The next Defence Force Air Show will be held at the RAAF Base Edinburgh in South Australia on the 9th and 10th of November 2019.
The Air Show will commemorate the Centenary of the epic flight in November 1919 of notable South Australian Sir Ross Smith and his brother, Sir Keith Smith, who flew from England to Australia in 1919 in a Vickers Vimy to win the Great Air Race. Aviation technology advances since the 100 years since the event will be showcased at the two-day event.
The public will have a rare opportunity to see some of the Australian Defence Force’s most advanced military aircraft including the latest fifth generation fighter aircraft, the F-35A Lightning II, and Defence technologies in addition to historic and vintage aircraft. Crowds can expect to see more than four hours of flying displays on each day with the full range of ADF fast jets, transport and rotary wing aircraft taking part in the Air Show.
