Caribou to be displayed at Amberley

written by WOFA | December 10, 2009

CaribouThe ADF has announced a RAAF Caribou is to go on static display at RAAF Base Amberley following the type’s retirement on November 26 .

The aircraft will be preserved for display at the base, hopefully in better condition than the current Canberra bomber gate guard which has deteriorated badly in recent years.

Other Caribou will be displayed at the RAAF Museum at Point Cook and eventually, at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra, and it is hoped at least one and possibly two will be kept in airworthy condition with flying museums.

Caribou were based at Amberley with 38SQN between 1992 and 2007.
