Skippy Squadron Exhibition – National Vietnam Vetererans’ Museum

Exhibition and Shows

27 Jun 2019 to 30 Nov 2019

Qantas in Vietnam.

It is a well documented fact that Australia was involved in the Vietnam War, but how did our boys get there? Skippy Squadron Exhibition – National Vietnam Veterans’ Museum is the story involving The Skippy Squadron and the role of Qantas in the Vietnam War. 300 flights in. 300 flights out.

Qantas was instrumental in helping transport the Australian troops to and from Vietnam between 1965 and 1972. The Qantas volunteers who choose to fly in and out of a warzone in Boeing 707s were affectionately known as the Skippy Squadron. These were highly emotional journeys for both the crew and the troops. Imagine being the captain of the aircraft and flying your son out to serve in Vietnam.

This Exhibition is to commemorate their actions and tell their stories with a collection of images taken by the servicemen and Qantas crew with memorabilia collected by those involved in these flights.
