It’s all over

Pitch Black 12 finishes officially today and soon the skies over Darwin will once again be the semi-exclusive province of the commercial pilots. No more formation flying or military jets going “hell for leather”.

As a finale I wanted to show you a few shots of various planes coming in to land over Coconut Grove. The carpark on Totem Road was a popular viewing spot.

The RSAF KC-135 Stratotanker (the mid-air refuelling aircraft)

The RAAF Hercules.

RSAF Military Jet: I think it’s the F-15 Eagle. Not a sharp enough pic really.

The RSAF again but not sure which aircraft. Any advice?

If I’ve got the identification of these aircraft incorrect I’ll happily make the correction – please leave a comment by clicking in the bubble beside the title of the post.

For those of you who aren’t into planes, you’ll be pleased to know tomorrow will be a return to more cultural matters with images from the Darwin Aboriginal Art Show last weekend. As much fun as the planes only different.
