Father’s Day is fast approaching – the 6th of September in fact! It falls on the Sunday of our Flying Weekend! Bring your dad along for an exciting day out to watch our spectacular rare, ex-military aircraft come to life as they perform brilliant flying and handling displays for our visitors. It will be a special time for your dad, as he will witness the first public flight of the newly restored RAAF Sabre in 16 years!

Along with this, the Museum is very excited once again to host the visit of two RAAF Hornets! They are amazing tactical fighter aircraft, which feature technical capabilities such as a look-down radar with shoot-down capability, as well as an inertial navigation system and head-up display. Powered by two 7258kg (16,000lb) thrust General Electric F404 Turbo fan engines the Hornet can reach amazing speeds of 1915 km/hr and boast a combat range of 740kms! One F/A-18 Hornet will be on static display in the hangar, with a flight of stairs up to the cockpit so all visitors to can get a closer look. Don’t miss them!
