DEFENCE is warning that they’ll be joining in the Skyfire show tomorrow with their own things that go zoom and bang prior to the fireworks.
Australia’s Federation Guard will conduct Precision Drill Team displays and fire artillery guns from Gallipoli Reach and two Royal Australian Navy Squirrel Helicopters and a Royal Australian Air Force Hawk 127 will take to the skies for aerial displays on the night.
Major Francois Nozaic, Officer Commanding of Australia’s Federation Guard, says Skyfire is an opportunity to celebrate the Centenary of Anzac and the 15th birthday of Australia’s Federation Guard with the Canberra community.
