Roaring, soaring Super Hornets will streak over Brisbane before the sky is set alight for Riverfire, wowing an expected half-a-million-strong crowd on Saturday.
The jets have not flown for Riverfire, the popular annual river fireworks event that heralds the Brisbane Festival, since 2019, before COVID-19 prevented mass gatherings.
Riverfire will be the opening event for the Brisbane Festival, which runs until September 25.
On Saturday, the F/A-18F Super Hornet from RAAF Base Amberley in the city’s south, and four army helicopters – the MRH-90 Taipan Battlefield Mobility and EC655 Eurocopter Tiger Armed Reconnaissance from the School of Army Aviation in Oakey – are scheduled to fly through the city.
But the Bureau of Meteorology has forecast the city could receive up to 30 millimetres of rain.
As of midday on Friday, there was a 95 per cent chance of rain.

He said an additional 160 services would be available, including 32 more train services and 130 buses.
“I’d urge people, if you can, take public transport because if everybody drives, it’s going to be gridlocked,” he said.
“Be prepared, bring your wet weather gear in case there is any rain.”
Chief Superintendent Stephen Dabinett said about half-a-million people were expected to line the banks of the Brisbane River for the celebration.
“We are well versed in planning and preparing for major events, and Riverfire is no exception,” Dabinett said.
“Remembering that major road and bridge closures will come into effect from Saturday afternoon, together with some parking restrictions.”
Extra police were expected to patrol through the city, including at South Bank, Kangaroo Point and other vantage points.
On Thursday, the RAAF conducted practice runs through the city with the helicopters, followed by the jet fly-through on Friday.

Brisbane Festival, which runs until September 25, will include performers, free concerts, food from across the world, and large-scale installations.
“Brisbane Festival also provides important employment for artists and arts workers, with more than 1100 Queensland artists featured in this year’s festival, including more than 160 First Nations artists,” Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said.
“This year the festival boasts more than 580 performances including 230 free presentations with 22 new works.”
