Exercise Pitch Black 2020 Online
The exercise has evolved significantly since it first began in 1981, in terms of scope and goals, technology, and the personnel required to make it happen. This evolution is expected to continue into the future as the RAAF grows as a fifth generation Air Force.
For much of its history, Exercise Pitch Black has been conducted in the Northern Territory, with forces predominantly based at RAAF Base Darwin and RAAF Base Tindal and utilising training ranges and exercise airspace in the Northern Territory. We thank the Northern Territory community for its continued support to the exercise.
The exercise involves RAAF units from all around Australia including RAAF Bases Darwin, Tindal, Amberley, Richmond, Williamtown and Edinburgh.
