Last weekend, I was lucky enough to see the RAAF Roulettes in action during their air display at the Point Cook Air Base, just outside Melbourne.
The RAAF Museum has 3 aerial shows a week, and this week happened to coincide with a scheduled show by the Air Force Flight School, aka the Roulettes. The Pilatus PC-9 has served the RAAF faithfully for many years and hundreds of thousands of flying hours (the presenter indicated that they have reached the half-million flying hours – I’m not sure if this is individually, or collectively, either way, it’s a lot of hours). The PC-9 will continue to serve for another 3 to 4 years, after which they will be retired and replaced with the newest generation Pilatus PC-21, bringing a host of improvements to the Roulettes.
