All the citizens of Queensland who have paid for Protest Banners behind our aircraft have been injured in some way or another by the Heartless policies of the Queensland Labor government.
If you go around hurting your citizens you should expect some blow back 

A local landscaper, a Jazz Club Owner and others use SKY-ADS to take on the might of a heartless empire.

How did the Sky Banner – Battle of Brisbane start

It all started with SKY-ADS first banner – read on 

Thursday 10th September  

After the recent media regarding the injustice of the current Queensland Border Closures. John a Queensland Businessman decided he had had enough.

He called SKY-ADS and asked us to fly around Brisbane with his message to the Voters of Queensland.
Protesting about the unfairness of the Closed Borders

At 11am the next day our Protest Aeroplane was airborne with his protest message

Simple message, but very effective.
This protest message is now a call to action and a hashtag #VoteHerOut

SKY-ADS leveraged our media connections and soon we were busier than a long tail cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
By the end of the 3 hour session we had completed 8 media events.

Circling for the cameras at Tweed Heads, Cavill Ave (Ch 9), Australia Fair (Ch7), Mount Gravatt (Advance Australia), Mt Cootha for a run with the news chopper.

We then went for a chat with the premier in the city. ABC news got vision there. 

The pictures captured from the chopper aired on seven, nine and ABC nationally in the afternoon and evening.

Our businessman even went as far as setting up a GoFundMe page to raise money for some more flying in the led up to the election – If you want to help get our Protest Aeroplane airborne again –  Donate Here

Update - another day another ashamed businessman

Saturday 12th September

After our Protest Aeroplane flew “Vote Her Out” on Friday, we received a telephone call from James the owner of Go To Court Lawyers and Doo-Bop Jazz Bar.
He was so upset by the actions of the Government regarding the unfair Border rules after seeing our Protest Aircraft on the TV that night, he immediately sent us money to fly again on Sunday.

Press Release from our client James

Press Release

I am a Queenslander, born and bred, and not aligned with any political party. I am currently in mandatory hotel quarantine in Brisbane, day 8, for the crime of visiting NSW.

The actions of the Queensland Government since they closed the borders to all of NSW and the ACT on 8 August this year have truly sickened me. Children callously refused permission to see a dying parent, or to attend their funeral. A mother brutally prevented from seeing her son on his deathbed. Cancer victims, young and old, shown no mercy and scornfully turned away. And millions of people, including me, unable to travel freely around our own country, as the Australian Constitution gives us the unalienable right to do.

Annastacia Palaszczuk has shown everyone this week what she’s actually made of. The brutal, chilling disregard for the suffering of her fellow Australians is as shocking in a modern Australian political leader as it is reprehensible. Failing to intervene on behalf of a young woman who just wanted to attend her dad’s funeral; accusing the PM of bullying for asking her privately to do so, and then shamelessly absolving herself of all responsibility, and sheeting home all the blame to her hapless Chief Health Officer. How did it come to this?

Utterly, fundamentally, stunningly disgraceful behaviour, on every level. So unnecessary. So unedifying. So un-Australian.

Annastacia Palaszczuk is not worthy of the high office that she holds. We have these past days all witnessed indisputable proof that her character is deeply flawed. She is without mercy, without compassion, and she is destroying the very soul of Queensland.

She is heartless.

 “There, where I have passed, the grass will never grow again.”

Update - John's Crowdfunding comes through

Dr Jannette Young has not been seen since Friday’s Protest Aeroplane. And Anna-stay-shut did not appear after Sunday.
Instead the premier’s stand in man, the second banana came out so John, all cashed up with everybody’s donations.
Decided that if Mr Miles wants to run the state, he should face the Protest Aeroplane.

The result is

Update - Heads up - Forth Protest Aeroplane over Brisbane Sunday 20/9/20

Morning

Today Sunday 20/9/20 the Sky Banner – Battle of Brisbane erupts again

Our client a Jazz Club owner in Brisbane who is outraged by the shame our state government has brought upon us with the disgraceful heartlessness regarding the hindrance placed upon our border freedom. Is again reminding those in power that treating her citizens with such contempt is un-Australian.

Our message today

banner-towing-aircraft

                   END OUR BORDER SHAME NOW

Authorized by J Stevens, 172 Evans Rd, Salisbury Qld

We will be presenting a photo opportunity of our banner at the Lookout at Mt Coo-tha at 12:30 today

We remind the premier that a pregnant woman from Ballina still does not have her permission to go to a Hospital in Brisbane for Urgent medical treatment.

If fact cross border residents in Tweed Heads also cannot travel  to Brisbane without exemption because of pass conditions.

This is a shameful situation bringing disgrace on Queensland.

by Miles flawed logic – Canberra should be closing its borders to Brisbane now; because Brisbane has had cases in the last 28 Days….

As the CHO pointed out Canberra is in the middle of NSW – We would like to point out that it is about 3 hours’ Drive from Sydney and nearly half way to Melbourne; so why is Northern Rivers (8 to 10 hours from Sydney and 16 to 18 hours from Melbourne) not allowed to travel in Queensland?

