Air Force flypasts for Remembrance Day - Townsville

A single C-17A Globemaster III will conduct two flypasts over Townsville, Queensland, in support of Remembrance Day commemorations.

The first flypast will take place over the Thuringowa Cenotaph about 10.57am. The C-17A Globemaster will then complete a second flypast along the Strand, flying over Anzac Park at 11am.
