Thanks to all who have visited us already; if you haven’t yet called by our stand 2L1 in Hall B, we hope to see you before the end of the show.

So far we've seen the arrival of Growler, some great updates on F-35 from the US perspective and as we went to press the KC-30A achieved FOC and Garden Island facilities at Fleet Base East will receive a $213 million upgrade.
