DID they or didnt they run out of fuel to keep the largest gathering of air fighting power ever assembled in Australia in the air on the final day of Pitch Black in Darwin? Australian Defence is playing coy, but the answers they gave to the NT News when the question was put to them sound suspiciously like it. The NT News was expecting a straightforward yes or no response to the question asking was it true that fuel supplies ran too low forcing the final night exercising in Operation Pitch Black to finish earlier than planned? Can you advise if this is correct? Defence was asked. Around 140 aircraft from 16 countries had to be supplied day and night with fuel throughout the duration of the three-week exercise. After a little further prompting for a response to the question, a Defence spokesman said a decision was made to cancel the final wave of night flying to preserve the Royal Australian Air Forces fuel reserves and facilitate an efficient return home for international and Australian units. The Defence spokesman pointed out that during the three weeks of Exercise Pitch Black 2018, over 1120 missions have been flown which equated to approximately 95 per cent mission success rate. By 15 August 2018, exercise directors assessed that all of the training objectives for Pitch Black had been achieved, and the primary goals of offensive and defensive air combat operations, air land integration and importantly, interoperability between GENERAL INQUIRIES: 8944 9900 l CLASSIFIEDS: 8944 9999 l CIRCULATION: 8944 9901 l ADVERTISING: 8944 9800 ONLINE: www.ntnews.com.au l EDITORIAL EMAIL: news@ntnews.com.au l OTHER INQUIRIES: online@ntnews.com.au Fuel reserves concern downs Pitch Black jets nations exceeded, the spokesman responded with. Given the goals had already been achieved and to preserve the Royal Australian Air Forces fuel reserves, a decision was made to cancel the final wave of night flying to facilitate a longer pack-up period and efficient return home for international and Australian units. Defence analysts have previously warned the Federal Government needed to become more interventionist and boost Australias stockpile of fuel to ensure supplies continue to flow to the nations military and commercial sectors in the event of conflict breaking out. The warnings came amid concerns Australia has only one or two weeks worth of fuel reserves and storage infrastructure across the countrys north is not what it should be.
