The Deltas Mirage Aerobatic Team does a spectacular Five-Ship 'Bomb-Burst', while trailing white smoke, to end their practice Display at Williamtown in 1971. The Team, led by CO 77Squadron (Wg Cdr Bill Simmonds) flying CO's ship A3-19, was practising for the imminent RAAF 50th Anniversary Air Displays. The Team had a Naming competition. I offered 'MATRAs' (Mirage Aerobatic Team RAAF Anniversary), which was too similar to a French missile makers name. The 'Deltas' won. (Mirage IIIs are flying Deltas).
