    Default Bull Creek Aviation Museum

    I would rather have questions that can't be answered than answers that can't be questioned

    Looks a cool place, but probably not a part of Aus I'll be visiting anytime soon.

    I was surprised to see that Tornado - apparently the only one outside of the UK.

    The high school I went to was on the edge of town and frequently had very low flypasts of Tornado GR1s from RAF Cottesmore, on the other side of the county. Then I briefly had a job in a village over that side of the county, and again, lots of Tornado action.
