Australia Readies for Centenary Air Show

Feb 28, 2014 No Comments by

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.

Online Editor I've been around airplanes since I was a kid. That's when my uncle, a professional pilot, showed me how to fly his Cessna 177 Cardinal. l later became a writer and editor, so covering the exciting and ever-changing aviation industry -- which I've been doing in Flight Journal's Flybys since the late '90s -- was a natural fit.
