Last weekend, 18 & 19 May Colac Airfield was raided and six hangers were broken into. Locks just cut off. Not sure of value but many thousand dollars worth of fuel and equipment. Plus damage to aircraft.

 

Some of the items STOLEN

 

Aircraft Parts, Equipment and Accessories.

 

Avgas, aircraft engine oil, many other parts.

 

Aircraft damaged.

 

Items stolen include:

 

Multiple tool boxes and tool bags.

 

Aviation tools

 

Avgas, siphoned, and in jerry cans

 

Jerry Cans, red plastic type

 

Bulk aviation oil in 20 litre jerry cans

 

Aviation Headsets, approx. six sets

 

GPS devices

 

Aviation Radios

 

Gas welding kit in Chrome style case

 

9kg gas bottle

 

ARB Winch

 

HF Radio

 

UHF Radios

 

Piranha Dual Battery System

 

4wd accessories

 

High Pressure water pump and hp hose

 

Space Cases, Blue

 

Air Compressor

 

Spray painting equipment

 

Country airfields seem to be a target and I believe Wangaratta and Bairnsdale  have also been victims.

So sorry to hear about this! There are some real scumbags about.

 

I hope the police manage to catch the little $hits and you get some of the stuff back.

 

All the best,

 

Neil

Take that list to any local pawn shops ASAP. If it looks like the stuff is there call the cops. My dad used to be the janitor of a high school. One time the metal work workshop got raided. Cops told dad to check local pawn shops. The very first one he Went to had the lot!

What would it cost to put in CCTV and how long will they run. At our airstrip we could monitor the single access road, but so far we have never had a problem as we are not really visible fro the roads.

It is a sad reflection on society these days.  Aircraft and equipment was  NEVER under threat until “relatively”  recently - a lot of the equipment is not useable outside aviation -  a basic indication that grubs have entered an industry that was once an honourable profession/hobby.

telstra have an Arlo unit which runs on battery for a few months between charges and records video on movement

 

all done via next G mobile service

 

Around $30/mth for 2 years then $15/mth

 

Can watch live on mobile if you want to too.

I have the Arlo cameras that don’t work off the mobile system and they are an awesome bit of gear. Perfect picture quality and the ability to watch in real time from anywhere with internet is a big plus.

 

their units that are on the mobile system look to be just as good and I intend to get one before too long. I can certainly recommend Arlo as a good quality product.

Agree, they are good kit

 

Older Pro version has lower resolution but battery lasts much longer.

 

Most of Pro2 features don't work unless plugged into power supply.
