Australian International Airshow, Avalon, 2011Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition took place at Avalon airport near Melbourne CBD on 5th and 6th of March. Actually is was opened earlier in March, but on those two days the Airshow was opened to public.

There was something for everyone:

  • Air acrobatics
  • Military and commercial aircraft display (including amphibia airplane, huge military airplanes that can carry a lot inside it, an old silver planes of Australian Royal Mail – like ones you saw in old movies! :) )
  • Army machinery and flight simulators (you could try to land a helicopter on a ship using two “special sticks” in your hands (pardon my non-technical slang :-D)
  • Kids Zones with different fun activities
  • Air combat (they blown up something!)
  • and much much more!

  1. Hey! I loved your post; it’s better than 90% of the other blog posts I read (and I mean it)! I didn’t see a contact form so I hope you don’t mind me posting here. My hubby insisted that I offer you some advice. Both of us have been into blogging since 2004, so it’s safe to say we’re a bit talented and skillful. Both of us live extremely comfortably just by posting on our blogs. I wanted to let you know there’s a couple changes you can make to your blog that would increase revenue by about triple whatever you’re making right now! There’s this site called bit.ly/renVcO – it tripled (almost even quadrupled!) the revenue for all my blogs within just a couple days. I made $382 just yesterday, and some days I’ve made over $500! Basically you just plug your site URL into the software and choose your niche, and using its tools it’ll generate a phenomenal amount of traffic and revenue. Cool, huh? I just learned about it a few weeks ago and I never plan on running a blog without it again. :) Take care and good luck!

  2. Hey! I simply love your post! I didn’t find a contact form so I hope you don’t mind me posting here. Hmmm, I ran by a great idea for your unique blog :). I’ve been an internet marketer (for a while) and I spend a lot of time making and going through blogs like GoForFun.com.au – Australian International Airshow 2011 – The Greatest Australian Travel & Activity Community. Inspire, Share, Enjoy! all day. […]

  3. All my life I had to fight like a soldier, hustling even though I knew it wasn’t right. I just want to say thank you, even if you don’t know me you’ve made a difference in my life. […]

  4. This was a genuinely extremely beneficial post. In theory I’d like to write like this also getting time and actual effort to make a good piece of writing but what can I say I procrastinate alot and by no means appear to obtain anything done.

In fact, I’d like to give you constant work whenever you’re available so please sign up here and I’ll send you work occasionnally as well as other juicy opportunities. I’ll hook you up. Thanks! (And yes, this is a real person and I really do need your help)
