USAF F-22, F-16 and C-17 flying displays confirmed for Avalon Airshow

F-22 at 2011's Avalon Airshow. The F-22s were static only the last time they swung by the neighbourhood.

From Avalon Airshow's Facebook page:

The United States Air Force has just confirmed that its top-of-the-line fighter, the F-22 Raptor will return to Avalon for the first flying display ever seen in Australia.

Two F-22 Raptors and their teams will be attending the 2013 Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition, with one of the aircraft on static display.

Major Henry 'Schadow' Schantz is the United States Air Force F-22 Raptor Aerial Demonstration Team Chief and will be showcasing the aircraft's amazing maneuverability for the Airshow crowds.

The United States Air Force is once again showing its long standing support for the Avalon event and is also bringing an F-16 demonstration team (Ed: Almost certainly the PACAF F-16 display team from the 35th Fighter Wing based at Misawa, Japan) for the flying display along with a C-17 demonstration team.
