A big Happy Birthday to the Royal Australian Air Force
which turns 100 today. The RAAF has played a massive role in protecting and shaping our country, and of course our local communities through its presence at Williamtown and historic former bases like that at Rathmines.
More than 350,000 Australians have served with the RAAF over the years, and more than 11,000 RAAF personnel lost their lives in times of conflict. Their service can never be understated.
The big celebrations will be happening in Canberra today but they will be telecast on the ABC this morning.
