again...

I posted this a few weeks ago, however the post went missing, so here goes again with take 2.

First civil performer confirmation for the 2017 Airshow is Australia's very own Paul Bennet Airshows, with the Sky Aces Aerobatic Team and the Wolf Pitts Pro.
