Page 3 Girl



Our lovely Page 3 Girl this issue is Aneliese Blair who is currently serving with 33 Squadron at Amberley as a Crew Attendant on the Airbus KC-30A tankers. Crew Attendants (CREWATT) provide safety, comfort and in-flight service to passengers and crew on aircraft operated by both 33 Sqn and 34 Sqn (VIP). When configured, the KC-30A tanker can carry up to 270 passengers and employs up to 8 Crew Attendants per flight.


Aneliese joined the RAAF in 2010 from her home town of Mornington (Vic), went to Wagga to do her rookies, then followed three postings to learn the trade, first to Townsville for a Combat Survival course, then down to Adelaide for Aviation Medicine, then over to Richmond for an Airman Aircrew Initial Course: (Click HERE for more info on the Crew Attendant mustering).


Aneliese has signed on for 4 years, (things have changed) loves her job and thinks she will stay with the RAAF for a while yet.

40 Appy


We had the photo below in our last issue and we were unsure of any names Terry Haebich and Matt Oliver came to the rescue with a few, we’re still a bit short though. Matt says “The photo is of 40 RAC, though am not convinced it was March 86. They commenced in the January of that year and it seems a little quick for six of them to have been made up to Leading Apprentice. The female is Megan Bender and she was the first female Radio TradeApp (there were two female TechApps that started the year prior (4 TAC??)”.


Anyone know where Megan is these days??
