Roulette visit

These photos were taken in early November, when the Roulettes came through for fuel on the way to Perth for the Red Bull Air Race. The weather that day wasn't too good, and they couldn't make it into Ceduna, so they turned around and came back to Port Augusta for the night. I helped them move the aircraft around as our tug was set up for the standard Pilautus nosewheel, and these were after all the little brothers to our aircraft.
The PC9 is a wonderful little aeroplane to fly, and I've been lucky enough to have flown one back in 1994. It was lovely and aerobatic. Essentially, they have the same engine as we do, but they only weigh about half of our aircraft, so they of course go VERY nicely thank you very much....
