F-111s to light up Ipswich carols

Recommended Posts



FORGET Riverfire – the upcoming Ipswich Mayor's Christmas Carols by Candlelight will feature the final F-111 dump-and-burn.


The RAAF Base Amberley-based jets are set to be decommissioned next month and their replacements, the F/A-18F Super Hornet, cannot perform the crowd-pleasing stunt. Wing Commander Micka Gray, Commanding Officer No 6 Squadron, said a dump-and-burn would be performed at the carols event as a thank-you to the Ipswich community. He said the city had always supported the jets and all RAAF Base Amberley personnel.


“It's a good way for the Ipswich community to see the F-111s for the last time,” Wing Commander Gray said. “We just want to thank the people of Ipswich for their ongoing support for the F-111.”
