Mr FAIRBAIRN (FARRER, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I address to the Minister for Air a question concerning applications made, probably by almost every member of this House, on behalf of organizations working to raise money for charitable purposes, for Air Force participation in air pageants. Does the Air Force co-operate, as far as possible, by acceding to the many requests that it receives? Does it, like the Navy, have an aerobatic team which gives air displays? Is there any reason why the commanding officers of local stations should not arrange flights at air pageants if such flights can be used in training in, for example, formation flying, navigation exercises, low flying, and the like?
