We had some Super Hornets visit so security were a pain in the ass.
Only shots I ended up with were this PC9

We've had this scheme since the CT4. Getting a bit old

Heh the old CT4, aka "Plastic Parrot". I did work experience in my high school years at 1FTS Point Cook, around the same time as the PC9 was being introduced. One of the Roulettes paid a visit in his brand spanker PC9 and performed a great low-level display before he landed


Currently just a P&S, but watch this space.

I remember when I was still in the RAAF and the Macchi's were still unpainted, then back in the early 70's they decided to paint them white and orange.....from that day on they were nicknamed "Fanta Cans"!

We had a Mirage III fanta can at ARDU. Now on display out front of Edinburgh. I wont say it's in the best of conditions. Edinburgh command don't seem to care much about RAAF history. So much so I wonder if a P3 will get a plinth out front in a few years?
