This historic aircraft was the first single-engine aircraft to fly from England to Australia, in 1920. The journey took an incredible 206 days, including two forced landings in the Middle East and a crash at Moulmein, Burma. The letters 'PD' are Parer & McIntosh's sponsor, Peter Dawson whiskey distillers. Built for the RAF as F1278 in 1918, the aircraft was purchased by the AWM for 250 pounds in 1922. Restored 1975-1990.

This Huey was allocated the US serial 63-13587 for administrative purposes, but was delivered new to 9 Sqn RAAF in 1964. Shipped to Vietnam, it served there 1966-68. During that time it saw action at most of the major Australian battles, including being shot down in April 1967. As a result a new tailboom had to be grafted on to the forward fuselage. Allocated to the AWM in 1985 and displayed since 2007 in this very realistic action diorama.

After combat service mainly in the FAC role, returned to Australia in early 1943 and spent the remainder of the war mostly with 5 SFTS, Uranquinty. Post-war, stored 1945-50 Tocumwal, then allocated 1 AFTS Point Cook 1951-57. Allocated to AWM 1959.

This is a very rare, genuine Great War survivor. It was built in 1917 and served with Jasta 29. It was shot down during a dogfight with an RE.8 of 3 Squadron, AFC. The pilot, Lt Clauss was wounded and force-landed just inside the Australian lines between Armentieres and Ploegsteert Wood. Recovered under shellfire by 3 Sqn and eventually shipped to Austalia for the Australian War Memorial collection. Restored as close as possible to original condition during 2007-8.
