Australia’s next generation of fighter pilots have just graduated as F/A-18 Hornet pilots after participating in Exercise High Sierra in Townsville.
Exercise High Sierra is three weeks long and represents the last phase of the 6 month F/A-18 operational conversion course.
The F/A-18A/B aircraft will depart Townsville on the morning of 13 December 2018 to return home to RAAF Base Williamtown, arriving at approximately 12.00 – 12.30 pm.
Members of the community are encouraged to contact 1300 DEFENCE (333 3623) for information on flying activities.
All flying is subject to change due to weather and operational requirements.
