Super Hornets to buzz region

THREE single F/A-18F Super Hornets from RAAF Amberley will perform a number of flypasts over Queensland today, including Rockhampton about 11.30am.

The Super Hornets are the replacement for the Australia’s F-111s, which were retired after almost 40 years service at the end of last year.

Acting Mayor and chair of Rockhampton’s Anzac Day Committee, Cr Rose Swadling, said it would be marvellous to see the new fighters in the skies over the Rockhampton region on Anzac Day.

“We all saw the last of the F-111s at Rockhampton’s Anzac Day service last year, so it will be a great highlight to our region’s Anzac Day commemorations to see the F/A-18F Super Hornet fly over our region,” Cr Swadling said.

She said the flyover would coincide with the Riverside Park service, to be held after the Rockhampton Anzac Day march.
