The first iconic story is the Royal Flying Doctor Service, affectionately known throughout Australia as the RFDS.
Founded by the Reverend John Flynn, it began its aero medical operations in the Northern Territory in 1939.
The second iconic story featured is the Bombing of Darwin on 19th February 1942. The bombing of the harbour brought destruction to the city of Darwin, and many of the experiences and stories of what happened that day through the most modern and exciting technology.
See two iconic Territory stories in one iconic location at Stokes Hill Wharf, Darwin. This new and exciting world-class facility will feature never seen before cutting edge technology – holograms, virtual reality and a projection window of the Japanese air attack on the harbour. Additionally, a decommissioned RFDS Pilatus PC 12 aircraft, completely aero medically equipped, will be accessible to the public as well as a life-sized replica Japanese Zero aircraft suspended from the ceiling. Learn about the activities of the RFDS’s pilots, engineers, doctors, and nurses, and the experiences of the patients that are carried and cared for each day.
