    Thanks Guys . I really hadn't noticed the milestone. (approaching). Flying is not like lifting weights. You have to think more and assess yourself in an honest fashion. . That's not easy. No alcohol tonight. I'm pretty much getting off it. Better quality, less often. (special occasions) REAL ones... support Tyabb. Getting rid of that facility would be BS and must not happen. Australia was built on aviation.....Cheers and thanks. Nev

    Would it help to shove this up the Council's nose? https://vhd.heritagecouncil.vic.gov.au/places/12650 The Butler Hangar is of significance to the State of Victoria for its rarity and uniqueness, and its historical, architectural and scientific (technical) significance. The Butler Hangar is historically significant as a place in which Australia's most advanced military plane, the CA 15, was developed. The hangar is of architectural and scientific (technical) importance as an intact example of a prefabricated and transportable hangar. It was designed in such a way as to permit dismantling and re-erection and for this reason, its removal to another aerodrome or site of aeronautical association, can be entertained. And these two documents: https://www.mornpen.vic.gov.au/files/assets/public/new-website-documents/building-amp-planning/heritage/docs/strategic_heritage_mornington_study_pt1.pdf https://www.mornpen.vic.gov.au/files/assets/public/new-website-documents/building-amp-planning/heritage/docs/strategic_heritage_mornington_study_pt2.pdf

    I suspect it might be related to the fact that they use trees and such for cover and camouflage to train in a realistic fashion. It's obvious that he was too high. If he was low enough, he wouldn't have hit the wire.
