QVG & RAAF ANZAC Memorial Flight

G’day IFC,

Last night, over 20 pilots connected the capitals of Australia and New Zealand to commemorate the ANZAC soldiers who fought ever so bravely in both World Wars. We had a great attendance from both QVG and GAF RAAF pilots who paid their respects after taking off with a flyover of the Australian War Memorial in Canberra.
