The Royal Australian Air Force’s 2 Operational Conversion Unit (2OCU) put on an event for the unit’s family and friends on Friday 27th of September and, as part of this, they also put up a formation and solo handling display of their F/A-18A&B Classic Hornets.
The weather was great and the pilots put on a great show. Fil (XO), Shtor, Hawk and Woody (CO) began with several formation passes, including one with all four jets in “Dirty” configuration (gear, flaps and hooks down) before finishing up with a bomb-burst.
Once the others had landed, Fil then carried out a high-performance, solo handling display, which is always a treat to watch.
