are the Royal Australian Air Force's aerobatic display team.
Established in 1970, the Roulettes are a six aircraft, seven member team
which during their displays can fly as low as 80 m,
at speeds of up to 460 km/h, and fly as close as three metres apart.
Last week the Roulettes were in central NSW, and arranged a fly-by of the
Parkes telescope. The telescope is a controlled air space, and the fly-by
required special permission to be granted before it went ahead.
