February Update for Wings Over Illawarra 2021

February 25, 2021

COVID-19 Update

While Australia has been fortunate enough to weather the Coronavirus storm better than most countries, events across the nation have been hit hard over the past 12 months, with almost all large events becoming casualties, and Wings Over Illawarra was no exception.

With the vaccine roll out beginning nationally next Monday 22nd Feb, State and Federal health authorities are saying this should see the beginning of the end of what has become the norm over the past year. All are predicting a very different end of 2021 with expectations of starting to return to a pre-pandemic way of life, something we are all looking forward to.

With dates for Wings Over Illawarra 2021 set for November 13th and 14th, a month after the expected completion of the national vaccination program, we are extremely confident of a post-pandemic, trouble free event…. perfect timing.


Air Force 2021 Centenary

With 2021 marking 100 years of service by the Royal Australian Air Force, the Wings Over Illawarra 2021 flying display will be themed around Air Force 2021 Centenary celebrations and will be a show not to be missed.

New Additions to Wings Over Illawarra
