Here’s one of the best air show party tricks ever… an Royal Australian Air Force F-111C doing the ‘Dump And Burn” for an exciting entry into it’s aerobatic routine at an Avalon Air Show. The RAAF retired the last operational F-111 in the world in 2010; the USAF had retired their last version in 1998, when the last EF-111A “Spark Varks” flew.

Here’s our second volume of random warbirds taken by our group of talented photographers. Remember, look for this feature every third weekend of the month here at .
