    Keep this in your diary for the 4th and 5th October 2008. Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Amberley will be hosting the Australian Defence Force Air and Ground Display. I will be going for the 2 day events and can hardly wait. As soon as possible I will place photos on the site. To my fellow Aussies hope to see you there.

    Well as promised to myself I went to the ADF Air Display at RAAF Amberley Queensland Australia. I have taken 98 photos on my digital camera and I will share some of them on the WebSite. I hope you enjoy the photos.

    To say the least I was totally excited about going out to Amberley. My mate and myself travelled out to Amberley first by Train and Shuttle Bus. And were entertained from right from start to finish on arrival at the Base. I hope you enjoy the photos and I have given you an example. Yes I have to admit I photographed everything within camera range and I have only included some of the photos I took. I would share more but I am totally flaked out sunburnt and I am sure one of the moderators would get upset as I have posted to many photos hahaha

    Thank you Wayne and Micdrow. My Wife Daughter and I will be going out again today back to Amberley. The one Air Craft I did not get to photo was a Hudson Bomber. I have it on video flying but I really want to get a Photo of the Hudson and more photos of F111s as this will be the last time the Flying Pigs will take part in a Air Display in Queensland as they are to be replaced after 2010. They also had a Gloster Meteor and a de Haviland Vampire flying both of which I got on video as well and these 2 need to be photographed by me

    Ok as I said to Wildcat. The Avon Sabre had been at Amberley since mid 1968 and I remember seeing it there in that time. The Mirage was at the 2004 ADF Display Amberley. The Mitchell was found about 6 years ago in PNG brought back and restored. I found the other War Birds the Vampire and Meteor, but unfortunately I couldn't really get a good shot of the Hudson. I included the F111s as they are to be placed into HISTORY soon and retired from the RAAF

    Nice shots. We only have one Winjeel in this hemisphere, so it's nice to see other examples.
