"Yeah - -
that should show the VASI so that's the VASI. Could be it's that foreign kind of VASI - - shows too high, I guess."

The words of the co-pilot of a PANAM 707 that came in too high for runway 25 at Sydney in 1971. The aircraft landed long and slid off the far end of 25 into the mud.
In those days it was termed a Pilot Error accident. That term although apt, is banned now due to political correctness and that sort of nonsense.

Which Australian ports still have Vasi or T-Vasi?
