Australia & Singapore 2018
We had already considered the large bi-annual exercise Pitch Black in northern Australia a couple of times but never executed the tour as we deemed it a bit too risky to venture to the other side of the world without any support of the Royal Australian Air Force. Also, this time the RAAF had no interest in supporting our request for access to Darwin, but we decided to go anyway as the line-up for the exercise was very interesting and we had a small group of enthusiasts willing to take the risk. We planned almost a week in Darwin, followed by a week in eastern Australia and conclude with a couple of days in Singapore for the 50th Anniversary of its Air Force. The latter was a new destination for 4Aviation, the 56th country in our 10 year of existence.
