DID you know that the Boston bomber on display at the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage was painstakingly assembled at RAAF Amberley from the wrecks of seven downed WW2 bombers retrieved from the swamps and wilderness of Papua New Guinea? And that the aircraft is also known as a Douglas Havoc?

Visitors to the RAAF Amberley Aviation Heritage Centre Open Day this Sunday can learn about the history of the Boston and other fascinating facts on a tour guided by enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers.

A special feature this Sunday is entertainment from the Ipswich RSL Youth and Community band, and visitors can enjoy a sausage sizzle and delicious barista coffee.
