I enjoy writing about Adelaide and its many attractions. If you think Adelaide is boring,
the problem is not with Adelaide.

All of the current displays are on view in one hangar, while a second hangar is used for the painstaking reconstruction work or wrecked aircraft by volunteers.
What I particularly like about the CJFM is that the exhibits are well described and very accessible, and it's OK to sit in cockpits of some of the planes. Great for photo opportunities, and the kids love it!
While the word "jet" is part of the museum name, it no longer focuses solely on fighter jet aircraft, and has a good collection of military propeller aircraft too. The aircraft on display change occasionally as new planes are acquired, or when supporters loan aircraft for display.
The museum also holds an occasional Air Display, where you can watch a fantastic display of aircraft flying overhead, while others are on open display on the tarmac. The next Antique & Classic Aircraft Air Display will be held on March 17 2013.
If you haven't been before, then take a look at this unique exhibition of propeller and jet air craft. It's a place the whole family can enjoy, and good to show interstate visitors what to see in Adelaide..
