Brissie to Cooly in a Concorde, down the beach at 50ft, now that would be fun. Thanks Motley.
I know it's Bull.... , but i need some hard stuff to shove up their nose's. The only foreign carriers i know of are BA, SQ and CX, all now ceased their bases.

No external bases.

Its possible they are EK freighter pilots who live in Brisbane and commute.

The Austronauts hold the monopoly on the freighter, not enough Dingo’s to hump in the sand pit I’m told.

All we needed at EK were those Austronaught Blue shirts, then we would have been already to be inducted into the space programme.
