The Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defense Exposition is quite the spectacle. Held every other year at Avalon Airport in Victoria, Australia, the event features mainly military aircraft. Pilots flip, dip, tumble, and turn during the show, much to the awe of audiences. The exposition gives viewers an opportunity to learn about other products, technologies, and services used by the aviation industry.
Last held in 2017, that year marked the largest audience ever for the airshow – 210,000 people in attendance. The event only seems to get larger each time, and 2019 was no exception. On Facebook, the event tallied 5.4K people who planned on going to see the marvel.
2019 was quite the year for the Avalon Airshow. While the event was filled with its usual displays of amazement, there was perhaps no moment more stunning than the nighttime fireworks show.
We’ve all seen fireworks – they’re already mesmerizingly grandiose in their presentation. So how does one take fireworks to the next level? Shoot them from a plane, of course!
What follows in the video below is quite the thrilling airshow. Warplanes dance together in the sky, shooting fireworks and lasers from their wings. You’ve never seen anything like this before.
Unfortunately, the screen of a computer doesn’t do this show justice. Trip to Australia anyone? What makes this entire event even more incredible is that it’s choreographed to “Sandstorm 2006” by Dream Chaser. It truly doesn’t get cooler than that.
