I heard a story last night about Bob Ansett from John Elliott.  John said that if Bob ever got a letter sent to him that had his name miss spelt....he would just rip it up and throw it out.  "I never got that letter...!?"

Good onya Bob!

That is a great paint Matt!

The Dak I spent most time in started out as VJ-ORB. We did the gun alignments for the new West Head Gunnery Emplacement as well as alignments for ships coming out of refit from Willytown. She had a long life and ended up as N2-23, with NW on the tail fin and 801 0n the nose. 

I did a Show Card and Ticket Writing course at the Nowra Tech College and helped a bloke named Prof Edwards paint the ROYAL AUSTRALIAN NAVY on the fuselage. I reckon I had a good time.
