Thus one goes to the Stars

Sic itur ad astra — such is the way to immortality

Last Flights recognises those RAAF members who have 'departed the fix outbound' on their last flight, after many years of service in the RAAF and to the nation. Many had years of service, with careers and achievements verging on 'folklore', much of which should not to be forgotten. However, most pass into obscurity on retirement—remembered and cherished by their families, but largely forgotten by most. Some had chosen to 're-live' their service years, most retired gracefully and in their twilight years remembered with much pride, their RAAF days.

We remember those who served their country in war and peace.
