These are my last photos of the air displays from the Clipsal 500 as viewed from our balcony. The RAAF F18 did its thing just before the races started, was bloody noisy and bloody quick. I didn't catch a photo of it at all the first day, which is a pity as it did a stalling climb which left it stationary in midair only several hundred metres from us! In the photo above it is rocketing by, I was panning the camera pretty quick. Below, it pulls away.

Just before the final race, a pair of F18s did a power climb as their 'salute'. Awsome. For a video (in which you can't actually see much because of digital degredation and the speed of the little planes combined), click here (might take a while for dialup).
