That's very presumptuous given the flying display has not been released yet, maybe we should hand the reigns to you in 2019 and we all look forward to seeing what aircraft you can manage to get down here.

There's no need for that Dave. Every airshow you come in here and blow smoke up adu ass and give Sh#t to people voicing their opinion

If you buy a Gold Pass you can access the airshow all day on Friday, however it will set you back $190. Apart from that you could view the arrivals from the roads at either end of the runway, although I think parking is quite restricted during the airshow, at least on Beach Road. There may be viewing opportunities at the airport terminal, however as I'm not a local I'm not really sure.

Unfortunately I'll probably miss their arrival as I don't arrive in Melbourne until Friday morning and don't think I'll be able to get to Avalon by 11am.


Unlikely you'll get to watch anything on the Friday from the ends of the runway, the police will probably move you on

For those that are interested, Avalon website has been updated with some more static display aircraft/helicopters including Cessna Citation Latitude and Dornier 228. Learjet 35 has been removed from display.

Hi
It will be more difficult for viewing around Avalon this year as shadecloth has been installed around some of the more popular roadside viewing areas!

Also, how do we find out the arrival times for the military stuff? word-of-mouth? published somewhere?

Cheers
Ben.

Just wondering, does anyone have any info about arrival times and practice times yet? I realise may be too early, but worth asking just in case...

But to be more specific, very much interested in the F22 arrival and practice. I went to the F22 4(?) years ago and it was great. So would love to go again if at all possible.

This aircraft will be on static display during the air show as well.
