    They need more technique and rehearsal . They expect these kind of incident to happen once in 5 years. But need to be prepared at any moment . Country like Australia alway prepare for any incident whether its happens or notWe got good AirForce - Need to train for unexpected incidents and get more expertise from country like Australia
