A4-140 is the Air Force's oldest remaining Caribou, and is the oldest aircraft in the Australian Defence Force fleet. It was part of the initial three Caribou which were delivered to Australia in April of 1964. In its 45 year career, A4-140 flew in Vietnam from 1968 to 1971. In 1975, it was involved in evacuation missions between East Timor and Darwin. The aircraft supported further flood relief in Australia in 1983 and 1988, and supported the Search and Rescue detachment at RAAF Base Pearce in the 1980s. A4-140 has continued active service with 38 Squadron.

Media Note:

Timings of flypast may be subject to change due to operational requirements. The aircraft will stop in front of the Qantas hangar.

Attending media are required to fax photographic ID to the Australian War Memorial on (02) 6243 4585 by 11 am Thursday. Please include an email address for receipt of fax and location map. Media should arrive by 12.30 pm Friday.

The aircraft will officially be handed over by Air Commodore John Oddie, Commander Air Lift Group to Ms Nola Anderson, Assistant Director, Branch Head National Collection.
Long live the Pig.
