    Not a sighting I know, just a point of interest ..and a few days late. On Saturday night I heard Polair 61 call 6AR on the radio to direct firies to a deliberately lit fire in bush near some community centre (didn't catch the suburb). I thought it was good to hear the services sharing resources like that.

    he would have had to have his lights on... legal requirement.

    as for why he was there.... not a clue

    Hey Naf - I can verify - there are a few occaisions where Polair has the okay to not have no exterior lights on - during parts of an operation.

    I've seen this a few times especially in the summer time - at night - if it is tracking a vehicle etc - it doesn't always have it's nav lights on - once it's finished doing what it's tasked for, then all lights come on again.
