Highlight of the Airshow included a display by the Air Force Roulettes the RAAF’s aerobatic display team who flew up from their base in East Sale in Victoria.

Central Coast Aero Club General Manager, Andrew Smith said the weekend had been a great success and provided a big boost to the Central Coast economy.
