Australia Readies for Centenary Air Show

Australia Readies for Centenary Air Show

Pilots at Royal Australian Air Force bases around the country are practising their routines ahead of this weekend’s Centenary of Military Aviation Air Show at Point Cook.

The Weekly visited East Sale RAAF base last Wednesday as the Roulettes rehearsed their aerobatics. Six members of the team will take part in an aerial display above Point Cook, while the Roulettes’ seventh plane will form a static display.

Central Flying School’s Wing Commander Colin O’Neill said it was fitting that the school was taking part in the air show as it was one of the oldest military units in Australia. It was formed in March 1913, 12 months before Australia’s first military flight.
