Employees from the Department of Civil Aviation - After 12 months in Australia a 43 year old Birmingham man has seen more of the country than most Australians do in a life time. His is John Daniel Bird, formerly of 134, Marcot Road, Sheldon, Solihull, Birmingham. His sight seeing has been done by plane at the expenses of the Australian Government, for John Bird is a flight engineer with the Department of Civil Aviation Flying unit based in Melbourne. John's job involves the maintenance and servicing of the Unit's fleet of aircraft. He regularly accompanies the Unit on its checks of airport navigational aids throughout Australia and New Guinea. John "Dickie" Bird at work on one of the Flying Unit's planes at Melbourne Essendon airport.
