Heartstopping moment an RAAF C-17 cargo jet weaves through skyscrapers in Brisbane – sparking some VERY colourful reactions from startled onlookers


  • RAAF cargo jet filmed weaving through Brisbane CBD’s skyline on Thursday 
  • Rehearsing for the Sunsuper Riverfire event as part of 2021 Brisbane Festival
  • Jet seen following the curves of the Brisbane River through the CBD at 300ft
  • Viewers have expressed their thoughts on the ‘terrifying’ sight in ‘colorful’ ways

The Boeing C-17A Globemaster III strategic airlift aircraft was filmed on Thursday during a practice run for the annual Sunsuper Riverfire event as the jet flew through Brisbane at low altitude. Brisbane residents were warned about the rehearsal flights in advance but others were still startled by the sight, with one US viewer on Twitter saying it gave him flashbacks to the 9/11 terror attacks.
