[Canberrauav] Flying this weekend

G'day again all,

Once you create an account, check out
http://wiki.aestabjoo.net/wiki/index.php?title=Pre-Flight_Briefing&action=history

What you'll see here is the flow from someone creating a page, an
exagerrated mischievous edit, and then a subsequent rollback. Roll back is
simply a matter of pressing a button.

Cheers,

Brett
