No longer accessible to the public, this mural of Australian military aircraft was commissioned by Australian War Memorial in 1968 and completed in 1972. The galleries were redeveloped in 1999/2000, when the mural was concealed by the current displays in Aircraft Hall. Much the same as the dioramas, popular memory of the mural persists.
