So good, we had to bring it to you twice. The Royal Australian Air Force has released new high quality images of the commemorative 70th Anniversary livery on 75 Squadron F/A-18 Hornet A21-38, pictured on the tarmac at RAAF Base Tindal in bright sunshine following what's probably a Top End shower. A vast improvement over the pics from Bersama Lima, which were unfortunately slightly backlit and shot under very harsh lighting conditions. More photos of this plane can be found at the Australian Defence Force's Photo Gallery by searching for "Hornet" (among other search terms)

While we're on the topic, Temora Aviation Museum in New South Wales has just announced that a RAAF Hornet will be performing at their inaugural Warbirds Downunder airshow on November 19th. I have heard that Temora is also working on bringing this aircraft down to the show on static. I'm keeping my fingers crossed they're successful!
