Farmer cracking whip scrambles RAAF personnel at Amberley

A MYSTERIOUS series of events on and around RAAF Base Amberley has had an apparently mundane conclusion.

Police were called out to the base about 1.20pm yesterday after shell casings were found inside the base perimeter, a police spokesman said.

He said because the shells were inside the base, it was decided RAAF personnel should investigate and so the police left.

About an hour later, some RAAF personnel who were undergoing firearms training at the base shooting range heard what they thought was small arms fire after they had finished shooting.

A RAAF spokesman said personnel investigated and found the sound was coming from a farmer on Southern Amberley Rd who was using a stockwhip to chase his cows.
