Popped in here about a month ago as its been ages since my last visit. They have a great little collection going on here and recommend a visit if ever in Adelaide.

First up is C-47B A65-114.

These are very good! I like seeing the Anson under restoration and I'm glad to see some of the F/A-18s being put to good use in museums. It's interesting to see such a young aircraft standing with WW2-era aircraft.

That early 18 is almost as close in age to the mk. V Spitfire as it is to the current F-35s.
Great thread!

Cheers
