Warbirds Downunder will be returning to the Warbird Airshow scene in 2018. Historically this event has been staged during November, but after much consultation, the decision has been made to bring Warbirds Downunder forward to October 12th and 13th 2018 to avoid the warmer weather conditions experienced during previous events.
Warbirds Downunder 2018 will encompass both an evening airshow on Friday October 12th and a full airshow program on Saturday October 13th.
Warbirds Downunder 2015 saw the largest gathering of Warbird Aircraft Australia has ever seen, and the 2018 airshow promises to be just as impressive – with the possibility of some added extras. The full line-up of aircraft will be published as the 2018 airshow approaches, but until then rest assured that Warbirds Downunder 2018 will once again be the largest gathering of Warbird Aircraft in Australia.
