The Memorial Open Day is a free and exciting family event that highlights Australian military history and the links with our servicemen and women. The day has an action-packed program to help you rediscover your nation’s heritage in Australia ’s most-visited cultural attraction.

The Opening Spectacular at 11 am will include,

There will be an air show starting at 1 pm featuring historical aircraft including an FA-18, C130 Hercules, C47, Catalina, Mustang and more. You will also see a special display of unique military technology vehicles and other items from the Memorial’s collection.

I gather no one else is going to this?

I will probably be over there from 10:30am, if anyone is interested in meeting?

Anyone? :)

Tristan, I'll be there.

I wouldn't be surprised to bump into Christian - he's normally about at these things.

I dunno exactly what time I'll arrive, so it might be best to do an ad-hoc thing - you have a PM with my mobile #.

Failing that, look for the D2H with the 80-400 pointed skyward :D
