The atmosphere in YSCB is appalling. Shitty conditions would be nice, but the conditions are beyond shitty. The worst smoke haze Iíve ever seen (and smelt and tasted).

Will be interesting to hear what the ACTís chief medical officer says about the health effects of hanging around breathing this shit.
That was the point Lead, it seems more WHS related rather than a flying limitation.
Despite Little Napoleon enjoying some a beach side interlude, resplendent in swimwear, he is responsible for the health and safety.
(Exactly why he wants three delivery flights classified as "research" -WHS defence if increased sickness results)
