F-35A Lightning II training over RAAF Base Tindal

Royal Australian Air Force F-35A Lightning II aircraft from 75 Squadron will be conducting air-to-air training over RAAF Base Tindal on Wednesday 14 December. Residence may observe an increased visibility of F-35A aircraft and associated noise over Tindal and Katherine for the duration of the flight.

Domestic training is an essential element of operational preparedness, currency and proficiency objectives for 75 Squadron. Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the community during these training activities.

Flying is subject to change, including short notice cancellation, due to variables such as air traffic control requirements, weather, and operational availability. 

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