Nestled between the sea and the Illawarra Range, we converged on Shellharbour Airport early on Saturday morning for the Wings Over Illawarra Airshow. With the eroded facade of the Escarpment drifting in and out of view, wet weather set in periodically. The flight program was amended, and the second-last public flying demonstration of the F/A-18 Hornet (designated no. A21-44) took well-deserved precedence. With afterburners flared, vapour clouds - a dramatic combination of temperature, speed and air pressure - caused clouds to materialize around the aircraft.

It was a great day. Already looking forward to the next.
