Mick is still keeping his aviation ties and is very happy to be once again  involved with aviation, this time with the RAAF, working for the Aviation, Maritime and Defence Foundation of Australia. The company organises major events throughout Australia for the Government and companies involved in aviation, maritime and defence. He works  specifically for the aviation side of the foundation that organises and runs the bi-annual Australian International Airshow.

The next show is from 1-6 March 2011 which will celebrate the 90th Anniversary of the RAAF, so if you are in Australia in this period  it should be a great and memorable event.
