RAAF C-17A with ARH Tiger and MRH90 Taipan Helicopters at Brisbane Riverfire 2021

Here are some photos of the RAAF C-17A along with ARH Tiger and MRH90 Taipan Helicopters at Brisbane Riverfire 2021, on their dress rehearsal on Thursday 23rd Sept 2021.

No fast jets this year.

The C-17A performed 2 passes along the Brisbane River; the 1st at 1,000ft with the 2nd at "no less than 300 ft" according to the RAAF website.

Cheers

Dennis

Missed those ones. Superb photos Dennis. Always interesting to see large aircrafts flying below the buildings skyline.

Great images Dennis

In looking into the question posed by Hans on the multiple C17 aircraft I found this...
Apparently they were training (MAX the volume for aircraft sound, but excuse the language in the video & go FULL screen)

Best

Thanks Col, Gary, Marc, Leon, Hans, Steve & JA, I appreciate your comments.

The event was cancelled in 2020 due to CV-19 so the last time I photographed the C17-A was back in 2019 and I had forgotten how big the beast is, as well as its amazing agility.

I was a little rusty as these are the only aircraft events that I go to, so I adopted the “spray and pray” method as the EOS R5 has a much larger image buffer than my older Canon DSLRs.

This led to a lot of tedious culling, but also gave the opportunity to make a composite aligned on the buildings, so I could blend in several frames to show the C17-A on its 300 feet pass.

The composite C17-A image attached to this post is from 2018 where I was shooting from the top of the Kangaroo Point Cliffs.

Some colourful language in that clip JA.

Cheers

Dennis

Spectacular image! From an admirer of good aircraft photos.

Not that I ever saw it over the BNE River (though I have seen one) the F111 "dump & burn" would have been great to see, and photograph?
