      History House, 31st July 2014 The fall of Singapore in February 1942 resulted in the loss of a major allied naval base in the Pacific, including their giant hammerhead dockside crane, completed a few years before in 1938. In the 1930s Australia had already anticipated the need for additional Pacific naval facilities to adequately service the warships of the English, American and Australian navies. Work was almost complete on the new graving dock on Garden Island in Sydney when tenders were called in 1944 for a similar dockside crane as the one lost in Singapore. The construction documents were prepared by Sir William Arrol and Sir Alexander Gibb and Partners in London and Glasgow and the Sydney Steel Company Pty Ltd of Marrickville was the successful tenderer. The crane was completed in 1951 taking seven years to build and is the largest and only crane of its type in the southern hemisphere. In 2007 it was placed on the NSW National Trust ìHeritage at Riskî register. The navy announced in August 2013 that the crane would be demolished to allow additional berthing space for its new navy fleet. Demolition commenced in 2014.

                My sister, clueless with what next to do in life's big journey, decided to join the Navy as part of their Gap Year entry program. She loves it that much that she intends to stay! Here's a (heavily edited) montage of the squillion or so photos I took on the day of her graduation ceremony at HMAS Cerberus in Victoria. A very proud day.

                      Full blog post: http://spotsunknown.com/flight-of-the-huey/ http://hueyvets.com Twitter: http://twitter.com/SpotsUnknown The featured aircraft - the Bell UH-1H Iriquois - is the main reason Vietnam is often referred to as the "helicopter war." And this rag-tag group of Bay Area guys is trying to preserve the unique experience of flying one in combat in America's most lesson-worthy military entanglement. How do they do that? Founder Geoff Carr has sunk a small fortune into acquiring and restoring to combat specs this aircraft, and it serves as a living, flying museum. From its homebase at Bud Field Aviation in Hayward, CA, they buzz veterans events and wow anyone within earshot on the ground. (The Huey makes a distinctive whop-whop-whop that almost anyone can recognize.) What makes this group truly special, though, are the guys themselves. Some served in Vietnam, some are sons of those who served, and some never served at all. But they're all in love with this Huey and what it represents. (Frankly, after spending a day in the sky with it, so am I.) This is a war machine, however. The guys who caretake it struggle with the conflict between their love for the aircraft and their nuanced views of war itself, which are very, well, Bay Area. As I learn more about them for a longer-form web doc, I can appreciate the vets' desire to honor their wartime experiences while refusing to deny their complicated feelings about the politics that forced them into adventures both righteous and heinous.
