Fodor's Review

Due to its isolation and sparse population, the Northern Territory played an important role in the expansion of aviation in Australia, and this impressive museum traces the history of flight Down Under. Planes on exhibition include a massive B-52 bomber on permanent loan from the United States, a recently retired RAAF F-111 fighter jet as well as a Japanese Zero shot down on the first day of bombing raids in 1942.
