In the first hall there are mainly aircraft from the time of the Cold War and the present day. The exhibition also includes missile systems, such as Bloodhound anti-aircraft missiles, which were still in use in Switzerland until the end of the 1990s. The second hall deals with warplanes from the time of the two world wars. The highlight is two British Spitfires and a German Messerschmitt BF109. Between the two halls there are also a few outdoor exhibitions, including a Russian MIG. On the outdoor terrace you have a good view of the tarmac of the nearby airport and can listen to the radio traffic by means of a loudspeaker system. We were able to observe two line machines at the start. Staff: Mostly older, volunteers. They are very friendly and are happy to answer the questions of visitors. Tips for visitors: The entrance fee is AUD 16 for adults, which is still in good shape in terms of Australia's price level, albeit at the upper limit. The café belonging to the museum was closed at the time of our visit in October 2018, but was to be reopened by now. Expect a time requirement of 60 - 90 minutes for the exhibition. Tips for the operator: The planes were well presented, sometimes you could see into the cockpit. The written information was rather sparse and very technical. I would have liked to have had a little more practical information and examples of the use of aircraft. Conclusion: A good opportunity to spend an hour on a rainy day. Not too big and not too small, therefore also suitable with children.
Wonderful Museum. Beautifully restored aircraft used by the RAAF and some others included. The guides and volunteers there are very knowledgeable and courteous. Cannot recommend highly enough
Awesome displays of fighter jets. With 2 cockpits you can sit in for a photo opportunity. Lots of displays of engine and weapons. A huge collection of hand made model planes. Nice observation deck to see the Airforce runway with the occasional spotting of fighter jets in action. Awesome
