The Deltas Mirage Aerobatic Team does a flypast in Vic Formation, while trailing smoke, during a practice Display at Williamtown in 1971. The Team Leader, CO 77Squadron (Wg Cdr Bill Simmonds) is shown re-joining the formation, flying the CO's aircraft A3-19. The Team 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 missle makers name. The 'Deltas' entry won.
