Aviation History

The RAAFAWA Aviation Museum preserves and displays many elements of the history of aviation in Western Australia, not only the aircraft but also the people and events that led us to where we are today. This section of the museum web site is where we pay tribute to all who contributed, and still contribute: not just the pilots and enterpreneurs, but also from the guy who did the job when "chocks away!" was called, to the engineers who continue to make this state a focus for the aerospace industry.

History, of course, always has many layers, and as time goes by it is hoped to uncover more. Contributions by visitors are welcomed, particularly if they can be verified from multiple sources, and even better, supported by scanned photographs that can be included here.
