We’ve finally just one sleep away from our 100th anniversary!
Tomorrow, the presentation of a new Queen’s Colour for the Royal Australian Air Force will occur at Government House. This will conclude with the Spectacular Centenary Flypast over Lake Burley Griffin – more than 60 current and historic aircraft will participate!

For those unable to be in Canberra, a two hour live television broadcast will be available to view on the ABC1 from 10am local time, including the Colour Parade and Spectacular Centenary Flypast. This will also be viewable on iView, the Air Force Facebook account and our website.
Note: Due to COVID-19 and capacity constraints, the Colour Parade is not open to the public. Members of the public in Canberra are encouraged to gather in a COVID-safe manner around Lake Burley Griffin to view the flypast.
In case you missed it last night, you may be interested in the ABC special feature ‘To the Stars: 100 years of the RAAF’ which is now available to watch on iView. The program looks at the history of the Air Force through rare archival footage and in-depth interviews with veterans, serving members and new recruits. You can view the program for the next three months on iView.
Whether you are around the country, we hope you can join us for what will be a historic day for the Royal Australian Air Force.
