Taken at Woomera, South Australia.



Also I took a photo of the tip of a hypersonic research vehicle. I thought the tip looked strange.



Woomera is a complete ghost town. Never saw one person or car on the streets, only a BAe systems car - almost eerie. An RAAF C-130 flew over, what do they do at Woomera still? I understand they still do aeronautical testing there, Tiger helos, F-18's, & secret UAV's. Any more details?

Thanks.

EDIT: And what do they do at Tennant Creek. Lots of army dudes around and for some reason army refueling trucks were driving around at 4AM sorounded by humvees.

It's not a bloodhound SAM is it?

As for what happens in Woomera, maybe a U2U to OzWeatherman is in order, he lives and works there now.

Looks like a typical ballistic missile




What type exactly, I am not sure. I will keep looking.

I don't remember the name of therocket but I remember seeing them in a Canadian special about how they used them with a model avro arrow on the tip to do tests of the supersonic capabilities because avro didn't have a supersonic wind tunnel.

There are 4 countries testing their own "black" (publicly undeclared) aircraft out at Woomera. It includes the UK. I'm assuming that it's in the mix.

Thats the gossip at the moment.

This was tested at womera

Ah yeah, I've read about the UK doing UAV test flights out at Woomera.

Perfect spot for such tests really.

bloodhound battery at RAF Holmpton/Patrington


believe it or not but at least 1 country is still using the bloodhound mk2 - Burma - in 1994 Singapore sold there entire system to them

www.burmalibrary.org...


the swiss airforce finally retired the system in 1999 - although they are in storage for possible re-activation.


personally i would love one
, or even the road mobile version the British Army`s Thunderbird



and finally:





2 video`s of the bloodhound in action
