Those UWA ads on the M.A.N. artics have some slighly hilarious placement:

"CHOOSE WISELY" and "PURSUE THE IMPOSSIBLE" adjacent to warnings about overtaking a turning vehicle... Thats like a bad joke or something.

Wow an Optimus with an AOA finally. :D

I still cannot believe AOA's are being fitted to old 405HH's, which are now in their twilight years and see limited exposure.

Hopefully this heralds the start of a new era and AOA's being fitted to the newer gear in the fleet.

Are we sure this is actually an AOA though? And not just a jumbo side ad?

It is actually not a Subway AOA, I saw it in person just then and it is just a jumbo side ad.

A 207x MB OC500LE operated by sWAn has a 'Wonderful Indonesia' AOA, but was too quick for my phone passing me on Main St, Osborne Park, doing either a 402 or 414.
