Eight RAAF F/A-18 Hornets and six Indonesian Air Force (TNI-AU) F-16s are among the aircraft from both nations taking part in the bilateral Elang Ausindo 2011 exercise, which began on September 5.

The RAAF has deployed eight F/A-18A Hornets, two C-130 Hercules and one C-17A Globemaster to Bali’s Ngurah Rai Airport, as they exercise with the six TNI-AU F-16s plus two C-130s.

The RAAF contingent is led by Commander Air Combat Group, AIRCDRE Mel Hupfield, while the TNI-AU’s Colonel Emir Panji Dermawan heads the Indonesian force.

    Good to see Australia keeping the relationship with Indonesia burbling along. I wonder how long it will be before(if ever) Australia`s F-18s get to play with the indonesian flankers. Would love to be a fly on the wall for that one.

    Allan – When you mentioned the Super Hornets aren’t an option, check out this website http://www.newaustralia.net/defence_airforce.html – Saving Billions on Air Force. You’ll see all the options and comparisons of different aircraft to suit the RAAFs requirements as an cancellation of the JSF etc.

    Hi Peter,

    Thanks for the heads up on that site, It makes for interesting viewing. Even though there are some arguments to buy non US aircraft, I can`t see Australia jeopardising our good relations with the US to buy Russian planes do you? Although it would be an interesting choice.
