Regarding RAAF tech, what are the hopes that Air Force will aquire helos (helicopters) in the future? If you want to know who asked, just because I know some people do, and some have to, I'm a grade 9 student moving to Adamstown end-of-year. (BTW I'm a RAAF kid so I some stuff.)

I also plan on ADFA, after finshing grade 12 in Adamstown, and this was just an interesting topic Dad never really had much info on, besides the fact that Army pretty much controls all land-based helos.

Thanks so much for a response (if I get one).

A Commemorative Service marked the 73rd Anniversary of the Battle of Bismarck Sea at RAAF Base Richmond last Thursday. The event commemorated the service of numbers 30 and 22 Squadron personnel, together with the associated American Forces in the Battle of the Bismarck Sea, 2 - 4 March 1943. The battle resulted in a victory that removed any likelihood that Japan would be able to regain the initiative in New Guinea and therefore invade Australia.
