PODCAST: Discussing the past and future of RAAF after its centenary

This week marked the 100-year anniversary of the RAAF, which culminated in one of the most ambitious flypasts attempted in years.

This week marked the 100-year anniversary of the RAAF, which culminated in one of the most ambitious flypasts attempted in years.

  

And a special occasion demands a special podcast. This week, host Phil Tarrant brings together Australian Aviation’s Adam Thorn and Defence Connect’s Liam Garman to discuss the past, present and future of our Air Force.

The team analyses how well equipped the RAAF is to deal with an uncertain period in the Indo-Pacific region, the government’s huge investment in the larger ADF and whether we’re likely to have a Royal Australian Space and Cyber Force in years to come.

Finally, the three discuss a very significant tribute from the Queen, who made a rare COVID appearance to celebrate the centenary.

Enjoy the podcast,
