Overall its not a bad Provisional flying program. The ADF showcase again looks like a potential highlight, along with the Raptor of course.

No solo Classic Hornet display? They're sending one to NZ for their show this weekend, seems strange they wouldn't also include Avalon? Although the 4-ship is still a good display too.

My only other concern is the sequencing, the F-22 on the weekend looks like it could be fairly late in the day, which from the public gallery means potentially looking right into the sun - not good for viewing or photography. Hopefully that can get brought forward a bit.

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



Looks like this has just headed back to HNL due to some sort of technical issue?????

Supposed to be on the Friday....There is a post from MikeS a couple of pages back mentioning the possibility that they are arriving between 11am and midday. No idea if that is still the plan though.

RAAF website mentions the Spartin and Roulettes will meet at 11.50am tomorrow at Phillip Island, and then fly around the shoreline of Port Phillip Bay, passing Melbourne between 12.15pm and 12.30pm, before landing at Avalon just after 12.35pm.
