Some Top Enders will breathe a sigh of relief as the last jet touched down at 9.15pm on Thursday. The roaring noises causes much discussion each time the exercise comes to the NT. Others saw them as the sound of freedom. Alice Springs-resident Nick Byrne wrote to the Northern Territory News to share his story of survival during WWII. He was living at the Burnside homestead, near Brocks Creek about 130km south of Darwin as a child in 1940s when a Japanese Zero flew towards the old RAAF Fenton Aerodrome. We turned our kerosene hurricane lamps down so as not to be spotted by the Japanese pilot and bombed, he said. Tonight, 68 years later, in my beaut cabin at the Darwin Airport Resort, listening to the Pitch Black jets flying overhead, although much more noisy than the Japanese Zero, I find it very comforting knowing that our young pilots are training in these incredible new machines, to ensure that what happened to Darwin in 1942 will not happen again.
