Watched a program on Nat geo last night about Bert Rutan and the development of his space vehicle, what vision and determination, what dedication.
Then I lay awake and thought where is the vision and determination gone in Australia, not just in aviation but in all areas of commerce, except perhaps for the legal profession.
Something like the space plane would never happen here, CAsA would kill it off before it even started.
Then I thought not just CAsA, the drive,focus and dedication of those employed in the process would be killed off by the unions.
The lawyers would have shut them down after an unfortunate industrial accident, and don't even mention the OH&S people!!..not a high vis on site anywhere.
Are we destined to be Coolies for the Chinese?
