So who's going to get the last white-tailed C17?
And then there was 1: Qatar takes 4 of the last 5 white-tail C-17s. So much for theories that NZ was getting some :)

Onya Deb! Great to see you're still going strong & on the way to another record. Remember when we interviewed her back in 2010? Also pretty cool to see Dom whom we last caught up with at the Flight Experience 737 sim around the same time :)PS: Yes, Deb is Australia's first female airline pilot, not just first female pilot - typical media headline error

Third place finish for Matt Hall but with Paul Bonhomme out of the final, Matt's now tied equal first on championship points. Woo hoo! :) Next race is over the July 4th & 5th weekend.

Matt Hall has made it through to the round of 8 (snuck in as "Fastest Loser") but that means he's paired up with Paul Bonhomme who's been in amazing form all year. Matt has to beat Paul to get through to the Final 4. Far out!

It's been a while since we posted anything here but that's mostly because we've been too busy running around working. Mostly we've been posting on Facebook & Twitter. We'll see if we can make time to cross post content over here too :)
