The Army is coming to the Open Cockpit Weekend 29-30 June! The Army Aviation Corp will be flying into the museum grounds a Tiger, Black Hawk and a Kiowa helicopter.

Another great attraction for this great weekend.

The F-111 aircraft which was recently delivered to the Queensland Air Museum at Caloundra will be officially handed over on loan to the museum at a ceremony on Friday 28th June at 11.00am. Performing the handover of F-111 A8-129 will be the former Chief of Air Force, Air Marshal Geoff Shepherd, AO (retd) who is a resident of the Sunshine Coast. As a former F-111 pilot, the aircraft is very close to Air Marshal Shepherd’s heart.

There will be many people from the F-111 community at the ceremony including the pilot who delivered A8-129 to Australia in June 1973 and the crew who flew her for the last time in December 2010. A8-129 was amongst the first six RAAF F-111s to arrive in Australia and it also flew on the last day of F-111 operations.
