The weather on the day of the Sydney flypast was crap. We THINK we heard them, but it was a brief sound from above the clouds. Disappointing to say the least that they didn't get below the cloud base and give a final glimpse for the Sydney public. The helicopter hovering above the Neutral Bay area seemed well placed for photos for a short period, but they too missed the opportunity. Oh well, glad I got to Willy for the Defence Airshow then.

No worries Mark - I rarely took the camera away from the action.

The elevated angle.

And Brisbane borrowed some of that Sydney weather and turned on a sky with every shade of grey for today's farewell.

Five plus two out of the gloom heading for the CBD.

The final sermon from the mount as two new kids on the block escort the old blokes on a last lap of the Brisbane CBD.

Geez I reckon these F-18s are so boring compared to the Pig :-(
Brother: Do you really need that many Phantoms?
Me: Don't make me kick you outta the shed for asking dumb questions
Brother: But are you gonna build all these models?
Me: Yeah of course I am. Now get outta my shed
