Nothing here says Northrop won a tender or that the aircraft procurement was subject to a tender. In both cases they weren't . I am not questioning that Northrop have a six year contract to...

Not doubting they are doing it TBM. I know for a fact (not rumour) that they did not win the tender that was run for the managing contractor and two other companies were shortlisted.

We should get over this RAAF thing. From my experience in recent years, the guys out of the RAAF have been pretty good. Some even from years past such as Chris H in the Melbourne Airline office was a...

Morrison on Friday spelt out that they were offering to shut down the detention centres if they can get the TPV's through the senate.

Makes sense but it will bring the gravy train to a halt.

The reality though is that there are a number of reasons that you may have to land other than just fuel as well. This...

Subversive,

I dont know what mechanism was used to contract the aircraft with 34 Sq. The point I make is that it wasn't either main party doing the hiring.

Yes it is between 147 and 20000 Sunfish. I have heard about 16,000!!.

Ramble on,

I suspect they probably wished you hadn't as well. Evidently they are very particular who they employ.
