F-35A Lightning II handling display for Darwin Supercars Event

A single Royal Australian Air Force F-35A Lightning II aircraft from No. 2 Operational Conversion Unit will conduct a low-level handling display in support of the Darwin Triple Crown Supercars event.

The F-35A aircraft will fly as low as approximately 60 metres above the ground and reach speeds of up to 1,000 kilometres per hour.

All low level flying activities are conducted within strict safety and operational guidelines.

Flying is subject to change, including last minute cancellation, due to variables including air traffic control requirements, weather, and operational availability.

Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military flying.
