Re: #Official Defence Thread

Am so glad that capability won.
These will be the most capable ships in the RAN - and extremely effective ASW frigates.
Funny that subs and ASW frigates will be built next to each other - basically designed to destroy each other.

Re: #Official Defence Thread

My feeling is that the Contemporary has greater pubic support outside the herp derp of AdelaideNow comments who equate anything to do with art as some champagne sipping elitist thing.
Am really worried about that pubic support.

Re: U/C: Electrification & Upgrade of the Adelaide Rail Network

Dudley Park is an interesting station. Yes it is in the middle of backstreet suburbia. But just remember that this whole area (Churchill Road) has been rezoned as ‘Urban Corridor’ and it’s main selling point is that it’s close to public transport. You take this station away and it defeats the purpos...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

Flew out with China Southern yesterday and have to rate them pretty high - well on par with Cathay anyways.
When we were taxiing out though, another China Southern had just pulled up to the terminal.
Was this a redirect? Charter? Or the norm?
And since when has China Southern gone to six weekly?

I must be the only one on this forum that actually likes this building.
