I think you see them since you already accessed via Secretprojects and they are in your cache or similar.  All I see is a little blue square with a ?.

Okay! How about now? Chrome allows you to view the page source so I was able to locate the direct path to the file/file name vs previous the indirect reference path.

Interesting snippet that could provide a trigger for a RAAF and later ARA CH-53:



A bit more on this.  The team led by GPCAPT Raw included Australian Army officers and recommended the CH-53 based partly on its perceived better handling characteristics.

I'm thinking a RAAF CH-53 in this sort of scheme would look cool:

Would that be the twin-engined version or the later three-engined version?

Are decals available for that scheme of RAAF CH-47?  I've got a CH-53E kit as well as a HH-53J kit that could use them.
