Skippy Squadron - New Exhibition

Sat 25 May 10AM Ends: Sat 30 Nov 5PM

Qantas in Vietnam

It is a well documented fact that Australia was involved in the Vietnam War, but how did our boys get there? This is the story involving The Skippy Squadron and the role of Qantas in the Vietnam War. 300 flights in. 300 flights out.

Qantas was instrumental in helping transport the Australian troops to and from Vietnam between 1965 and 1972. The Qantas volunteers who choose to fly in and out of a warzone in Boeing 707s were affectionately known as the Skippy Squadron.These were highly emotional journeys for both the crew and the troops. Imagine being the captain of the aircraft and flying your son out to serve in Vietnam.

This Exhibition is to commemorate their actions and tell their stories with a collection of images taken by the servicemen and Qantas crew with memorabilia collected by those involved in these flights.

When: Saturday 25 May 2019 and runs until the end of November 2019.

Where: National Vietnam Veterans Muesum
