Monday, September 9, 2013: Day 16 - Bundaberg, Australia
Today we spent the day in Bundaberg, Australia.  We started the day with a visit to the Jabiru aircraft factory. Jabiru designed and builds a fantastic small, single-engine aircraft here in Bundaberg. This month marks their 25th anniversary of building the aircraft 090913 Jabiru J-230 with 25th Anniversary lettering(photo right: Jabiru with 25th anniversary emblem), and they have sold around 2,000 worldwide. Mike and I are so grateful for their hospitality today and value their passion for the Jabiru aircraft they build.
090913 Mike says goodbye to David McKenzie-leftNext we visited with Ian Bent, the owner of Camit. Ian is the manufacturer of the engine for the Jabiru, and with his CNC machinery, he built most of the components for the engine. Ian is a true professional and is dedicated to the product he manufactures. Mike and I were most impressed with Ian and his product.
