It wasn't a "nothing statement" at the time. To say the industry was fractured, and has remained so since, would be an understatement.

The place doesn't even exist now.
No wonder. LSP, incessant and completely unnecessary changes in procedures turning pilots off, user-pays, Affordable Safety, dictatorial attitudes, what did you expect? Of course there are other issues like drink-driving and smoking rules, but from the early 90s, the "industry" was going only one way. Down the gurgler. And instead of a united front engaging Canberra, what happened? Crash through or crash. Yep, crash it was.
