The Royal Australian Air Force’s (RAAF) F/A-18F Super Hornets are to fly over Adelaide in South Australia to conduct the first live weapons trials.
The trials will be conducted by No 1 Squadron from RAAF Amberley in Queensland at the Woomera Test Range, north of Adelaide between 30 August 2010 and 15 September 2010.
The weapon trials and deployment will assist No 1 Squadron in achieving initial operational capability by December 2010.
The initial operational capability will lead to the formation of Australia’s first operational air-combat-capable Super Hornet squadron including 12 aircraft, trained personnel, weapons and logistics support.
