2021 BRISBANE AIRSHOW POSTPONED
NEW AIRSHOW DATES
16th & 17th of OCTOBER 2021
Owing to recent lockdown restrictions beyond our control, it is with deep regret that we must announce that the Brisbane Airshow, due to take place at the Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield over the coming weekend of the 3rd and 4th of July 2021, has been postponed.
Based on these restrictions and our commitment to deliver a safe Airshow, the event has been postponed to the weekend of the 16th and 17th of OCTOBER 2021.
Government imposed COVID lockdown restrictions, designed to reduce the increasing risk of the Delta and Alpha variants of COVID, now prevents key flight crew, Aviation Expo, Display Aircraft, and patrons from attending the show. This directly affects our ability to deliver a safe airshow.
The aggressive nature of the COVID Delta variant and the inevitable disruption to this weekend’s event schedule, has moved us to adopt a stance which supports our community’s health and our commitment to deliver a quality Airshow.
PLEASE JOIN FORCES WITH US, POSTPONE and GET A JAB
COVID requires a collective response. Please ‘roll’ with us to the 16th and 17th of October 2021 and enjoy one of Australia’s finest Airshows, where we will be better placed to deliver a healthier, safer, wider immunised airshow.
We want to take this opportunity to thank all our supporters, patrons, suppliers, and aeronautical fans for their contribution to the Brisbane Airshow. Without your support the show simply could not go on.
The postponement options available to you are as follows:
• Keep your current ticket and turn up on the corresponding dates in OCTOBER 2021, or
• Apply for a refund. (Valid for 7 days)

LEST WE FORGET
John Dibbs - The Plane Picture Company
December 7 - on this day in 1941 the surprise attack against the United States at Pearl Harbor and Hawai’i led to a second World War.
The horrific destruction of the battleship USS Arizona was documented at the time and became a symbol of both the attack itself and, in a broader context, that entire period of history.
The sunken warship is now a monument to those that fell on that day, and there is an eerie calm to the same place where such violence was wrought, early one December morning.
Here, an Arizona Air National Guard F-16 overflies the sunken hull with 900 of the 1,177 souls lost that day still entombed in the ship.
The ‘Arizona’ is a designated war grave, and this sobering image shows those serving today paying tribute to those that served before and who paid the ultimate price.
I haven't posted any videos to my page in a while, so thought I'd share these clips of the local P-51 Mustangs beating up Paine Field during Vintage Aircraft Weekend last month. Enjoy!

The Battle of Britain ended 80 years ago today.
N**i Germany hoped to force British capitulation through an air and sea blockade.
The Battle of Britain prevented the former. The contest for the seas around Britain would go on until the end of the war.
The United Kingdom was never subdued. Five years later, with the Allies advancing into Germany from all sides and Berlin in Soviet hands, N**i Germany surrendered.

Brisbane’s new runway is a project that has been five decades in the planning and under construction for eight years. On Sunday 12 July 2020, Brisbane's new runway officially opened.
The first departure was Virgin Australia flight VA 781 from Brisbane to Cairns. This flight marked the anniversary of the very first flight between Brisbane and Explore Tropical North Queensland by Barrier Reef Airways which took off 73 years to the day on 12 July 1947.
In an Australian first for a capital city airport an uninhibited, spectacular aerobatics show of four historic aircraft conducted a flyover of Brisbane’s new runway in a nod to BNE’s military history. The Spitfire MK-XVI was the first aircraft to land on Brisbane's new runway, thanks to our friends at Fighter Pilot Adventure Flights.
