Point Cook 2008 Air Pageant Photo Gallery
In February 2008 the RAAF Museum at Point Cook hosted its bi-annual Air Pageant. It was a tremendous day with good crowds and a a great aerial display. The weather was fine and sunny, as you will see in the pics. The flying displays included a shark-mouth formation with Mustang, Kittyhawk and Spitfire doing a formation display, Mustang formation, Harvard formation, helicopter rescue demonstration, Herc and Caribou shows, aerobatics by Pip Borrman and displays by Boomerang and Wirraway aircraft.

This event is well worth the effort to catch, so keep an eye out for the next one on the GrubbyDates page.
