A selection of aircraft representing one hundred years of aviation will be in the skies over the Mornington Peninsula on Sunday, 11 March for the 2018 Tyabb Air Show.

A single Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) P/C-9 Roulette will perform an aerobatic display flying as low as 80 metres (250 feet) at speeds of up to 600 kilometres an hour.

In contrast, a World War One display starring a RAAF Museum Sopwith Pup replica in conjunction with privately owned Sopwith Snipe bi-planes will feature at the Air Show and be followed by a range of other privately owned warbirds including a CAC Winjeel and AT-6D Harvard aircraft display.

The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) in a Bell 429 Global Ranger will demonstrate its capabilities and land their helicopter for the public to see up close. The popular RAN Band Melbourne and a ceremonial guard will also perform on the day.

Tyabb Airport gates open at 8.30am with air displays commencing at 11.30am. 

All Air Force involvement is subject to change due to weather and operational requirements.
