Traffic: Aircraft Movement From Across the Region

Defence 

The RAAF formally retired its fleet of single-seat F/A-18A and two-seat F/A-18B Classic Hornets on 29 November, after over 35 years of service. Since entering into service with the RAAF in 1986, Air Force has welcomed 75 Classic Hornets, operated by No. 75 Squadron at RAAF Base Tindal, and Nos. 3 and 77 Squadrons at RAAF Base Williamtown.

In its over three decades of service, the Classic Hornet multirole fighter fleet has completed more than 400,000 flight hours across thousands of missions. To honour the occasion, the RAAF hosted a ceremony at RAAF Base Williamtown, attended by Minister for Defence Peter Dutton and nearly 500 people.
