In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, host Phil Tarrant is joined by Air Marshal (Retired) Warren McDonald AO, CSC.
The pair begin by discussing Air Marshal McDonald’s previous role heading up the joint capabilities at the ADF and how he’s bringing his experience to lead Lockheed Martin Australia as the company’s new chief executive.
The podcast continues, analysing the new capabilities the Lockheed Martin-built F-35 fleet will bring to the Royal Australian Air Force as four of the fifth-generation jets touched down at their new home in RAAF Base Tindal this month.
The pair wrap up the podcast discussing resilience and Air Marshal McDonald’s take on how the defence industry has handled the COVID-19 pandemic.
