Fighterworld Aviation Museum is located adjacent to RAAF Williamtown, Australia’s most prominent fighter base. From an observation platform you can even watch the comings and goings of F/A-18 Hornets and BAe Hawks. I watched a C-17 take off when I was there.
Aircraft on display at Fighterworld include: Avro Cadet, Gloster Meteor, De Havilland Vampire Fighter, De Havilland Vampire Trainer, CAC Avon Sabre, Dassault Mirage fighter, Dassault Mirage trainer, GAF Jindivik target drone, General Dynamics F-111, Hawker Hunter, Macchi trainer, CAC Winjeel, MiG-21, Supermarine Spitfire replicas, Messerschmitt Bf 109 replica and Fokker Triplane replica.
Along with these airframes is an extensive collection of aero engines, weapons and equipment from the last 100 years of aviation.
One particularly impressive part of the museum is a row of display cases full of hand-made 1:72 scale model aircraft, each built from scratch. The collection was built by a Mr Norman Forrester and the collection of over 300 aircraft took more than 40 years to complete.
To see a photo gallery of the pics I took while I was there in 2014, click on the picture below. There are also full walkaround galleries of the Gloster Meteor, De Havilland Vampire Fighter, CAC Avon Sabre, Dassault Mirage fighter, Dassault Mirage trainer, GAF Jindivik target drone, General Dynamics F-111, Hawker Hunter, Macchi trainer and MiG-21 in the walkaround section of my site.
