Centenary of Military Aviation Airshow Point Cook
The Centenary of Military Aviation Airshow Point Cook is proudly presented by the Royal Australian Air Force at RAAF Williams, Point Cook, Victoria over the weekend of 1st and 2nd March 2014.
Point Cook is the birthplace of military aviation in Australia and the oldest continually operating military airfield in the world.
Encompassing a spectacular Air Show with air displays and ground displays, the Centenary of Military Aviation is a national event celebrating 100 years of military aviation in Australia.
Gates are open from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Flying displays will be held from 10:00am to 3:30pm.
The flying program is the same for both days of the Air Show.
The event highlights the significant advances in military aircraft during the past 100 years.
On display for the first time at Centenary of Military Aviation Airshow Point Cook will be a newly built replica of a Bristol BoxKite aeroplane. The Bristol BoxKite was the first military aircraft flown in Australia at RAAF Point Cook, on 1 March 1914. No original Bristol BoxKite aircraft survive today. Three reproductions were built for the making of the film ‘Those magnificent men in their flying machines’. One is on display at the Bristol City Museum and Art Gallery, another is on display at the Shuttleworth Collection in Bedfordshire (where it is still flown during flying displays), and the third one is on display at the Museum of Australian Army Flying in Queensland.
