    Kids and adults will love this place. You need to check if the aircraft flight display is on before as it does not always take place.

    Been here half a dozen time, it's a great place for an aviation buff. Seen a few flying displays by our own RAAF Roulettes, just breath taking....hats off the guys flying them. The display aircraft at the museum are nice to see too. Plan out such that you can grab a view of the flyby's which happen thrice a week.
