Australian International Airshow 2017 – Warbirds & Aerobatics Flyers

Naturally there were numerous warbirds and aerobatic flying displays at the Avalon Australian International Airshow 2017 including an explosive pyrotechnic show by the ORIS “Tin Stix of Dynamite” team American Skip Stewart and triple world aerobatics champion Jurgus Kairys from Lithuania in their Super Pitts and Sukhoi Su-31 aerobatic aircraft. World War Two era warbirds including a USAAF Curtiss P-40N Warhawk; and RAAF CAC Boomerang and Supermarine Spitfire Mk.VIII were naturally a sentimental crowd favourite.

There were also commercial aircraft flying and plenty of static displays covering all aspects of aviation and military tech but as usual there is never enough time to see it all and the flying displays in one day! All in all another great air show!
