Law glad 'death machine' damaged

PEACE activist Bryan Law will stand trial in the Rockhampton District Court on charges he damaged a military aircraft last year.

Mr Law is alleged to have damaged a $36 million Tiger helicopter at Rockhampton Airport on July 21 in protest against the joint US and Australian exercise Talisman Sabre.

Mr Law, who travelled from Cairns to Rockhampton for the matter, faces charges of wilful damage and threatening an aircraft.

In a statement heard in Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday, Mr Law said he was glad he did it.

"I'm glad that for however brief a moment that infernal helicopter death machine couldn't fly," he said.

The trial date is expected to be set in the next six to 12 months.

Mr Law will appear in court again on September 28.
