I love these two pictures of the RAAF Roulettes aerobatic team taken by Andy Tyler during the 2010 Audi Hamilton Island Race Week.

I was at qualia during the display attending the Moet & Chandon Lunch and the squad did a flyby salute that had the whole dining room leaving their tables to peer outside and watch the show. They were amazing, ducking down into Catseye Bay and swooping over Passage Peak. Then they took the action to the other side of the island, doing loops over the marina and the Hamilton Island Yacht Club.

Tip: My tip for 2012, grab the kids and head on up to One Tree Hill for the perfect view of all the action.
