In the early 1970s, a small energetic team of Navy volunteers started collecting relics from around HMAS Albatross, including five obsolete RAN aircraft, which became the foundations of the Fleet Air Arm Museum, established in 1974. The Museum collection increased exponentially through the 1980s and the growing band of volunteers raised over $8m to build the Museum facility at the gates of HMAS Albatross, the home of the Fleet Air Arm. Today, the RAN Fleet Air Arm Museum is one of the largest regional aviation museums in NSW, containing over 30 aircraft and numerous aviation artefacts tell the story of Australian Naval Aviation and the development of the Royal Australian Navy’s Fleet Air Arm.
