Australia day FA-18 flypast

I got lucky today, right place right time! 4 of these beauties did a lap of the bay, and luckily passed right over my head!

Here it comes

Closer!


OMG so close! 200ft!

Then this stuck up behind me!


And our US mates joined in on the party!


And this gannet put on its own display!

Wow, great pics of the F/A-18 Hornet.  I actually have an old simmulator program/game (1995)  for the F/A-18 and, an updated version (2002).  Been playing that quite a bit.
