The Hornets, from Number 77 Squadron at RAAF Base Williamtown, NSW, will fly at speeds up to 640 kph at an altitude not below 152 metres above buildings. The aircraft will fly north in close formation heading up Anzac Parade to overfly the Korean Memorial.

The RAAF says its flypasts are conducted within strict limitations. Safety, noise reduction and the environment are vital considerations in planning for, and the conduct, of flypast activities.
