On Wednesday 30 March, the Royal Australian Air Force will dedicate a new Memorial at the Point Cook RAAF Base, in a ceremony that will feature flypasts by current and historic military aircraft.
The flypasts at 11.00am will be a combination of historic military aircraft and current aircraft, including a C-17A Globemaster and the Roulettes aerobatic team.
Air Force will dedicate the new Memorial to everyone who has worn the RAAF uniform in its first 100 years. The Memorial at Air Force’s original base will be a permanent legacy of the Centenary program.
More than 350,000 Australians have served in Air Force since 1921 and 11,191 have died serving the nation. 3,143 Air Force members have no known grave. The Memorial honours their dedication, service and sacrifice.
To comply with Covid-19 risk mitigation, Air Force cannot facilitate public entry to the RAAF base. The display can be viewed from the aircraft viewing area and the beach at the Point Cook Coastal Park or Campbells Cove.
Flypast aircraft may change due to operational requirements.
