This is the place to read all about submarines in the real world!
Australia’s Air Force anti-submarine warfare hunters have come out on top against an international field of submarine hunters, winning the coveted FINCASTLE trophy, in a competition off the coast of WA. FINCASTLE is an annual Anti-Submarine Warfare competition held between the Maritime Patrol Squadrons of Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom. The Chief of Air Force Air Marshal Angus Houston presented the trophy to a team from the Australian Air Force in a ceremony held at Defence Science and Technology Organization in Edinburgh SA. The members of Crew 5, 10 Squadron flew their AP-3C Orion aircraft to victory during the exercise, held last week off the coast of Western Australia. Australia has won the FINCASTLE trophy 13 times though the RAF won it last year. A parallel competition for maintenance crews is also held. This time around it was awarded to the RAF Maintenance crew.
