CAC Boomerang


The aircraft:

Developed in a very short time using components from the Wirraway and Woomera, the Boomerang is the only Australian-designed fighter to reach production.

Although it had a good rate of climb and was very maneuverable below 15,000 feet, the Boomerang was out-classed by Japanese fighters. But it found a valuable role in army co-operation missions and served with distinction.
