2017 Avalon Airshow Arrivals | USAF F-22 Raptors, KC-135 + More ● Avalon Airport Plane Spotting


The week leading up to Avalon’s International Airshow are filled with lots of interesting military arrivals in preparation for the show. This year, visitors are extremely lucky with not only the ever building collection of military aircraft around the airport, but also the terrific static display of the Antonov AN-124!

The 3 F-22 raptors were an incredible sight, landing only 30 seconds apart from each other. Followed close behind by the elusive KC-135 on a very windy Saturday afternoon! Having the Raptors down here is an absolute pleasure, with only 12 based out of Tyndall, it’s fantastic to see a quarter of the fleet!

I was fortunate enough to catch these arrivals with Aeroplaneman747 and would highly recommend keeping an eye out for his take on the action!

  4. What a BEAUTIFUL video, Matt! Wowww…really enjoyed it. Liked! πŸ™‚
    Amazing to see those beautiful Alaskan Raptors! I like!
    They are probably using Alaskan Raptors because it's more close to Australia, I guess?
    Last year I filmed the Raptor at RIAT, Fairford. So for that show they used Raptors from the East Coast of the U.S.
    If I remember correctly, they were from Langley AFB, Virginia.
    Awesome to see the huge Antonov in your video! Wow. What a beauty.

    Fantastic video mate! Huge like! πŸ™‚

  13. You, my friend, are doing something very right. Starting off with composition – using a combination of the ramp & road side action worked very well together. The colour grading looked very nice – soft and easy on the eyes. The use of contrast on the USAF aircraft gave them a very appealing flat, matte texture. The camera management was well executed for all scenes and the audio was great to listen to. There was, however, breaking in some areas of the audio for the raptors which held the video back from. You may want to change a few settings on your audio system to contradict that.
    Our rating – 9/10

  14. Absolutely excellent work mate! Your footage came out really nicely!!! It sure was a great day and thanks heaps for the shoutout πŸ˜€
