Australian Aviation is grateful to all the wonderful people who were able to join the podcast at Wings Over Illawarra. It was a pleasure to catch up with many familiar faces and meet and speak with some new ones as well.

Also, a big thank you to the RAAF public relations team for their great help in organising busy Australian Defence Force (ADF) members to join the podcast amid their duties at the airshow.  Thank you also for the amazing in-cockpit video from both the PC21s and the Hawk.
