WWII Commemorations
On Saturday 15th August, to commemorate VP Day and 75 years since the official end of the Second World War, Andrew Bishop, Steve Death and Alex Allum flew the Wirraway & Hudson to Canberra to perform a flypast over Anzac Parade to the Australian War Memorial.

We were very honoured to be part of this commemoration.
