Orions and the South Australian Aviation Museum

This week was a very busy one for the P-3C Orions and the Aircraft Development and Research Unit (ARDU) both based at the local RAAF air base at Edinburgh. The RAAF celebrated the 50th anniversary of the Orion entering service and the 25th anniversary of ARDU.

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 Friendship
 Douglas C-47 Dakota
 Supermarine Spitfire MkVc
 Mirage III
 Macchi MB-326
 Lockheed P-3C Orion
 De Haviland Vampire
 De Haviland Sea Venom

This is an excellent little museum, and is well worth a visit.
