Celebrating with us from a distance

Australian marines parading on the deck of vessel in Harbour. Photo taken from Parade Ground at Independence Park

From a distance the Australian and New Zealand jets looked awesome as they roared over Independence Park to mark the 40th Independence Anniversary of the country to the roar also, of a crowd that perhaps had never seen a war jet on the ground.

Not only that but when our security men and women in uniform paraded in the letter ‘Y’ at Independence Park, a similar formation was displayed on deck of the Australian military vessel anchored in Vila Harbour.
