RAAF Base Edinburgh, on the outskirts of Adelaide, will open its gates to the public on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 November 2019 for an exhilarating, action packed Air Show in November.

The two day event will showcase advances in aviation technology during the 100 years since Sir Ross and Sir Keith Smith made their epic flight from England to Australia.

The public will have a rare opportunity to see some of the Australian Defence Force’s most advanced military aircraft including the latest fifth generation fighter aircraft, the F-35A Joint Strike Fighter, and Defence technologies in addition to historic and vintage aircraft.

Crowds can expect to see more than four hours of flying displays on each day with the full range of ADF fast jets, transport and rotary wing aircraft taking part in the Air Show.

Vimy to Fifth Generation in 100 years

The theme of the Edinburgh Air Show is ‘Vimy to Fifth Generation in 100 years’.

The Air Show will commemorate the Centenary of the epic flight in November 1919 of notable South Australians Sir Ross Smith and his brother, Sir Keith Smith, who flew from England to Australia in 1919 in a Vickers Vimy to win the Great Air Race.
