Details

Up to 10 Royal Australian Air Force Hawk 127 Lead-In Fighter aircraft from Number 76 Squadron, will conduct a flying display for family members as part of the graduation celebrations for Australia’s newest fighter pilots at 12 pm on 16 June 2017.

The formation of 10 aircraft will conduct an overhead pass before breaking into a three ship display team and a seven ship flypast formation. The formation will then separate into a three ship and four ship to allow for safe manoeuvring back onto base for landing.

Graduation flying display and flypast activity scheduled for 16 June 2017 will be dependant on local weather conditions and operational requirements.

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