I remember seeing that on the F3 north of Sydney, back in the 80s.

They're put the aerial speed check signs and road markings back now, but I don't think they actually do any flying. The 'aerial speed check' location just happens to be right next to Warervale Airport - so motorists see a cessna coming in to land, and slow down.

The Appliance has a bunch of limitations (like not working with View Composer, etc).

It also isn't available anymore. There was a 5.0 version, however with the release of 5.0U1, there is only the Windows version - "vCenter Server Appliance 5.0 Update 1 will be available later this year." Link
