The parade will commence 9.50am.

Approximately 700 cadets and staff will march in town after forming up in King George Square.

The best public views should be from Adelaide Street in the city.

A C-17A Globemaster III will conduct a flypast of the Brisbane CBD in support of the Australia Air Force Cadet Freedom of Entry Parade to the City of Brisbane.

The flypast will occur at 10:10am.

The Globemaster is operated by No. 36 Squadron and is one of eight aircraft in service based at RAAF Amberley near Ipswich.

The Air Force appreciates the support it receives from the residents of the Brisbane and South East Queensland regions and is proud to support this significant event.

The flypast could be cancelled at short notice because of operational imperatives, aircraft serviceability or air-traffic control concerns. Close coordination will occur with Brisbane Air Traffic Control prior to the flypast.
