- The RAAF, RNZAF and Air New Zealand have been providing relief assistance following earthquakes in Sumatra and a tsunami in Samoa.
- Australia and New Zealand are discussing a trans-Tasman partnership for a rapid reaction force to help provide humanitarian and disaster response services for the Pacific area.
- RAAF’s KC-30As will have an 18 month delay and won’t commence in service until mid-2010 as the first aircraft is required to support testing & validation flights back in Spain.
- Qantas is being criticised for using foreign butter on its aircraft.
Meanwhile, don’t forget to support Matt Hall as he’s about to race once again this weekend!
