Mr STEWART (LANG, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question is addressed to the Minister for Defence. Does he still believe that the Fill aircraft is a super battle bird and the greatest thing with wings since angels? Does he still believe that it is the Cadillac of the air, that it flies high and low, fast and slow, throws a power punch tougher than five World War II heavy bombers and sniffs out targets like a thirsty vampire? Does he still believe that regardless of cost we will be getting our money's worth with this aircraft or have two things happened in the last 7 days which have caused him to make a reassessment of the situation?
