Anzac Day services across the region will be marked with a fly over after Bundaberg Regional Council engaged a war planes contractor for the occasion.

Plans are well underway for commemoration services to be held on 25 April across the region, including the Civic Service in the Bundaberg CBD, which is jointly coordinated by Council and the RSL sub branch, and a range of special events grants received for assessment.

The fly pasts have become a tradition of the services held throughout the region in recent years.

Community members attending one of the Bundaberg Region’s Anzac Day services will witness the flyover at local services after Warplanes Pty Ltd successfully quoted to undertake Flypast services for ANZAC Day 2024.

It’s not the first time Warplanes will have flown in the region as in recent years the community will have seen the Trojan T-28B soaring through local skies on Anzac Day.

It is expected that the Trojan T-28B will follow a similar flight schedule to recent years.

Council has also made an application to the Australian Defence Force (ADF) for the region to participate in its flyover schedule on April 25 with the ADF to share its schedule closer to the day.

In past years the application has seen a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) F/A-18F Super Hornet spotted at several locations locally on Anzac Day.
