    Always my favourite place to visit in Canberra Rene!!
    The aircraft hall is a bugger to photograph in but the interactive stuff and visuals are very well done..... its all about the atmosphere!!
    Cheers, Dan

    I wish they went ahead with the aircraft hall, because the aircraft rooms are a bugger to take photos in.

    The 109 is the only one left in its original war time colours...it has a fascinating history that is laid out well, it had a wing replacement and one of the prop blades is marked to another aircraft
    The 262 was stripped back of post war paint to reveal what you see today, it has the RAF markings as well it carried after it was captured and evaluated.
    The desert cam uniform is from Iraq, it is from 2006, it's from the mob that we took over from on the second rotation of the Al Muthana task group. It was taken from a soldier on the last day of the tour after his last patrol, he basically was told to take it off and hand it to the Army history unit with everything he had on him and his pockets, uncleaned, just as he was wearing it....the night before he was tipped off that it was going o happen, so his mates in his section swapped bits of kit so they would all have a piece in the war memorial...this goes back o what happened on the last day of WW1, where a digger was told to remove his uniform as he came in from the trenches....it's still in the memorial, mud and all

    The 109 and the zero were once part of a private collection - of Sid Marshall at Bankstown airport in Sydney's west. I remember going there in the sixties and seeing the 109 hanging from the roof!!!
