I took an early lunch break to see an historic flyover of 20 of the new RAAF F/A-18F Super Hornets. I decided to view the flyover with hundreds of other office workers from the centre of Victoria Bridge in Brisbane. The Department of Defence said the flyover was part of a welcoming ceremony for four new Super Hornets and may never be repeated. Here's the video I filmed with my iPhone 4.
The one-off performance was arranged to welcome four new Super Hornet jets. A fleet
of 16 jets left Amberley after 10am (AEST) for a point off North
Stradbroke Island, before speeding south to cross the coast at Southport
and continuing south to Tweed Heads. They then turned and headed north to a point off the Sunshine Coast where they were joined by the four new Super Hornets. The
formation flew over Noosa Heads and headed south, passing over
Brisbane's CBD en route to Ipswich and the RAAF base at Amberley.
