Get ready adrenaline junkies, you’re in for a treat today with the Royal Australian Air Force announcing that they will be conducting a low level flying exercise over the Gold Coast with two of their most potent weapons.

Two F/A-18F aircraft will fly as low as 45m above ground level and travel at speeds up to 555km/hr off the coast today.

The Royal Australian Airforce said the aircraft will depart from Amberley at 2.00pm and transit to the western airspace in South-West Queensland for high level air to air training before descending to begin the low level navigation exercise from south-western Queensland to Evans Head.


“The aircraft will transit northbound along the coast at low level all the way to the Sunshine Coast before returning to Amberley,” the Airforce confirmed.
