Episode 299: A Cirrus CAPS deployment gets Grant on the Radio

The boys are back & recovered from working at Wings Over Illawarra 2014 last week and they’re reporting on the Australian Federal Government’s recent approval to purchase an additional 58 F35s, taking our total confirmed purchase to 72 aircraft.

Meanwhile, a brand new Cirrus SR22 had an engine failure over the Blue Mountains and the pilot deployed the Cirrus Airframe Parachute System (CAPS) to land in the front yard of a house. The landing caused a bit of a media sensation and also led to Grant being quoted in a newspaper article and interviewed on radio 2UE.

Hopefully it won’t all go to his head but we do hear that he’s been taking notes from Rob Mark on the path to media stardom…
