The Amberley Series celebrates 100 years of the Royal Australian Air Force and 80 years of RAAF Base Amberley.
This display features works created by artist Robert Moore when he was commissioned to undertake an 8-week residency at the RAAF Base Amberley in 2001. The works depict the iconic F1-11 fighter bomber (retired in 1998), the Caribou carrier aircraft (retired in 2009), along with the tag system for tools used in aircraft maintenance.
