Myself and 19 other cadets went down to RAAF Base Pearce. Number 2 Flying Training School were graduating off PC-9 turboprop planes. Air Vice Marshal Haig was present to review the graduating squadron. Both RAAF and RAN officers were there. Awards and wings were given up. For me and the other cadets, it was the most painful experience in our lifes! It was worth it though, there were about half a dozen low level fly pasts, with both PC-9s and Hawk 127's. When it was finally over, we were marching back to the mess, when 4 Hawks came over at 75 feet, all with afterburners on http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif I've never head anything so loud in my life! There was also a RAN Seahawk, and they let us climb over it http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif Thanks guys, you're legendary http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
After it all, 2 other blokes n a girl went into the city, because Stuey (the driver) had to get his suit done for the upcoming ball. So we went to Dome and got some ice coffees. It was yum. After that, it was the newsagent and finally time to go home. Which took about an hour. So here we are in a 70's Holden Commodre, with all types of music absolutely BLARING. Ah it was great. The phrase 'you get back what you put in' was never more correct. I got home, showered, then chucked my hat under some encyclopedia's to flatten it, and spent about 20 minutes re-polishing my boots. That done, I got myself another ice coffee and came on here.

How did everyone else spend their Rememberance Day's?

Oh and btw its my Nannas birthday too http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

At my school we're having a speaker. This man just got back from Iraq 3 weeks ago. I think he's being called up again soon. He's a national guardsman, a PART TIME national guardsman. I feel bad that they made him do that. But I want, greedily, to hear the firsthand experience. I'll tell you how it is when we finish.
