A CAC Wirraway taxies past the crowded Nowra Control Tower, after a flight demo in the rain in October 1996. The occasion was the RAN 75th Anniversary Air Day, which featured many visiting aircraft. The weather was ideal for a Royal Navy Sea Harrier later in the day. This Wirraway (delivered to the RAAF in July 1944) was being operated by Geoff Milne at the time. The RAN also operated 17 Wirraways from 1948. Sadly, Geoff Milne and 3 pax died in a Cessna 337 crash at Cape Liptrap Victoria on 17Nov2007.
