How about a USMC F-35B or two from MCAS Iwakuni, Japan travel SOUTH? B)

It would be nice if some of the USMC assets that frequent Darwin could come south. I still haven't seen a V-22 Osprey.

The other Avalon publicity shot shows both F-22 and F-35 so hopefully that isn't more empty promises.

I can't see the point (as in this years show) of bringing the F-22 and not flying it. The stories about the display pilot not being available are a poor excuse. Surely any F-22 qualified pilot can do some sort of flying display or they really shouldn't be flying the thing! Even a take off, a touch'n'go and a few circuits would be better than just a static display.

As for the A400M leaving before the public flying days what an insult to the Australian public.

Avalon really needs to lift its game or it will become nothing more than a trade symposium with no public support. Maybe that's what they want, no more pesty public!

Australian F-35s at Avalon 25 Jan 2017 Katherine Ziesing | Canberra

"ADM [Australian Defence Magazine] understands that both AU-1 and AU-2, the first Australian F-35A JSFs, are planning on making their Avalon debut this year. [How do aircraft 'plan'?]

This of course is subject to availability, but it will be the first time locals will be able to see the jets up close on the static line. Both jets are currently working at Luke Air Force Base as part of the international training pool. The ADF currently has four pilots (all instructors) and four maintainers (three RAAF and one CASG) at Luke undergoing training...."

Joint Strike Fighter to make Australian Debut at the Australian International Airshow 07 Feb 2017 AFHQ
QUOTE
"...“The Joint Strike Fighter will be joined at the Airshow by Australia’s first EA-18G Growler,” Minister Payne said. “Together, the F-35A Joint Strike Fighter and the EA-18G Growler represent a potent and technologically advanced air combat and strike capability that is essential to our ability to defend Australia and our national interests. “Australia is the only country outside the United States operating the EA-18G Growler and its arrival represents a significant leap forward in our capability, introducing a dedicated electronic attack capability for the first time.”

Minister Pyne said this would be one of the most exciting airshows the ADF had organised, representing a significant occasion for defence industry. “The EA-18G Growler and F-35A Lightning II represent the latest in cutting edge aviation technology, and include some of the very best of Australian industry,” he said....

...The first two F-35A aircraft, AU-001 and AU-002 will arrive at the airshow on Friday 3 March, returning to the United States via RAAF Base Amberley allowing Australian pilots to continue their training. The visit is a significant contribution by the United States Air Force Training Command, and Lockheed Martin to facilitate the deployment from Luke Air Force Base during their training period...."
