RAAF Amberley in Support of Talisman Saber 2017


2017-07-22 Second Line of Defense has visited RAAF Amberley several times and has published several interviews of RAAF personnel operating from the base.

This includes the KC-30A and C-17 as well Super Hornet and now the Growler leadership.

During the last visit, we interviewed Group Captain Braz about the coming of the Growler to the Australian Defence Force.

And in an article published by Aviation Photography Digest, Jaryd Stock provided a look at the role of RAAF Amberley in the current Talisman Saber 2017 exercise.

He quoted Group Captain Braz about that role.

“Amberley plays a huge role in Talisman Saber 2017…(there are) over one thousand personnel on the base who are focused on Talisman Saber.

“And of course we bring the assets that are normally based here with visiting U.S. Navy Super Hornets and Growlers.”

“And what that brings is interoperability and that interoperability with the United States is fundamental to the Australian way of doing business and we value that very highly.”

The article includes a video by Joel Thomas which can be viewed within the article.

And below is a recent US Navy look at their participation in Talisman Saber 2017.
