The shrubs in the background on the first photo, and distant view of Pine Gap in the second. Also the fact that the parking bays are very close to the runway.

Dunno where, but my guess is it'd be hot weather testing for the 757-300 before EIS.

OK, the aircraft is a doddle, & you can probably guess where.
But whose aircraft, and the event?

I'd say the Alice Springs Aero Club with the F27 parked on the widebody jet bay.

At a punt I'll say some bicentenary celebrations looking at the fashions

My guess is the picture was taken at some point during the 1988 Round Australia Air Race (in which I raced, in a much, much slower aircraft than a PC9).

Big Ray took me for a jolly in his 'personal' PC9 when I was at 34SQN a few years later. Fun with a big F.

Don't know where but you need to kick the pilot and wake him up.
Way too low!
