    What to Expect
    Visit: Darwin Aviation Museum, 557 Stuart Highway, Darwin, Northern Territory 0821 Australia

    General admission provides access to all displays and artifacts. An impressive presentation of Aviation videos of the B-52, and the bombing of Darwin are continuously displayed. You can see some rare amateur footage of the first air-raid in Darwin, and also original footage from Japanese archives.

    There are 19 aircraft on display, as well as 38 major displays, relics of crashed aircraft, and 21 engines. The exhibitions are being continually updated by a small group of enthusiastic volunteers of the Aviation Heritage Society of the Northern Territory, a non-profit association.

    Aircraft include a B-25 Mitchell Bomber – one of the few surviving in the world with a proven track record. There are Mirage and Sabre jet fighters, and a Royal Australian Navy Wessex helicopter that assisted in the clean-up of Darwin after Cyclone Tracy struck on Christmas Day 1974. The latest acquisition is an F-111C which arrived by road from Amberley on 16 June 2013.
