NUMBER 92 Wing AP-3C flight
engineer WOFF Greg Kerr reached
a significant milestone recently
when he achieved one year in the air
-- equivalent to 8760 flying hours --
over the Australian outback.
He was on a return flight from
Operation Gateway in Malaysia.
"I was on the return transit from
Butterworth, and was approxi-
mately half-way between Uluru and
Woomera when I passed the year in
the air milestone," WOFF Kerr said.
In recognition of his achieve-
ment, WOFF Kerr was greeted upon
landing at RAAF Base Edinburgh
with a traditional water cannon
salute from the base fire trucks.
His wife Kathryn and daughters
Sophie and Rebecca were on hand
to congratulate him on his mile-
"Family support is crucial and I
have been supported by my wonder-
ful wife and two loving daughters,"
WOFF Kerr said.
"On numerous occasions they
have put up with effectively being a
Sky high for
single-parent family and
it was great having them
there when I returned."
OC 92WG GPCAPT
Warren McDonald con-
gratulated WOFF Kerr
for not only attaining the
milestone but for the pro-
fessional and committed manner in
which he served the Air Force.
"WOFF Kerr is a highly respect-
ed WOFF and flight engineer,"
GPCAPT McDonald said.
"His professional and person-
able qualities have enabled him to
mentor countless aircrew, including
myself, resulting in a safer and more
WOFF Kerr joined the Air Force
in 1978, and after seven years as an
electrical fitter, remustered to flight
engineer. During the following 24
years he was posted to every squad-
ron within 92WG, occupying every
check, training and standards posi-
tion in the wing.
"I have had the privilege of
enjoying a high level of job satis-
faction throughout my whole Air
Force career which I attribute to the
outstanding people whom I have
had the good fortune to work with,
as well as the support of my superi-
ors, peers and subordinates," WOFF
The most memorable experi-
ences of his career were flying
operational sorties over Iraq and
"There is not much of Iraq I
have not seen and the terrain over
Afghanistan is amazing, particularly
when you visually correlate it with
locations and areas of historical sig-
nificance," he said.
As the end of his career
approached, he said his greatest con-
cern was that he would no longer be
able to fly for the Air Force.
"I am not looking forward to the
day when I will no longer be able
to get up in the air; I really love it,"
