yes, was going to say to you the other night about a new thread as the other one was going off topic. So with all your governing powers as our noble leader, will you get an official invite for when they arrive etc.

This just in from Richard Jackson:
"This announcement about the next milestone with the T-6C project was shared around the RNZAF today:
Today, the first of the RNZAF’s newest additions to our fleet, two T-6C Texan IIs, depart Wichita for their long journey home. Preparations are under way for a welcome ceremony in Auckland on 21 AUG 14, followed by their arrival in Ohakea on 22 AUG 14. Today highlights all the hard work and dedication that has gone into the Pilot Training Capability Project by all the team members, including MoD, RNZAF and Beechcraft; delivering an excellent capability on time and within budget.
The route is interesting (approx): Kansas - Ottawa - Labrador - Greenland, Iceland, UK , Italy, Crete, Jordan, UAE, India, Thailand, Singapore, Bali, Aussie - Darwin and Cairns - Honiara SI, New Caledonia, to Whenuapai."
Hmm I wonder out loud, if that is the surprise for 28th September, I doubt it though... although it would be great for a discussion point and even a speaker to lead in about the decision process and its performance - now that would be a draw card!!
