The RAAF will celebrate the completion of the fleet for 1 and 6 Squadrons, based at Amberley with the flypast before an official ceremony at the base on Friday morning. A flypast of up to 20 RAAF Super Hornets is expected this Friday as it marks the final delivery of four aircraft.
“A flypast of up to 20 jets will take place over the skies of Queensland on Friday followed by a solo aerial display that will be performed over the base,” said a RAAF spokesman. She also said that the arrival of four Super Hornets jets from the US will take the number of the F/A-18F fighter jets to 24 at the base.
The F-18 jets will fly over the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and then arrive at the base after 11am.
“There will be a mass formation flypast of up to 20 F/A-18F Super Hornets over the Gold and Sunshine Coasts, Brisbane and Ipswich, this Friday as part of the welcoming ceremony for four new Super Hornets,” another spokeman said in a statement.
“The final number of aircraft flying will depend on operational and training tasks for the aircraft.”
