This message has just come through from Sunshine Coast Airport and is supplied for the information of all residents:
Sunshine Coast Regional Airport (SCRA) Management found out about this today and even though they are not involved they thought they would drop BeCA a line in case we got any inquiries.
SCRA have been made aware of a QFES field exercise today at the Caloundra Aerodrome from 1700 – 1930 at the War Museum. The exercise will simulate an aircraft on fire and will take place within the museum compound only. The fire will be a gas fire and should generate little if any smoke and is timed to take place after business hours.
QFES, Qld Police Service and Qld Ambulance Service will be in attendance.
Mark Campbell from the Caloundra Fire Station has arranged this exercise and is the contact for any enquiries, media or otherwise. His number is 0421 211 653.
