Narromine aerodrome was the home of the RAAF’s No 5 Elementary Flying Training School in World War II, with more than 80 Tiger Moth aircraft stationed there. The school graduated 2850 pilots who went on to further their training before being deployed.
Narromine was also used by QANTAS for pilot training in the 1950s and 60s, as well as being their alternate landing site to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith airport for international flights, including the Lockheed Super Constellation.
The Narromine Aviation Museum collection includes an RAAF CAC Sabre (A94-915), a 1630 horsepower Merlin Mk 25 engine from a Mosquito B.IV bomber, a homebuilt 1938 Corben Super Ace and a flying replica of the Wright Brothers Flyer that was built locally.
Open 10.00 am – 4.00 pm, Wednesday to Monday. Admission fees apply.
