Up to six F/A-18A/B Hornet aircraft from No. 2 Operational Conversion Unit will conduct diversion training into Tamworth Airport on 31 July and 1 August, from approximately 6.30pm to 8.30pm.
The aircraft will conduct instrument approaches and ‘touch and go’ landings as part of the final phase of fighter training for aircrew.
Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach training is an essential part of pilot training on fast-jet aircraft as it assists pilots to land at different airfields in all weather conditions.
Residents should note that the date and time for this activity are subject to variables including weather and operational availability, and may change.
Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military activity, and Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the Tamworth residents and surrounding communities during these training activities.
