|"the plane, the plane" - remember that little chap?|
An A319 Airbus chartered by the Australian Customs flew over the whaling area for about ten minutes just after 0900 on Monday. The plane flew low enough to be easily identified but did not make any known radio contact with the SSCS MS Bob Barker, it is unknown if the Australian Customs plane was in contact with the JWF.
What this will accomplish if anything is also unknown so it looks as if this overflight is some type of Australian PR, it is also unknown if there will be any other overflights. As one can see lots of unknowns in all of this which tends to lead one to believe it is nonsense and wasteful spending of Australian taxpayers monies.
The Australian Government will not confirm some of the communications claims of the SSCS coming from the MS Bob Barker so it appears Hammarstedt is trying to be the next "Wats-his-name" making exaggerated claims.
