Exercise Bullseye Competition Day

Exercise Bullseye Competition Day


Welcome to competition day, the crews are getting ready from New Zealand, Canada and Australia and what we’re going to look at today is dropping up and doom DZ up in Waiouru where they’re gonna drop a light equipment bundle and then the crews are going to flow through down to Raumai where they’ll drop a thousand pounds CDS bundle. Now as part of the competition the crews are going to be judged on their ability to be able to get over the target on time and on the time that it takes to get the bundle on the ground and then they are also going to be judged on how accurately they can drop the light equipment bundle and the CDS bundle to the center of the drop zone. Now the ground team has been working pretty hard to prepare the aircraft and also load the aircraft which they’re doing right now and i think that it’s going to be a good day for competition so all the best to the rest of the crews Gidday my name is Ethan out at the dropzone here in Raumai today. We just had the Australians drop not a bad effort for the first drop of the day, 8 meters. Coming up next we have the Canadians Gidday Ethan again back out at the Raumai dropzone Just had the Canadians drop right on the letter great score for them, zero meters, Bullseye Hey guys Ethan here out at the Raumai DZ The Aussie C-27 Spartan crew just dropped their first CDS, Bullseye. Next up we got the New Zealand crew hopefully they can pull off an upset win. The Canadians and Aussies have been dropping well so great start to the day Hi again guys, Ethan out at the drop zone The Kiwis have just finished their drop of the day Best time on target so far for the tournament Not quite the accuracy we’re looking for but lets wait for the Waiouru drop results to come in to see if the Kiwis can still walk away with the trophy hey guys Ethan here out at the Raumai dropzone the Canadians have just dropped their second CDS for the day – not quite the result there after landing about 95 metres off the drop zone luckily the first Canadian crew came with a Bullseye to save some Canadian pride One more drop to go today, the second Australian C-130 crew See how they go Not their best result, but still not a bad effort Big thanks to our international partners coming down for the exercise now it’s back to the office to collate the scores and then we’ll find out who the winner is So first place 55 points so they completely cleaned out the next 2nd, 3rd & 4th were 32, 35 and 38 points so comes down to the Spartan and the Kiwis But unfortunately well lucky for us the Kiwis took it out so well done
