RAAF C-130J Formation Flight
On 11 March 2015, No 37 Squadron (37SQN) flew a six-ship formation of C-130J Hercules transport aircraft on a tactical training flight over rural New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, and western Sydney. The purpose of the flight was to allow 37SQN to maintain currency in tactical formation flying as well as prepare for its role in forthcoming Operation SLIPPER Welcome Home Parades on 21 March 2015. The flight on March 11 was also an opportunity for 37SQN and Air Mobility Group to utilise a newly-installed Satellite Communications (SATCOM) capability, and demonstrate the C-130J airborne working environment to industry partners who support the aircraft.
