Sir Norman Brearley Commemorative Flight

Past Event

The Shire of Ashburton and Onslow Airport will be taking part in celebrations to commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the first ever commercial flight in the southern hemisphere.

The monumental flight in 1921 between Geraldton and Derby was operated by Western Australian Airways and included a stopover in Onslow.

To commemorate this historic milestone, the Sir Norman Brearley Commemorative Flight (named after West Australian Airways founder Sir Norman Brearley) will be re-creating the original journey between September 15-19, 2021.

On Wednesday September 16, 24 planes will descend into Onslow Airport between 2-3:15pm.

The community are encouraged to visit Onslow Airport to welcome the planes as they arrive.

The Royal Aero Club Fleet will be flying in from 2pm with a small presentation at 4pm.
