Super Hornets to buzz the Gold Coast in epic ‘security capability display’

Get ready adrenaline junkies, you’re in for a treat today with two super hornets set to fly over the Gold Coast in a security capability demonstration ahead of the Commonwealth Games.

The Queensland Police Service and Australian Defence Force will hold a media conference at Broadwater Parklands on Monday as they show off a number of their emergency response units for the Games.

Deputy Commissioner Steve Gollschewski, Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Corporation Chairman Peter Beattie and the Commander of the Australian Defence Force’s support to the Games, Major General Paul McLachlan will be speaking at the conference.


If you happen to be in or around the area at 10am, you’ll be treated to the sight (and sound) of two FA-18F Hornet aircraft flying over the Broadwater Parklands.

The GC2018 security capability display for media will also include displays from Australian Army Engineers, Special Emergency Response Team (SERT), QPS Dog Squad and Mounted Unit as well as a counter unmanned aircraft system device (DroneGun).
