Warbirds Down Under 1

AviationPosted by Peter Smith Mon, October 15, 2018 10:02:29

After a slight satellite delay due to poor wi-fi in our last hotel it’s back to Warbirds Down Under. We’ve had up and down weather whilst we’ve been away but the air show weekend was grand. It was a two day event with an ‘evening’ show on Friday and a full show on Saturday. We drove over from Canberra on Friday and arrived in plenty of time to have a mooch along the flight time before taking seats in the grand stand – we went the Gold Pass route to save standing! The stands were a little cosy but everyone stayed seated so no obstructions to views which was good. And the chap next to me was a friendly guy who was able to share a lot of interesting info.

The show itself was pretty well executed with minimal delays in acts as aircraft took off early to hold for their slots. There was also some participation from the RAAF. Although similar in content the two days were different and it was certainly worth attending both.

Anyway, there was lots of content that I had not seen before, although a couple of the aircraft were in the HARS hangar when we visited last week, so I’m going to put this up in multiple posts and start with some flight line and static shots.
