Default RAAF 100 Flyover

Royal Australian Air Force commemorates 100 years of service as more than 60 vintage and modern aircraft take to the sky over Canberra

Past and present members of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) have been honoured with a flypast of more than 60 aircraft over Canberra.

Today marks 100 years since the Australian Air Corps became the Australian Air Force, with King George V approving the use of the word "Royal" in the name in June 1921.

Vintage and modern aircraft featured in the flypast this morning included a Super Hornet, Black Hawk helicopter, C-130 Hercules, MH-60R Seahawk, Boomerang, Spitfire and a Canberra bomber.
