10 Mar 2017 17:08 | Anonymous

On Thursday 9 March 2017, Group Captain Pete Mitchell DSC, OAM gave a short account of his experiences commanding 75 Squadron RAAF on operations in the Middle East.  Speaking informally in the ADC Mess at Weston Creek, Pete described vividly a day of flying operations and sketched some of the lessons learned on the tour.  

This was the first time USI of the ACT has presented an operationally focussed speaker in the Mess ahead of the principal speaker.  Similar events focussing on maritime and land operations are planned for later in 2017.
