The exercise Pitch Black is held every two years in Australia. In 2018 the exercise is scheduled for 27 July to 17 August. The exercise, dubbed “the largest air force training exercise in the Southern Hemisphere”, will take place from RAAF Tindal and RAAF Darwin in mid-2018 again. For the 2016 edition over 100 participating aircraft showed up from Australia, USA, Thailand (F-16s), Singapore (F-15s and F-16s) and Indonesia (F-16s). In 2018 the Indian Air Force is scheduled to participate.
We intend to organise a tour to this exercise in 2018 and combine the visit to Australia with visits to other air bases.
