RAAF RICHMOND OPEN DAY 2015

Hello and welcome back... On Saturday 30th May,  Richmond RAAF base opened its doors to the public in a 'Open Day' to support Kids In Need.

On display (static) was
C-130J Hercules transport Aircraft
Hawk 127 Lead-in Fighter Jet
Air Force Hot Air Balloon
RAAF Panther Fire Truck
Various Plant Equipment and Trucks
Also on display was No1 Combat Communications Squadron
No 35 & 285 squadron
Air Movement Training and Development Unit
Army No 176 Air Dispatch Squadron

In the air, flybys from C-130J Hercules, Hawk 127 Fighter Jet & C-17A Globemaster

Although the day was cold and cloudy, it was a very enjoyable experience.
Last time i went to Richmond for a airshow was back in 2006?.
Security was tight, as it should be. Sadly in today's society, nothing can be taken for granted, as such, i decided to leave the radio scanner at home.
The invitation was to only 5000 visitors, mostly Facebook follows, website readers and various Military.

It was a very enjoyable day, as an aircraft / military enthusiast, to be able to get up close and see these amazing aircraft and other equipment was truly an amazing experience.

Many Thanks to all Involved

    Hawk 127 Fighter Jet

































   This little jet is very fast, had lots of trouble focusing my camera to get a good shot...
