Experience Darwin's Aviation History

Darwin Aviation Museum – from SPITFIRE to B52 BOMBER

Did you know… ?

THAT DARWIN WAS BOMBED MORE THAN PEARL HARBOUR DURING THE AIR RAID.
There were more aircraft used and more tonnage of bombs dropped.

On 19 February 1942, 188 Japanese planes bombed Darwin in two air raids. One Japanese plane crash-landed on Melville Island to Darwin’s north, and its pilot was captured by a local Aboriginal man. You can see the plane at the museum.
