Aviation Cultures webinar - CAC Boomerang

OK, a little advertising on an upcoming Aviation Culture Conference between 25-28 March, 2021. I've placed the thread here because of the relevant RAAF Centenary and Pacific War coverage; but moderators, please move to whichever area you think best.

This year it will be a webinar, so more easily available to interested overseas attendees.

Major themes include "Diversity"; and from an Australian aviation viewpoint, a prime example is the CAC Boomerang.

A “Made-In-Australia” Interceptor, an Indigenous name, based on an American trainer-aircraft, designed by a Austrian-Jew refugee, and flown into battle by an Australian-born Chinese RAAF pilot, in defence of Western Australian skies – this is the Boomerang fighter, a tale in Bio-Mechanical diversity in 1941-42.
(This is an extract from an earlier version of the article that I will be presenting.)

This link is to the Aviation Cultures Mk.V facebook page short videos. Lots of Boomerang and Beaufort teasers; and lots of other subjects for non-Boomer and Beaufort fans too.

Enjoy the videos, and maybe, see you online.
