More than 1000 year 8 and 9 students have been taking part in judging days around the country. Pictured are Dripstone Middle School students with their bridge. This Friday the Darwin heat will take place at the school. The battle will be played out in front of bridge experts, with bridges judged on workmanship, creativity and visual appeal. Aerial search is on course Air observing is a demanding task, requiring intense concentration THE NT is a big place and if a person, plane or boat gets lost it can take scores of people hours or even days to find them. Air observation searches can help, especially in remote areas or out at sea, and a group of Darwin SES volunteers got a taste of what its like to be involved in one when they took part in a course last weekend. Run by the Australian Maritime Safety Authority, who SES volunteers often help in searches, the course covered air searches where aircraft fly at low altitudes in the hope of spotting something. It also involved some theory, such as the role of AMSA and beacon detection. SES observers play the essential role of looking for the target, which can often be difficult to see, AMSA Chief Executive Officer Graham Peachey said. Air observing is a demanding task, requiring intense concentration over extended periods of time. We go through what objects look like from different heights and then test volunteers to spot an object, such as a buoy at sea. The course also covered what to do in an emergency at sea. We go through staying warm and staying together as a group in the water, and then we drop a life raft in and they have to inflate it, Mr Peachey said. More than 480 SES volunteers across 22 locations throughout Australia are trained as air search observers. They can be tasked to help in searches across the country as well as overseas, such as the Solomon Islands, Papua New Guinea and New Caledonia.
