In 1986 when the song and dance was composed in honour of the Late Mr Crossfield Ahmat Tombstone opening, composers and dance choreography, Late Mr James Eseli, Late Mr Aidan Laza, Late Mr Yopelli Panual, Late Mr Tupoa Nona and Late Mr Gizu David.

This dance, I was privilege to be taught while still in the making or creating the dance, because they asked me. When first performing for the Late Mr Crossfield Ahmat Tombstone, we had four bombers and four arrow heads fighter planes dancing on the opening night, which I was one of the dancers wearing the bomber.

When I dance this dance, to me it is very meaningful because of my Late Father Naseli Gaidan Q304661, who was in the Torres Strait Light Infantry Battalion. I am proud to have danced this dance and proud of my dad, unlces and the whole of Torres Strait Light Infantry Battalion.

The planes are both British and American Fighter planes.
