I was aboard a KC30A RAAF flight yesterday and we flew over the Daly Mouth and Fog Bay. Every time i tried to get a photo of the river, the view was blocked up to 20 F/A18’s who kept popping up besides us to refuel 8) 8)

Thanks fellas. Im still buzzing. Its the 2nd time in 2 years that ive been invited by RAAF onto the base and their jets. its really funny because its classed as a domestic flight, they still book you in, check contents of bags and they even have the Flight attendants - RAAF personnel dressed in cammo of course.
ive got to say its the best in-flight entertainment ever!!

Post Posted: Sun Jun 25, 2017 9:32 am    Post subject: Re: Daly Mouth and Fog Bay from the air - with jets

to be honest i didnt really time it. we were cruising at 600 km/h and i was really concentrating on the jets more than the landscape.
last year we just cruised over the Adelaide river area and it was just a flight for us in the media squad. there were 4x US F16 and only 2 x FA18 and they did the refuel and left.
This year we were up for 4 1/2 hrs and actually part of the exercise. each jet refuelled 5 times. they do their manouvers at full noise with afterburners on for most of the time.
I was flat out keeping the jets in focus/frame etc and then you would notice the landscape below had changed.
there are only a few seconds between the time when one jet would pull out and another would hook up.

these fellas were the best of the best and the equivalent to the US Top Gun school. only one had to take 2 attempts to insert the probe. all others just flew straight in. There was a tv show on last night about the US boys and most had to do 3 attempts.
If the aussie boys dont get it first time everytime, its a carton each.

we had the FA18 display pilot on board with us to talk about the finer details of tanking. he sat down with each of us and we had a one-on-one discussion.
very interesting people.

in the 4hr exercise, the tanker transferred 18 tonnes of fuel to the jets

That's pretty amazing, would have been a great spectacle to be a part of.

This was Ex Diamond Storm – went for the whole of June just for RAAF - it was our equivalent of the yank top gun school. these were the best of our best. The yanks have one still going on and then we have Talisman Sabre for the whole of July. Still trying to get into TS

My family went out all day yesterday and late into the night. When my son finally landed one of these amazing creatures. It’s a very young “Granddaughter” which is closely related to the “Grandson’s” that have also been landed over the years. This granddaughter measured in at 45cms and 3kgs (6lb 6oz) in weight. Being of legal size, my son decided to keep this one at home to see if it will grow the same as his last “Granddaughter”, Now “Granddad” needs to buy another pink rod. Life’s good.
