Aircraft and Exhibits at Warbirds Downunder 2018
Warbirds Downunder will be returning to the Warbird Airshow scene in 2018. Warbirds Downunder 2018 will encompass both an evening airshow on Friday October 12th 2018 and a full airshow programme on Saturday October 13th 2018. Warbirds Downunder 2015 saw the largest gathering of Warbird Aircraft Australia has ever seen, and the 2018 show promises to be just as impressive – with the possibility of some added extras. The full line-up of aircraft will be published as the 2018 airshow approaches, but until then rest assured that Warbirds Downunder will once again be the largest gathering of Warbird Aircraft in Australia.
