Mildura RSL RAAF Musuem
About Mildura RSL RAAF Musuem
The Museum is located close to the Mildura Airport. This site was once responsible for providing operational fighter conversion training to pilots before they were posted to their squadrons during WW11. Approximately 1247 pilots were successfully trained at Mildura’s 2OTU base, sadly 52 Aircrew and 7 Ground Crew were involved in fatal accidents while training or serving in the unit.
RSL Volunteers maintain the memorabilia and open the museum to the public on specific days.
In 2018 the Mildura RSL established a new Air Museum website which provides a historical story of the 2OTU. The website also honours all pilots and ground crew who were tragically killed in training. A profile of each of the men who died is a wonderful initiative which honours their memory.
The Mildura RSL is very proud of the Museum and the new web site will hopefully encourage more visitors to the Museum to get a greater appreciation of the role Mildura played in WWII from 1942 to 1945.
