RAAF Base Edinburgh, on the outskirts of Adelaide, will open its gates to the public for an exhilarating, action packed Air Show in November.
The two-day event will showcase advances in aviation technology during the 100 years since Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith made their epic flight from England to Australia.
The public will have a rare opportunity to see some of the Australian Defence Force’s most advanced military aircraft including the latest fifth generation fighter aircraft, the F-35A Lightning II, and Defence technologies in addition to historic and vintage aircraft.
Crowds can expect to see more than four hours of flying displays on each day with the full range of ADF fast jets, transport and rotary wing aircraft taking part in the Air Show.
