2017 Visit to RAAF Base Pearce

UFC Club Members visited RAAF Pearce for the June 2017 Flying School Graduations. It was a great day out and an educational view behind the scenes of our local Air Base. The event included a graduation parade, aerobatic and formation displays from the PC-9s and Hawks. A big thanks to the RAAF for allowing us to visit.
