Australian army chopper crew stood down over lewd sign at Indy raceGOLD COAST, Australia (AFP) - An Australian army helicopter crew has been stood down for displaying a lewd sign at bikini-clad spectators during last month's Gold Coast Indy Champcar race. A defence spokesman confirmed crew members of the army Iroquois had been suspended from flying duties after hovering near apartment balconies and displaying a sign reading "show us your tits." At the time, the crew were supposed to on the lookout for potential terrorists as part of heightened security for the car race. The helicopter and the offending sign were snapped by a specator on one of the balconies and posted on the Internet. The Army said the helicopter crew's behaviour was "totally unacceptable". Spectator Sue Ferguson told Sydney's Daily Telegraph newspaper that the helicopter flew between two high-rise apartment buildings on the Queensland state tourist strip. "There were lots of girls on the balconies in bikinis," she told the newspaper. "It was obvious that the crew were trying to get a closer look. They hovered down to the third storey and just sat there." Ferguson, 38, said she was knocked to her feet by flying debris thrown up by turbulence from the helicopter's rotors as she watched the race from street level. "It was a freak accident caused by their stupid behaviour," she said. "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandella

It's created a bit of a furore. What did the bloody idiots think they were doing? Actually, that's the problem isn't it: they didn't think at all. You know the very powerful and the very stupid have one thing in common. They don't alter their views to fit the facts. They alter the facts to fit their views. Which can be uncomfortable if you happen to be one of the facts that need altering. The Doctor, The Face of Evil.
