Fighter World is dedicated to preserving the proud history of fighter aircraft operations in the Royal Australian Air Force.
Located just 20 mins drive north of Newcastle, adjacent to the entrance to RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle Airport, Fighter World provides a hands-on experience.
Exhibited in two hangars, visitors can walk, touch and look into the cockpits of famous aircraft as the Mirage III, the Avon Sabre, the Gloster Meteor, the first Vampire jet built in Australia and new in 2013 the mighty F-111. Within the main hanger, the Norm Forrester Collection of hand-built model aircraft offers unique insight into a range of replicas.
Fighter World offers the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of a Mirage interceptor and Macchi jet trainer and experience first-hand what it’s like to be one of Australia’s Top Gun pilots in today’s hi-tech world.
From the Observation Deck witness aircraft of the RAAF’s premier Fighter Squadrons take-off and land while listening to the live audio feed from the Williamtown Control Tower.
