ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS EVER – would not be an overstatement.
This years Wings Over Illawarra air show was simply awesome. Perfect weather, large crowds and great support from the ADF.
Unlike some previous WoI shows, there wasn’t even a hint of wind – the seasonal blusteries turning up a week later.
One also had to remind oneself that Wings Over Illawarra is held in May – i.e. late Autumn – as one basked and baked in mid-20s full sun.
Actually, I went well prepared this year (for a change), with deckchair, water, umbrella (for sun shade) and plenty of coin for saussage sangers – and had a great two days of air and ground action.
I was so pleased that the ADF got behind this great air show in force this year. In fact, there isn’t much on the ADF’s air-power inventory that wasn’t represented.
Wings Over Illawarra is an annual airshow, just 90 minutes drive from Sydney – and five minutes drive from CONTACT HQ.
