I had hoped to be there, but on of my jobs requires me to be on a course so I'll be out in the bush instead...maybe next year...

Roulette's are confirmed as is the Qantas fly over but the F14 is notorious in its absence so far , all the high flyers lounge and race clubs seem to be at opposite ends this year, so should be interesting.

I am pretty sure that it would be 2FTS, no point in sending the roulettes over when 2FTS can handle it!

i beleive they have always had 2 (they also have plain red bull choppers), one main one, and a backup - they had a static display chopper in 2008, i beleive that was the secondary chopper

Well, I'm trying to get myself organised for RBAR. I know I'm going to be there both days, just haven't decided which side of the river yet and what times.

Where's everyone else going to be? I know matt_au_70 said he was going to be on the South Perth side, what about others?

Well, I'll be in a hidden place that only has Maps and Radios on Saturday ;)

And Sunday, I will be between North and South side, depending on who needs to be Retrieved (via SJA).
