Air Force Australia Day 2020 flypasts

Operation Details Tab

Details
The Royal Australian Air Force will conduct flypasts in support of Australia Day celebrations at locations across Australia.
 
Flypasts are being conducted by aircraft that are not currently contributing to, or anticipated to be required for bushfire support over the Australia Day weekend.
 
There is a reduction in flypasts compared to previous years as a result of Air Force contribution to ongoing Australian Defence Force bushfire support.
 
All flying is subject to change due to weather and operational requirements.
