A Super Hornet F/A 18F will zoom its way down above Currumbin Creek at 11:00am this ANZAC Day as an emotional tribute to our fallen soldiers at the Currumbin RSL Mid-morning ANZAC Day Service on Thursday 25 April.

The Super Hornet will come from Amberley Air Base just south of Brisbane.

The Super Hornet will make its approach from the west over the Hinterland and head east down Currumbin Creek past Currumbin RSL and then head out over the ocean.

The organisation of the fly past is the work of Currumbin RSL Sub Branch Members Mr Roger Collins and Mr Bernie Reinke.

Mr Collins said, “We are absolutely thrilled to again have a Super Hornet fly past for our mid-morning ANZAC Day service. We are very grateful for to be granted this fly past.”

Best vantage points for the Super Hornet fly past:

  • Currumbin RSL – On the banks of Currumbin Creek
  • Thrower Bridge – Near Currumbin RSL and Salt Water Restaurant
  • Gold Coast Highway Bridge – Over Currumbin Creek
  • On a boat on Currumbin Creek

The Super Hornet fly past will take place at 11:00am sharp on Thursday 25 April and will form part of the Currumbin RSL mid-morning service.
