A Royal Australian Air Force supersonic stealth fighter will perform flypasts at both Nowra and Berry on Sunday to commemorate Anzac Day.
The special flybys will also mark the 100th birthday of the RAAF, which was officially celebrated on March 31.
The F-35A Lightning II is a highly advanced multi-role, supersonic, stealth fighter - the Australian Defence Force's first fifth-generation air combat capability.
The fighter is due to fly over the Nowra Showground Memorial Gates in Junction Street, at 10.15am and then the Berry Memorial Park in Alexandra Street at 10.30am.
RAAF aircraft are conducting flypasts over various NSW locations in support of Anzac Day commemorations.
In 2019 both areas were also treated to flypasts by RAAF's Hawk 127 fighters, while in 2018 Nowra also experienced a RAAF F/A-18A Hornet flypast up Junction Street.
The F-35A is at the forefront of air combat technology - its advanced sensors and data fusion allows it to gather more information and share it with other air force aircraft, navy ships and army units quicker than ever before, greatly enhancing the ADF's situational awareness and combat effectiveness.
The F-35A provides its pilots with significantly higher levels of lethality and survivability in combat.
Capable of supersonic flight while retaining stealth, the F-35A has extraordinary acceleration, agility and 9G manoeuvrability.
It has a range of 2,200 kilometres can reach a ceiling of 50,000 feet and a maximum speed of 1,960 km/h (Mach 1.6).
They are 15.7 metres in length, 4.4m in height with a wingspan of 10.7m and a wing area of 42.7 square metres.
Australia has committed to 72 F-35A aircraft for three operational squadrons at RAAF Base Williamtown and RAAF Base Tindal, and a training squadron at RAAF Base Williamtown.
The first F-35A aircraft was accepted into Australian service in 2018, with the first arriving in country in December that year.
The first F-35A squadron, No. 3 Squadron, will be operational in 2021, with all 72 aircraft, purchased by the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group under project AIR 6000 Phase 2A/2B - New Air Combat Capability, expected to be fully operational by 2023.
Flying is subject to variables including air traffic control requirements, weather, and operational availability. As such, flypasts and displays may be subject to cancellation at short notice.
