On 31 March 2021, Sigma Bravo teammates attended a celebration of the Airforce centenary, with a flypast of more than 60 aircraft over Canberra.
Our teams were positioned at various vantage points around Lake Burley Griffin. The flypast event was the ideal opportunity for the Sigma Bravo team to see their work in action.
A Unique Contrast of Aircraft Capability
The line-up featured fifth-generation air combat capability, air mobility, intelligence, surveillance & reconnaissance, and aviation training and highlighted the full spectrum of Airforce capabilities.
For over an hour, Canberra skies were filled with an exciting range of current and historic aircraft.
Among the line-up, F/A-18 Hornet, C17A Globemaster III, C-130J Hercules, C-27J Spartan, P8-A Poseidon, EA-18G Growler, PC-21, as well as vintage warbirds, all flying in perfect formation.
The Sigma Bravo team finished the event feeling enthusiastic and proud of what was an incredible demonstration of RAAF aircraft capability.
