Nearly five months since the event took place.
I think the chubby pilot will have shed a few pounds in detention.
Perhaps a food package for Christmas?

Iím sure he has meet a few new businesses associates at the retreat.

Probably very fluent in Tok Pisin now and has a taste for SP and the local talent!

Didn’t the High Comm. rescue him from prison and put him in some comfortable refugee camp? Maybe he’s squealing in gratitude already. Wonder if the Aerostar at Redcliffe has any connection with this lot?

The pilot of the Redcliffe airport snatch was charged in Brisbane Magistrates Court today, released on bail.
Mark Nolan. fairly well known. If he squeals too loudly then ......
CH 9 News.
Wonder if there is a connection to the PNG heist?

Two Kina Meri ?
Struth Kagamuga! Are they still only Two Kina? Hasn't inflation upped the price yet?

Not that I'd know anything about that sort of Lady though..

I think someone has the drug running pilots mixed up.
This thread is about PNG.

The more recent event you refer to is the Aerostar at Redcliffe.

The slight drift in thread was in response to "lucille's" tag...

Time stands still at the Aero Club.

Like the speed of light, two Kina is a constant in every equation at POM. The only variable would be the number of SP stubbies consumed.

The good old days of throwing down a few SP handles at the dero club, having a sleep then getting into a Bandit at 4am delivering newspapers to Lae, Hagen and Goroka. Single pilot IFR with no autopilot.

I got busted in Cairns by a CASA PNG AWI loading a steam roller engine into the Bandit! AWI was a good mate, hence I got on with the job done.

It's amazing what used to be carried in that particular Bandit.

PNG AIC has apparently issued an interim report into the accident. Wingtip apparently torn off as a result of clipping a tree on landing, I assume it was the outer fibreglass section which is reasonably large on a C model 402.

Aborted take off due to lik lik ROC! Obviously old mate knew he was probably going to die or get seriously injured if he continued with the take off.

Rumours abound, that the RAAF C130 that flew to Port Moresby yesterday, 14th Jan, from down south was on the ground POM for a very short time then departed to Darwin. Loose chat in POM say the druggie pilot was being transferred to the Howard Springs facility for CV19 quarantine prior to a Court appearance etc.

I highly doubt the rumour is true, to many SP beers last night at the Car Club?

Your rumour may be right. What sane person would want to serve a prison term in PNG? Odds are that many beans are being spilled in exchange for a deportation and subsequent trial in Oz with probably a very light sentence of time already served.

Probably even end up as the resident C402 endorsement training specialist. 🤣

If correct, it would be a slap on the face for the other Australians who need to pay thousands of dollars to get back home to Australia, also doubt he would need to pay the $2500 quarantine bill.

Let him rot at Bomana.
