The exercise will see an increased presence of personnel and aircraft operating from RAAF Base Townsville, Queensland, throughout February.
The public should not be alarmed if they see low-flying aircraft, or increased movement of military personnel and vehicles within the area.
Training exercises such as this helps ensure the ADF remains in a ready state of preparedness in the protection of Australia and its national interests.
Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military flying.
