I didn't attend but I am told this was the airshow schedule. No B2's or B52 from the USAF .... only C17's (which Australia is buying 4 for airlift capacity). Not even a new RAAF 737 Wedgetail AWAC a/c. At least they had the flying pigs (F1-11) and F18 Hornets still on show doing the dump and burn stuff.

I went to the 1988 Richmond airshow ... Antov 124, KC10 tanker, 707, 747 ... we even had a B52 do three low level passes over the runway direct from Guam on a "training flight", then back to Gaum at FL450.

There are pictures of the C-17 III Globemaster Number HH-55152 ... called "Minkie 12" doing practise runs for Rwy 28

Thanks Grant, sounds like it was nowhere near as spectacular as 1988 (I remember that day...). It sounds like I'm better off going for a drive down to Temora & check out the museum.

Cheers,


Richard

Save your pennies and go to the Avalon show in Victoria next year. This is the only official Internations air show held n Australia.
