Sydney Olympics

01 Oct 2000

During the closing night ceremony for the 2000 Summer Olympic Games, held in Stadium Australia at Olympic Park, Homebush Bay, F-111s from No 6 Squadron ‘stole the show’ with a spectacular ‘dump and burn’ routine. This presented the illusion of the Olympic flame transcending the skies like a comet, to be reborn at the Games’ next location in Greece, in 2004.
