To all our plane spotting friends, we encourage all enthusiasts interested in watching on from Canberra Airport, to please do so from the Majura Park Shopping Centre car park closest to the airfield. A coffee cart will be set up for your convenience. Please ensure you maintain physical distancing at all times.

Please note: the historic aircraft featured in the celebrations will not be stationed at Canberra Airport prior to the celebrations. The Air Force Roulettes and Army Helicopters may be stationed there.
