Mr OSBORNE (EVANS, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Air) - I am .glad to 'tell the honorable member .that -at ,present two United States naval - aircraft are -operating from Richmond. They are based at Honolulu and .have come here on what is becoming a regular visit ..every six months. The aircraft are of the type that we call

Neptune maritime reconnaissance aircraft. Some of our Neptune aircraft of No. 11 Squadron visit Honolulu twice a year for similar training with the United States Navy. The American aircraft are engaging at present in exercises with our own aircraft and with ships of the Royal Australian Navy. They are providing, I think, an interesting example of the close cooperation that has been developed between Australian and American forces in these matters.
