Re: RAAF Roulettes free practice air display

i had an experience with the RAAF, quite a few years ago. It was back in the day when the RNZAF had Sky Hawks. I was getting my cows in one afternoon for milking; just ambling along on my ATV and the cows were quite happy with things and they were ambling to the milking shed at their own quiet pace. All was peaceful, when all of a sudden a couple of those Aussie jets with the double tails screamed over the hill, this was followed by a few Sky Hawks doing rolls and things. I reckon I just about had a heart attack! The cows were in the yard in a minute - they just took off! I found out, subsequently there were joint exercises on between NZ  and Australia and at the back of Stratford we were on the flight path from the Air Force Base at Ohakea. We never get to see fighter jets these days unless it's rarely a vampire jet owned by an enthusiast.
