RAAF’s NEW FIGHTER JETS ARRIVE

The first of the RAAF’s new fleet of Strike Fighter aircraft, have touched down in Queensland on their way to Newcastle.

Two F-35s left the Luke Airforce base in Arizona earlier this week for a delivery flight across the Pacific.

The jets were accompanied by air-refuelling aircraft, and transporters, bringing freshly trained RAAF personnel and equipment.

The Strike Flighters are due to arrive at their new home base at Williamtown on Monday.
