F-35A Lightning II low level flypast over RAAF Base Williamtown

Up to four Royal Australia Air Force F-35A Lightning II aircraft from No. 77 Squadron will conduct a low-level flypast over RAAF Base Williamtown.

The F-35A flypast is in commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the fatal F/A-18 Hornet accident which occurred in 1992.

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

Flying is subject to change due to variables such as air traffic control requirements, weather and other aviation considerations.

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