As impressive as it was, the public unveiling of the Royal Australian Air Force’s new EA-18G Growler electronic attack aircraft was not the only show in town on the opening day of the 2017 Avalon Airshow.
The PC-21 training aircraft that is being acquired under the AIR 5428 pilot training system project was also on display having recently arrived from Switzerland.
And the P-8A Poseidon maritime patrol aircraft made its Avalon debut with RAAF markings, having arrived in Australia in November.
