History of Fighter World

Our Mission

About Fighter World

Fighter World is dedicated to preserving the proud history of Royal Australian Air Force operations in the Newcastle and Hunter/New England regions.

Located just 20 mins drive north of Newcastle, adjacent to the entrance to RAAF Base Williamtown at Newcastle Airport, Fighter World is a totally ‘hands on’ experience. Exhibited in two hangars, visitors can walk-around, touch and look into the cockpits of such famous aircraft as the Mirage III, the Avon Sabre, the Gloster Meteor, the first Vampire jet built in Australia, the mighty F-111C and the F/A-18A Hornet. Also on display is a World War 1 Sopwith Camel replica, WWII Spitfire replicas, a PC-9A(F) Foward Air Control aircraft, Winjeel trainer and much more. Fighter World also offers the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of a Macchi jet trainer to experience first-hand what it’s like to be one of Australia’s ‘Top Gun’ pilots in today’s hi-tech world.

Perched on the Observation Deck you can witness the various aircraft of the RAAF’s premier fighter squadrons take-off and land while listening to all the action on the live audio feed direct from the Williamtown Control Tower.
