End of The Horizon for Our Caribou

The iconic DHC-4 Caribou will take a hard earned retirement from the Air Force this December, following 45 years of service to Australia.

The aircraft, operated by No. 38 Squadron at RAAF Base Townsville, has a busy schedule of activity before retirement, including appearances at Defence Air Displays in Townsville (September 26) and Wagga (October 18), and training exercises in Papua New Guinea.
