The Australian Defence Force has announced that South Australia will host the next Defence Air Show on 9 and 10 November 2019.
RAAF Base Edinburgh, on the outskirts of Adelaide, will open its gates to the public for an exhilarating, action packed Air Show.
The two day event will showcase advances in aviation technology during the 100 years since Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith made their epic flight from England to Australia.
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 Joint Strike Fighter, 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.
The theme of the Edinburgh Air Show is ‘Vimy to Fifth Generation in 100 years’.
The Air Show will commemorate the Centenary of the epic flight in November 1919 of notable South Australians 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.
The cost of tickets includes free public transport to and from RAAF Base Edinburgh or limited free off-site parking with shuttle bus transfers to RAAF Base Edinburgh if you prefer to drive.
