I was out kitesurfing at Friendly Beaches on the East coast of Tasmania yesterday on port tack heading out about 500m off shore not a soul on the beach or in the water, just me and a 15 knot NE wind when I started hearing what sounded like thunder! in a completely cloudless sky.
I started looking everywhere to see what was happening while trying not to crash my kite! Was it the end of the world, a terrorist explosion, a tidal wave, and then I saw it coming right at me from behind my head at about a 1000ft? It was a RAF Hercules just dropping in to have a look and scare the shit out of me!!! Will I send the airforce the bill for the dry cleaning? Anyone else been buzzed by their friendly airforce??
