RAAF Aircraft arrive for the Centenary of Military Aviation Air Show

Air Force is proud to host the Centenary of Military Aviation Air Show at RAAF Williams – Point Cook, commemorating 100 years of military aviation in Australia. The event features air and ground displays highlighting the significant advances in military aircraft over the past 100 years and is showcasing the professionalism and capabilities of today’s Air Force. The Air Show commemorates a significant moment in Australia’s military aviation history when Lieutenant Eric Harrison, an aviation instructor with the Central Flying School, made Australia’s first military flight taking off from RAAF Williams – Point Cook in a Bristol Boxkite on 1 March 1914. RAAF Williams – Point Cook is the birth place of military aviation in Australia and the oldest continually operating military airfield in the world.
