To commemorate these anniversaries, a formation of three Orions flew low over several local landmarks. I watched them as they flew low over Adelaide.
The South Australian Aviation Museum celebrated with an open day to mark the official handing over of a retired RAAF Orion for display there. The museum holds in interesting collection of aircraft including a couple of ex-ARDU aircraft in their distinctive Orange and White colour scheme.
Here are some of the aircraft currently on display:
General Dynamics F-111 Aardvark
Fokker F-27 FriendshipDouglas C-47 Dakota
Supermarine Spitfire MkVc
Lockheed P-3C Orion
De Haviland Vampire
De Haviland Sea Venom
This is an excellent little museum, and is well worth a visit.
