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.

Assignment and Content Editor, writer and photographer A New Englander all of my life, I've lived in New Hampshire since 1981. My passion for all things aviation began at a very early age, and I coupled this with my interest of photography during college in the late 1970s. I spent 35 years in the air traffic control industry, and concurrently, enjoyed my aviation photography and writing adventures, which continue today. I've been quite fortunate to have been mentored by some generous and gifted individuals. I enjoy contributing to this great site and working with some very knowledgeable and equally passionate aviation followers.
