Description

Experience the adventure and romance of our military pioneer aviators and see the progression from "Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines" to present day. Marvel at their courage and view the historic aircraft and memorabilia on display since World War I.

Visitors to the museum will see many beautifully presented aircraft with strong connections to Army aviation that have been restored to original condition. Also, there are images, video and valuable memorabilia from World War l, to current operations overseas where the Australian Army is using aviation resources.

The Museum houses replicas of the three original aircraft first flown by Military pilots in 1910-1912 being the Boxkite, Deperdussin and Bleriot.

During World War II, Number 6 Aircraft Depot was established at Oakey as a key RAAF station in the South West Pacific area. Aircraft such as Beaufort, Boomerang, Kittyhawk, Lancaster, Mustang, Norseman, Spitfire and Wirraway were serviced, repaired and test flown here until February 1946.
