TWO World War II Spitfires will be among 12 historic and modern military aircraft to fly over Wagga’s Anzac Day service on Saturday.
Wagga RSL sub-branch treasurer Brian Watts said the 10 other war birds would be an Australian-built Boomerang fighter, a Hudson bomber (both World War II era planes) and eight helicopters currently serving with the Royal Australian Navy.
The aircraft will fly over Wagga some time between 11am and 11.15am, Mr Watts said.
They are also scheduled to fly over some other Riverina centres.
“The aircraft will bring back memories for a lot of World War II veterans and their families and will add a special touch to our service,” Mr Watts said.
Wagga’s Anzac Day march will start at the intersection of Baylis and Morgan streets at 10.30am.
The official service will be held at the Cenotaph in the Victory Memorial Gardens at 11.15am. There will also be a dawn service at the Cenotaph at 6am.
