You should stop by and take a gander if you're close.

Yeah I'm going to Sat or Sun I live in the city so I'll just hop on my push bike and go have a look.

Flew over her today a couple of times on our way in and out of Sydney.

Very impressive. I like the way the other ships "stand guard" in the bay.

We kept getting a traffic alert on the TCAS every time we passed over the top. They need an altitude read out on their transponder! :P

In the unlikely event you run into any pilots from VFA-27 Royal Maces, tell em I said G'day.

I saw it as it was sailing down the coast on its way into Sydney as I overflew on the way to Canberra.

I'm taking my little boy in on Sunday for a gander but it wont be open for public inspections unfortunately.

I'll try and get some photos but my mate took his wicked zoom lens back so i'm left with my old clunker of a thing.

My brother served on that boat as corpman, IIRC when they were in port with the USS Cole when it got hit.
