Remarks: Great Balls of Fire! Australian Army Sikorsky S-70A-9 A25-222 (Named 'Sabre'), just manages to out-run the pyro-technic fireballs at the Avalon International Airshow on Saturday 05Mar2011. The fireballs were part of a simulated ground attack sequence by the Purple Cobras Aerobatic Team, flying Classic F/A-18A Hornets.
Remarks: "Tenacious" (Del 5/90) preparing to depart using the callsign "Blackhawk 213" after attending the Aviation Careers Expo run by Aviation Australia. Just prior to take off the chopper returned to parking and shut down with a maintenance issue that would require 24hrs to rectify.
