RAAF training goes sky high
LOOKING toward the night sky, you may notice activity from Royal Australian Air Force jets this week as part of the Number 33 Fighter Combat Instructors Course.
Aircraft will be operating until Friday as part of the training exercise and will involve day and night flying until 10.30pm.
Commander Air Combat Group's Steve Roberton said the FCI pilots were in the final stage of a five month course involving exercises with F/A-18F Super Hornets from RAAF Base Amberley, near Brisbane and F/A-18 Hornet aircraft from RAAF Base Williamtown, near Newcastle.
The course is also supported by the E-7A Wedgetail from 2 Squadron and the KC-30 Multi-Role Tanker.
All aircraft taking part in the exercise will operate at least 4500 metres above sea level.
