There used to be a lot of job satisfaction in this work, but that was 30 years ago. probably still worth doing, and the toys are a lot better that a NVFR B206 and a UBD to navigate by.

Eric, I fear there will be a few amongst us who will not know what a UBD is.

The same people who book themselves a flight to Melbourne Florida instead of Melbourne Victoria

Nope, everything is still given as a Melways reference.

I’m tipping a Melways was never much good in Sydney;-)
But; where Melways are used, they still use Melways references.

Being only 19, I must admit, I had to google "UBD" and even then I was a bit lost.
Google Maps, I love you.

For you newer arrivals, a UBD is a little bit like a USB, but only because it has the letters "U" and "B" in it.

See I once decided to drive to Sydney (had my license 3 weeks), And didnt know that Melways was a MELBOURNE thing hahaha
Got there pulled out the melways and took me 30min to figure out what i did wrong.
