What is the RAAF’s greatest ever aircraft? The Classic Hornet? F-111? Or perhaps, the Boomerang?

In this week’s episode, host Phil Tarrant and guest Adam Thorn discuss Australian Aviation’s poll to find out which should win out, timed to coincide with our Air Force’s 100th birthday.

Plus, the pair chat about the Network Wars between Qantas and Rex, which have been launching flights on each other’s patches.

Is either airline in the wrong? Or is this just the healthy competition the industry needs right now?
