Naming Australia’s National Large Air Tanker: competition winners announced!
AIDR and the National Aerial Firefighting Centre (NAFC) would like to congratulate Bishop Druitt College Coffs Harbour, St Patrick’s College Campbelltown, and Christian College Geelong for being selected as joint winners of the National Large Air Tanker (LAT) Naming Competition.

The three winning schools all proposed the name “The Phoenix”. Students from the schools said that it is “a symbol of renewal and rebirth”, that the National LAT “is curing the land with its tears by putting out fires” and that it will allow “new life rising from the ashes”.
