On 10 December 2017, AP-3C Orion A09-756 arrived at SAAM in pieces on 6 semi trailers from Edinburgh Airbase, courtesy of RAAF Heritage and Defence Disposals. In barely eleven months SAAM has assembled and refurbished the aircraft for display in its new display hangar.
On 2 December 2018, Air Commodore John Meier of RAAF Heritage will officially hand the aircraft over to SAAM in a ceremony that will include addresses by the Air Commodore and our Patron, Jim Whalley; Group Captain John Grime of 92 Wing; Martin Ball, VP Airbus Australia Pacific; and our President, David Byrne.
Visitors are welcome to share the event with us and entry is free until noon. Access to the aircraft interior will be available to visitors for the first time.
