Apparently 30,000 people attended on the Saturday, when I was there.

 

 

 

This RAAF Air Display was last held here in Adelaide, South Australia in 2007.

I happened to meet a very pleasant young gentleman there by the name of 'John' who is a software design engineer for the Australian Dept. of Defence.

 

F35

 

The announcer was saying over the public address system that the US intend to have 4200 F35's in service.

I hope I have my figures right. That sounds hard to believe. Australia is to have 78 by 2023.

The F35 was the highlight. Soon after ascending from the runway, the pilot pushed it into a near vertical climb, the roar of the engine reverberating throughout your body.

It was impressive and gave a feeling of pride in Man's current aircraft capability.
