Well the final races in the Coates Hire V8 Supercars Series were held in Newcastle last weekend over a great couple of days for Motorsport enthusiasts.
For some of us though, the main attraction is not on the track but, rather, up in the sky, with a chance to see some of the Royal Australian Air Force’s front-line hardware being put through its paces over the beautiful port City of Newcastle.
With Williamtown, the RAAF’s main fighter base, just a few kilometers up the coast, it is too good an opportunity to pass up.
The always impressive Classic Hornet displays were performed by Flt Lt Matt “Traylz” in an F/A-18A, just before the feature race on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
With the arrival in Australia of the RAAF’s first F-35s just a few tantalising weeks away, will this be the last time we get to see a Classic Hornet display at this event?
Our thanks to the men and women of the ADF who made this weekend’s displays possible.
Awesome photos as usual. Well done.
Thank you very much Les. Glad you like them.
Thank you very much indeed David.
