RAAF fly-over requested for Anzac Day

RAAF fly-over
Council has asked the Defence Department for a RAAF fly-over in the Bundaberg Region on Anzac Day 2019.

Bundaberg Regional Council has written to the Defence Department seeking an official RAAF fly-over on Anzac Day, April 25.

Mayor Jack Dempsey said this would be a “fitting tribute” to the many men and women who have served Australia.

The RAAF flies over Anzac ceremonies in many other parts of Queensland.

“Anzac Day is a significant occasion which honours the sacrifice others have made so we all enjoy a wonderful lifestyle today,” Mayor Dempsey said.

“The Bundaberg Region has a proud history of military service and I would like to see this recognised by Defence.”

It's understood authorities will make a decision on Council's application by the end of March.

Bundaberg's request was unsuccessful last year.
