Details

The Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Museum will conduct two formation flypasts with historic-aircraft over the Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance on Sunday 11 February, from 11:40am.

The flypasts are in support of a ceremony being conducted by the National Servicemen’s Association (Victoria), and will consist of RAAF Winjeels, CT-4s and Harvard trainer aircraft. The first flypast will travel north to south at approximately 11.40am; with the second flypast travelling east to west shortly after. The aircraft will be flying at a height of approximately 270 metres.

The RAAF Museum at Point Cook has the largest collection of Australian military aviation memorabilia in the world, and the largest collection of historic military aircraft in the Southern Hemisphere. Noise management and environment impact are vital considerations in the planning and conduct of military flying. Air Force appreciates the support it receives from the wider Melbourne community during this flying activity.
