The Australian Aviation Heritage Centre provides a hands-on experience of history. With a number of remarkable displays and an impressive video presentation, including rare footage of the first air raid in Darwin, the Centre is simultaneously fascinating and educational. It houses 38 major displays featuring 19 aircraft, 21 engines and relics of crashed aircraft. One of the major attractions is a fully refurbished B-52G bomber on permanent loan from the USAF, and it is one of a very few that still exist that has seen active service. Other military memorabilia include Mirage and Sabre jet fighters, a Royal Australian Navy helicopter, and the wreckage of a Japanese Zero fighter shot down in the 1942 Darwin air raids.
