If fans thought the Supercars were noisy then their ears were really ringing after an F/A-18 hornet flew over Mount Panorama before the start of the 2017 Bathurst 1000 on Sunday morning.

The hornet performed an incredible, low-level acrobatic display before the Great Race began, as officials and drivers packed the starting grid.

Before the hornet, the Royal Australian Air Force’s aerobatic display team – the Roulettes – performed their astonishing acrobatic display.

The Roulettes flew together, six in total, in a triangular formation, circuiting around the starting grid.

Thankfully for fans, the Roulettes were not as noisy as the hornet.
