SHE might not have got the trip she was hoping for, but an unexpected tour aboard the HMAS Hobart for Bathurst’s Stacey Whittaker was very welcomed. She was among a group of six Defence Reserves Support Council guests who were supposed to have a half-day sail aboard the Young Endeavour in Sydney Harbour, that was until the ship had an engine failure. But, strings were pulled and just a few minutes later the group was met by Commanding Officer Captain John Stavridis for a two-hour tour of the Royal Australian Navy’s newest ship. The $1.8 billion guided missile destroyer was only commissioned in September, 2017&nbsp;and Bathurst Business Chamber’s Mrs Whittaker was among the first civilians to receive a tour. Hobart’s combat system, includes radar and missile systems capable of engaging enemy aircraft and missiles at ranges in excess of 150 kilometres.
