It's been two years since the last airshow! Avalon 2011 has just passed by and once again I attended with great excitement. Here's a collection of pics that display my other major love - Aviation!

Even though this is an Air Force-centric show, the Army and the Navy had their turn to show off their helicopters (they likely insisted). This is the Australian Army Black Hawk helicopter (the same helicopter from that one movie where they crash).

The Black Hawk in this display served as a part of a mock tactical ground exercise, dispensing ground troops whilst a flight of Hornets provided 'suppressive cover'. When the Hornets flew overhead, simulated explosions provided by pyrotechnics staff shook the airfield, sending balls of fire into the sky.

The Black Hawk remains the primary helicopter of the Australian Army and there are no plans to replace it. Why fix what ain't broke?
