How could the boys not crash a milestone 500th episode? With a nod to the bulk of their past reports, they present a standard Oz Desk episode with news reviews, discussion and fewer sound effects (mostly :) ). The topics covered today are:
- The RAAF receives their 10th and final C-27J Spartan, throwing a welcome party that included a demonstration grass field landing.
- Air New Zealand are sending their two 787-9s for maintenance to have their Rolls Royce Trent 1000 “Package C” engines upgraded. Fortunately their other 787-9s have the Trent 1000 TEN engines which do not have the same issue with their fan blades.
- Steve’s being kept very busy helping to prepare for the Wings Over Illawarra air show coming up in May where he’ll be helping to run the show, including doing the official opening before handing over commentary to the WOI team of Ando, Grant and Tony Moclair.
