There have been aircraft in the Memorial’s collection from the very beginning. Today, the Hall contains a number of classic aircraft on permanent display, including a Mosquito, Kittyhawk, Mustang, Zero, Wirraway, Sea Fury, MiG-15, Avro Anson, and a Japanese Oscar.

Aircraft Hall contains the exhibition Air power in the Pacific, 1941–53. You can learn about both the practical side of air power – how aircraft work and are put together – and the stories of how it affected everyday life during the Second World War and the Korean War.
