A C-130 Hercules aircraft bearing four
metre high white ribbons painted on
its tail touched down in Tennant Creek
En route from Darwin back to the Richmond
airbase on the north-western fringe of Sydney,
the A97-464, also known as Ausy489 was spot-
ted looking spectacular over the Honeymoon
Returning from a promotional tour, the pilot
called in to try some training manoeuvres.
The Hercules made three touch-and-go land-
ings and also performed a missed-approach,
or go-around, where at a designated point -

White Ribbon Day is celebrated each year
in Australia on November 25, signalling the
start of the 16 days of activism to stop violence
against women, ending on December 10 - Hu-
man Rights Day.
Last year, the Australian Army, as well as Air
Force’s Air Mobility Group, were awarded
White Ribbon Workplace Accreditation Status.
The program encompasses training and sur-
veys of the workforce, assessing and hopefully
changing attitudes towards the issue of male-
led violence against women.
Air Mobility Group has over 1,400 people in
its ranks and the values promoted by the White
Ribbon campaign are closely aligned with Air
White Ribbon promotes respect for each
individual in the workplace by eliminating bul-
lying and sexual harassment, issues no longer
tolerated in today’s society.

A NEW mini-bus service hits the
road on Monday, offering a taxi
service to town once again.
Run by Tennant Creek Transport (TCT)
that also runs a local bus service, the
mini-bus will fill the void left when the
town’s only taxi ceased operations last
Service Coordinator Alison Jackson
said there was an obvious need for the
“It is great that people can now fly to
Tennant Creek but up until now there
has been no way for them to get around
town,” she said.
“I had a call from two Government
employees last week who needed to get
from an office in Leichhardt Street to
the Council but there was nothing we
could do for them. Next week it will be
a different story.”
Ms Jackson said TCT had already
received positive feedback from accom-
modation providers and a number of
Town Bus service passengers had indi-
cated they would prefer a door-to-door
service, particularly when they had a lot
of shopping to carry home.
TCT Manager David Denmark said the
mini-bus would operate like a taxi in that
trips could be booked anywhere within
the town area.
“The accessible mini-bus means that
wheelchair users will be able to access a
flexible transport service,” he said.
“Special arrangements are in place for
people with disabilities who can apply to
join the Territory Taxi Subsidy Scheme.
Under this program, eligible people can
get a discount of 50% on their fare.”
Barkly National Disability Insurance
Agency (NDIA) Service Delivery Direc-
tor Malcolm Mill said the introduction
of the new personalised point-to-point
service will have a very positive impact
on public transport options for people
with disability in Tennant Creek.
TCT Convenor Georgina Bracken ac-
knowledged NDIA’s assistance in getting
an accessible mini-bus on the road.
“We have all worked very hard to get
this service on the ground and it has not
been easy,” she said.
“However residents and businesses in
the town will benefit a great deal from
the service and we are all keenly looking
forward to Monday.”
The service will operate during the
day. Costs are $10 per person and $2.50
Passengers will be able to use EFTPOS
or Basics Card to pay for fares.
