The Vickers Vimy Exhibition at Adelaide Airport commemorates the first official flight from England to Australia – the Air Race of 1919 with Adelaide brothers Ross and Keith Smith. The restored Vickers Vimy converted bomber (Registration G-EAOU) flown by the famous aviators, is housed inside the terminal for public display.

Adelaide Airport, the South Australian Government and the Australian Government have worked together to continue the legacy of this historic aircraft.

Adelaide Airport welcomes you to the Vickers Vimy Exhibition. It encourages you to learn and be inspired by the feat of the Vickers Vimy and the four remarkable men that were instrumental to the flight.


We would like to acknowledge the Kaurna people as the custodians of the lands and waters of the Adelaide region.
