Where:     RAAF Base Richmond, NSW

F/A-18A/B Hornet and Hawk 127 lead in fighter jet aircraft will conduct diversion training at RAAF Base Richmond on Tuesday (15 July), and Thursday (17 July).

The Hornet and Hawk aircraft from RAAF Base Williamtown, near Newcastle, will conduct circuit training including ‘touch-and-go’ landings intermittently over the next four weeks.

The ability to land at alternate airfields is an essential part of pilot training on the Hornet and Hawk aircraft.  Richmond is the primary diversion airfield for RAAF Base Williamtown.

This training will also include an Instrument Landing System (ILS) approach, which assists pilots to land at night or in poor weather conditions.

Residents should note that these dates and times are subject to change.

Noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military activity, and Air Force appreciates the ongoing support of the Hawkesbury community during these training activities.

For further information on RAAF Williamtown flying activities, members of the community are encouraged to ring RAAF Base Williamtown 1800 033 200, or log on to the website to receive updates on Hawk/Hornet aircraft diversions – see link http://www.airforce.gov.au/flyingareawilliamtown.

Thanks to Airforce NSW for the info
