It is a much looked forward to airshow for both aviation enthusiasts and the general public.
It is a good family day out with lots to see both in the air and on the ground. Little ones will not be frightened by the thunderous noise from the latest in military jets. No need to bring your earplugs.
Most airshows open with parachute descents and Tyabb is usually no exception as the skydivers, as they are called, jump from a perfectly good aeroplane and float back to earth trailing a plume of orange smoke. Fortunately, the pilot of the aircraft doesn't follow them.
There will be many ex-military aircraft to view up close and in the air. There is something nostalgic about the sound of high powered piston engines roaring past at a sedate couple of hundred kilometres per hour.
The one aeronautical activity that makes you glad you are on solid earth is the extreme aerobatics demonstrations. They are usually performed by small purpose-built single-seat aircraft. Leaving a smoke trail, they get their aircraft into positions that look impossible.
