The confirmed aircraft perfectly represent the main theme of the 2017 edition: Air Power in Action.

Next 3 to 5 March at Avalon Airport, near Geelong, Victoria, the most advanced aircraft in the world will be shown to the public in static and flight display.

Marvel as jet fighters, strike bombers and heavy lift leviathans are joined by swarms of attack helicopters, from home and abroad, for a series of breathtaking routines and simulated combat manoeuvres.

The event also features the best collection of aerobatic daredevils ever to be gathered together for an Australian air show.

Their high flying antics and precision manoeuvres promise to leave the crowd spellbound.

There will also be historic aircraft from the classic years of aviation and the most comprehensive collection of World War II aircraft ever to soar skyward at Avalon.

On the ground military re-enactment groups will turn back the pages of history.

Their lifelike recreation of famous Australian Army land battles will be enhanced by authentic period uniforms, vehicles, artillery and weaponry.

The aerospace showcase will feature the technology of tomorrow.

Hundreds of the world’s leading innovators will display their latest and most exciting aerospace, aviation and defence products and inventions.

During the three days the public can admire on ground and in the air the USAF F-22 Raptor, USAF B-1B, RAAF F-18F Super Hornet, RAAF F-35A Lightning II, RSAF F-16 and many others (full list available here).

It will be the first appearance of the F-35 in Australia as announced earlier this month (Read the story).

The event also includes industry-only trade days from Tuesday 28 February to Friday 3 March.
