The Fleet Air Arm Museum is a must see in the town of Nowra for naval aviation enthusiasts. Visitors to the Museum have the opportunity to explore and experience the story of naval aviation from its beginnings to the present day.
The “Wings over Water” exhibition tells the story of naval aviation in Australia, with aircraft from the 20th Century, ranging from a World War One Sopwith Pup to an A4 Skyhawk jet fighter. It also includes examples of allied and foreign aircraft, like the MiG-17 fighter. Showcases and audio visual displays add to the stories of these aircraft and those who flew and fixed them.
You will also see the US 135th Assault Helicopter that incorporated the RAN Helicopter Flight-Vietnam and a special exhibit on Admiral Sir Victor Smith. The Museum’s flight simulator provides a ‘virtual experience’, for all ages, on what it is like in the pilot’s seat.
