Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) ANZAC Day 2023 Flypast Details for Central Queensland next Tuesday

With ANZAC Day on next Tuesday 25 April, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) has released details of planned flypasts during Queensland commemorations - including some Central Queensland locations. 

Details from the RAAF flypasts for Anzac Day for Australia webpage  ( indicate a single F/A-18F Super Hornet aircraft from Number 1 Squadron based at RAAF Base Amberley will conduct a flypast of ANZAC Day commemoration activities on Tuesday 25 April around Queensland, including in the Fraser Coast region as shown:

Meanwhile, a single RAAF Alenia C-27J Spartan transport aircraft from Number 35 Squadron at RAAF Base Amberley is expected to flypast at locations in the Southern part Queensland including some locations in CQ like Miles.

Sadly, the 'usual' sight of a RAAF C-17A Globemaster transport aircraft from Number 36 Squadron at RAAF Base Amberley is not occurring this year.

ANZAC Day is a time to reflect on the contribution made by past and present service personnel who have displayed great courage, discipline and self-sacrifice in choosing a life of service to their country.

The RAAF 'Flying Operations' also reminds everyone that "All Air Force flypasts can be cancelled or changed subject to weather, operational requirements or other aviation considerations. For public safety, drones must not be operated in the vicinity of flypasts."
