DENPASAR, Bali (BPN) – Bali is planned to host the British Royal Air Force Aerobatic in November 2021. The Governor of Bali, Wayan Koster, expressed his support for the event that will be combined with the British National Day by the British Embassy and the 100th Anniversary of the Australian Air Force.
“Later on, the technical arrangement will be with the airport and the Air Force, so that it can run smoothly,” said Governor Koster when receiving a visit from the British Defense Attaché Indonesia and Timor Leste, Michael Longstaff on Monday.
Meanwhile, Michael Longstaff said that the Aerobatic will involve 12 fighters and 2 airbus-type transporter planes. Before ‘stopping’ in Bali, the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team will also visit Brunei Darussalam, Jakarta, and Yogjakarta.
“We also plan to display fighter planes and will fly for 1 hour from the airport to Kuta Beach,” he explained. “Related to the 100th Anniversary of the Australian Air Force event, this is also a form of our support to restore tourism in Bali, where Australia is one of the major contributors of tourists to Bali,” he added.
In addition, Longstaff also mentioned that the British Day series besides being a reception event by presenting 1500 Britons, will also be filled with other activities such as visits to schools, orphanages, and other social actions. “And also other activities involving Britons in Bali,” he said.
