Pelican Takes Out F-111

Australia is in the process of decommissioning their fleet of F-111 Fighter Bombers. Yesterday a Pelican helped them on their way.

RIP Mr Pelican. What a way to go. Sucked into a jet engine.

All the things that designers plan for, but a pelican at 900 metres is probably not one of them. I wonder if they show up on radar.

Serves the bstd right - he gave me real grief over at Monkey Mia while I was trying to feed the dolphins.

Pelicans were one of those markers that made me feel that I really was in Australia. I mean they fly around and you can see them when you walk along the beach. Fantastic birds.
