We had a great time, but it was a nightmare for the guys who had all the approvals to organize, we only got the final go ahead at literally the last minute. I'm not sure it will happen again. Australia is so far behind the rest of the world in some respects.

Thank again for the great pics.

Look at the bright side of things, at least you 'DID' get all the approvals and now it's been done there is a precident that shows it did happen and all without any issues.
