Little Aviators Welcome Big Heroes

Oct 25, 2023

In response to ‘birthday’ letters sent by McGraths Hill Learning Centre in celebration of the 65th operational anniversary of the C-130 Hercules, members of No. 37 Squadron from RAAF Base Richmond paid a special visit to the pre-schoolers earlier this month.

This visit included an engaging and interactive session where the young children had the unique opportunity to interact with the squadron crew. They were able to gain insights into the workings of a C-130J Hercules, even trying on a pilot’s helmet for themselves. 

Given their proximity to the flight path of the C-130J Hercules during training missions, this visit also provided an opportunity for the squadron personnel to connect with the Hawkesbury community and say thanks for the continued support they have received.
