Looking Back to my 2001 Australia Trip
I took a trip to Australia to see the 2001 Avalon Air Show, which celebrated the Centenary of Federation of that country. There were many aircraft types that I’d never seen before, and there were a number of British designs that delighted me.
Manufacturers like DeHavilland, Miles and Beagle were on display, while warbirds like a Fokker, Fiat and Australia’s Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation (CAC) filled a big void in my aircraft knowledge.
Here’s a scrapbook of some of the types that I saw, you can hover over the photo to see the caption/type and click for an enlarged look at the photo.
