Default RV-7 formation lands at Sydney

Just copied on airband a formation of four RV-7's leaving Weddburn and landing at YSSY. Anyone see this? Know what it was about?

I've just checked on 16right adsb logs, and it says that all the RV-7s detected in Sydney airspace today are: VH-ZYU, VH-XPW, VH-EWS, VH-OHD and VH-VNZ.

I can confirm that VH-EWS is at YSSY based off Flightradar24 records.

Based of Flightaware, VH-EWS is scheduled to depart YSSY at 1PM AEST to YWBN.

Certainly didn't expect to see that, they passed over my place on approach.

Very happy to be involved in this one.

Eddie and his team were super chuffed to arrive at YSSY.
Nigel and I were greeted with big smiles
