welcomed back to his home town
of Inverell in NSW recently when
he flew into town in a Hawk jet.
During a routine training sortie
with 76SQN, PLTOFF Newby took
the opportunity to return home to
the place where he learnt to fly.
With mum and dad on hand,
PLTOFF Newby showed local
school children over the Hawk
"It was great to be able to
come home and show everyone
that Inverell kids can achieve big
things," he said.
"It's not that long ago that I
was here in Inverell dreaming of
becoming a fighter pilot and now
I'm showing off a jet to my home
PLTOFF Newby learnt to fly at
the Inverell aerodrome with his dad
John and landed the Hawk there
for the day.
"It was pretty cool taking the
jet to the aerodrome where I first
learnt to fly," he said.
