RAAF Centenary Air Pilgrimage – seeking expressions of interest

The Red Thunder Centennial Air Pilgrimage to the Avalon Airshow 2021 is planned to celebrate 100 years of the Royal Australian Air Force and culminate with flying into Avalon Airshow 2021, the biggest Airshow Australia has ever held!

We’re looking for 100 aircraft, to celebrate 100 years, flown by pilots that are motivated to showcase Australian aviation through our country towns bearing significant military history. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to fly with like-minded aviation enthusiasts in celebration of this aviation milestone and to both showcase at and enjoy the Avalon Airshow 2021.

Current plans are to congregate on Monday 22nd of February and commence a pilgrimage through a series of towns, to arrive at Avalon (main) on Thursday the 25th of February and be on ‘static-display’ till the airshow’s end on Sunday the 28th of February 2021. Staging fields are yet to be confirmed and will be announced at the earliest opportunity.

To ensure your invitation to this very limited opportunity, please register your interest on the Red Thunder Website.  We look forward to bringing you further details of staging airfields and final commitment procedures, as they come to hand.
