100 years at Point Cook

The first weekend in March 2014 was the 100th anniversary of military aviation in Australia, held at the RAAF base at Point Cook.

I am fortunate enough to live just down the road from the base, now mostly a museum, though the RAAF still use it when required.

Over the two days I had a great seat, on my front balcony. It was great to see some of the old timers still flying, and I saw some planes I hadn’t seen since growing up in Geelong, a few decades ago now.

The more things change…
