RED THUNDER TACTICAL FORMATION CLINIC (TFC)
Annually during May of each year!
The annual Red Thunder Tactical Formation Clinic (TFC) returns during May of each year. The event sees 30 -40 warbird aircraft gather at the Watts Bridge Memorial Airfield to participate in a host of flying and social activities. Flying training activities are intense, culminating in the last day’s ‘Exercise Red Thunder’ event. The social calendar is full of great options including the ever popular Red Squadron Dining-In night held on the final Saturday Night.
Further details, including preferred accommodation and registration for the event, is generally published in early April of each year.
Flying activities will bring together the experience of former and current Military pilots offering Warbird owners a snapshot of combat type operations. All flight activities are well supervised, facilitating a safe environment for continuation training of both ab-initio and proficient pilots in the areas of ;
- Flour Bombing,
