New Adelaide Control Tower
The new control tower at Adelaide Airport is now only months away from having complete control as the old tower is phased out. The two towers are currently in "mimic" mode where the old tower is still in control of all traffic and the new tower mimics the old with regards to all traffic. At a later date the old tower will go into "Ghost" mode and the new tower will have executive control. Once all is confirmed correct, the old tower will be phased out.
New facilities include state-of -the-art touch-screens that can be customised by the operator. The new digital technology replaces the older paper strip system and all operators can be kept up-to-date with all other stations on-screen.
More coverage as the process continues.
Barossa Air Show 2013
Last week the Barossa Airshow was held at Rowland Flat. As usual there was plenty to see and do at this great South Australian event. Once again the St Jakobi School were the benificiaries with the school donating to the Make a Wish Foundation.
Special guests included: Chris Sperou & Warren Stewart, The Roulettes, Tony Blair and Paul Andronicou. Again the Yaks put on a great display and various vintage aircraft performed fly-bys.
This year we had the chance to talk with FLTLT Shaun Rajzbaum (Roulette 7)...
Chris Sperou Aerobatics at Barossa 2013...
This is a great video of Chris' show not only from outside but inside the cockpit as well.
We will have some amazing Chris Sperou footage later this week. Don't miss out!
