Default Anzac Day flypast

Good morning

I have just seen six aircraft heading north along the Coast from YSSY.
I presume that they are part of an Anzac Day commemoration. Does anyone have details of the aircraft involved?

Cheers
Mark

I saw them from home too. I was able to get a few pics. I'll upload them as soon as possible. That might help in identifying the aircraft.

Low quality pic for anyone who didn't see the formation.

Was just about to upload my photos when I saw this. It is better quality than mine so I guess I don't need to upload mine anymore.

Taking a closer look at your photo, I recognize some of the aircraft from Wings Over Illawarra last year. I'm going back to those photos now to see what I can find out. Will be back with a labeled photo soon.

Excuse the bad photo. The forum wouldn't upload the screenshot so I took a photo of the screen. This is all the info I can find. Hope it helps!

Sean, no P51s in that lot, those you have marked as P51s are CT4s VH-NMX and VH-NMY , behind the Avenger (VH-MML) was the CAC Wirraway VH-WWY. Leading the flight pasts were Rebel 300 VH-TBN, Extra 300 VH-JMO possibly, Extra 300 VH-XHO

With "social distancing" rules, they could be up for a fine.
