Topic: In this episode of the WONZ Show we continue the story of Noel Kruse’s aviation career. He talks about his time as a pilot, Flight Commander and then Commanding officer with No. 38 Squadron RAAF, flying the venerable transport aircraft, the DHC Caribou – including more seat of the pants flying in Papua New Guinea. And Noel also talks about some of his ground roles, including a posting as an Education Officer, teaching skilled RAAF tradesmen how to pass on their knowledge to younger airmen. And we hear the superb story of Noel’s last proper operational flight in the RAAF, bringing a Caribou home, around the world, from Pakistan to RAAF Richmond in Australia.
