In Brisbane (Capitol of Queensland Australia) the other day we had 20 Super Hornet jets do a fly over. It was a shame that it was a very cloudy day, but still most people got to see the formation. Unfortunately I could hear them, but the cloud cover in my area prevented me from actually seeing them. The fly over was basically to mark the arrival of four new jets. From some of the pictures that people sent in to the newspaper, I’m sure the city came to a standstill while waiting for the jets to pass. 😀

It wasn’t only Brisbane these jets flew over, they left from the RAAF base at Amberley, and they went as far north as Tewantin on the Sunshine Coast and then all the way south to the New South Wales border. The distance is roughly about 500 km or 315 miles.
