The Airshow has become one of Australia’s largest major events, with hundreds of thousands flocking to the public days of the show to see some of the most amazing flying machines ever seen.

It is one of the few chances people have to get up close to huge military aircraft and some of the more interesting planes and helicopters around.

As well as stationary aircraft which many are open to the public, there is a huge expo area where most of the worlds major aircraft and component manufactures show their new products.

But the main interest is the flying displays. Every minute of the event there is a flying program, from the smallest of recreational home made aircraft to the monsters of warfare showing their capabilities.

One highlight is the Friday night-time spectacular when fighter jets fire their after burners and mock wars are staged.
