On 31 March 2021, the Royal Australian Air Force marked 100 years of service to Australia.
From our modest beginnings in 1921, Air Force has grown into a potent, world class Air Force which Australia relies upon in both conflict and peace. The men and women of the Royal Australian Air Force have achieved great success in serving Australia and its national interests over the past 100 years.
We've launched the series 'Our Air Force, Our People' to share the stories of some of our extraordinary men and women and what the Centenary means to them. These stories will demonstrate the diversity of our current force and the excellence and passion that Air Force members demonstrate every day across Australia and around the world.