Protest Aeroplane Banner reads "End our Border shame Now !"

Authorized by J Stevens, 172 Evans Rd, Salisbury Qld

The Border Shame has brought disgrace on Queensland. Queenslanders are still not free despite some minor fiddling with border bubble areas –

The Border shame continues in as far as we cannot travel to so many covid free areas of the country.

  • There has been no plausible reason given
  • No admission of the hurt being caused as a result of our reduction in freedom.
  • No attempt to minimise the damage or reduce the time span of our hurt.

Fifth Protest Aeroplane over Brisbane

Today Sunday 27/9/20 the Sky Banner – Battle of Brisbane continues. 
This week with a general statement of fact. SAFETY IS NOTHING WITHOUT FREEDOM
This applies everywhere in the world. But especially in areas who are suffering lockdowns. 
We will be presenting a photo opportunity of our banner at the Lookout at Mt Coo-tha at 12:10 today

Our message today – directly confronts the fake news regarding safety 

Protest aeroplane writes "Safety is Nothing Without Freedom" across the sky

Authorized by J Stevens, 172 Evans Rd, Salisbury Qld

You cannot hurt your citizens and not expect blow back

Update 4th October 2020

The premier cannot hurt her citizens in a heartless and uncaring manner without some bush pack.
This is what happens when you restrict people’s livelihood necessary, stop girls visiting her dying father; and then when it’s too late stop them going to the funeral. Shame!
If you are going to make rules that restrict your citizens freedoms you should be very careful.    

Then they need to be applied with compassion and common sense; not uncaringly for Political Advantage

Packed Gold Coast Beaches also saw our Protest Aeroplane fly past plus a M1 Traffic Jam from Dreamworld all the way bumper to bumper to Beenleigh on the way to Brisbane.

Plastic curtain along the Qld - NSW border

The Premier sets the Policy for her bureaucrats to follow; the shame brought upon us by her Heartless policies (or lack of them) is Unforgivable.

It has led to the death of a baby, cruel punishment of 14 days in solitary motel confinement for leaving the state and in human treatment of grieving children unable to see their dying father or attend his funeral – all unforgivable, this is why our clients say SHE IS HEARTLESS – VOTE HER OUT.

Our message will be over Brisbane at Noon; photo opportunities will be available at Mt Gravatt and Mt Coo-tha Lookouts between 12 and 12:30. Text us on 04 12166692 for an ETA

Advance Australia return to the Queensland Election fray

Having previously flown, it was great to have Advance Australia return to be involved in the election campaign.

Election Banner reads "A Vote for Labor is a Vote for Trad"

Authorised by Matthew Sheahan for Advance Aus Ltd, Level 9, 2 Phillip Law Street, New Acton ACT 2601.

Reaction was immediate News.com reporting that

“Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk
has had to be pressed to commit to serving out the full four year term
if she is returned to power later this month.”

So we are wondering who you get if you Vote Labor, Trad or Miles?

Queenslanders do not like Job Killing COVID restrictions

The owner of a Brisbane Jazz Bar which has been effectively Killed by COVID restrictions is back today, Sunday 18th October with another message behind SKY-ADS protest aeroplane to the voters of Queensland.
Which we flew around Brisbane and the Gold Coast today

Our clients message; the Eradication strategy pursued by the Labor government is so very costly costly on Jobs, business and the economy. Better ways of containing covid exist but will not be considered by this Heartless premier only interested in keeping her Job; Not anyone else’s’.
The policies enacted by labor have been Cruel , Heartless and often unnecessary. 
Being more for political optics than keeping us safe.
How are we any safer stopping people from Walgett (or any other covid free area) having a holiday on the Gold Coast?
But such deliberate misleading polices have Killed the Tourist industry and JOBS!!!
Who can forget the people who needed our help and were refused. Shame.

After a Facebook Post another annoyed businessman joins

The video above featured in a Post on Facebook  page

After seeing our post – the managing director of a Sunshine Coast company has stepped up and sponsored a Banner behind our Protest Aircraft. 
Another horror story about how a perfectly sound business was destroyed by the policies of the current Labor Mob.
The economic cost of Anna-stay-shut’s first shutdown is only just trickling through now. 
It this case the building is being knocked down because a lease could not be renewed during during the lockdown and the landlord decided to sell to a developer.

Keep you eyes to the sky today Friday 23/10/2020 from noon on the Gold Coast – Brisbane around 1:00 

Protest Aircraft displays "LABORS BORDER SHAME ERADICATING JOBS

Authorized by G. Biggs Terranora 2486 

We have been inundated with horror stories from injured Queenslanders. All of who have been hurt in one way or another by the Heartless Policies enacted by the Labor state government.
The government enacts the policies – the public service’s job is to follow those policies. No good blaming them. 
If you hurt your citizens you should expect some repercussions   

If you too would like chip in to sponsor a banner email us and we will send you information.
