RAAF F/A-18A Hornet A21-033 over Parkes NSW
Lens: DA*300 Camera: K-3ii Photo Location: Parkes ISO: 200 Shutter Speed: 1/1000s Aperture: F8

A couple of shots from yesterday taken at Parkes, NSW. It was only a quick handling display as it flew from Williamtown and back again in support of a small regional airshow. Started the routine at 500ft inbound from the East, performed a few high rate low level turns and ended with a vertical departure over the crowd to a roll out at ~20,000ft.

I was out of practice tracking fast moving targets and consequently my shooting was contemptible.

The RAAF Hornets only have two years left before they're decommissioned. They're all over 30 years old now and still put on an impressive performance.

To be replaced by F-35s? Good luck with that.
