Up to 14 F/A-18A/B Hornet aircraft will conduct a ‘Tigerbird’ formation flypast and a low initial and pitch manoeuvre over RAAF Base Williamtown at approximately 10am on Thursday 21 June 2018.
The flypast is the finale of the graduation of 18-1 F/A-18 Hornet Operational Conversion course, conducted by No. 2 Operational Conversion Unit (2OCU).

The crews involved have recently graduated from 2OCU after six months of intensive fighter pilot training.
