Gilgandra community engagement (1.46 mins)

On 2 June 2019 a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) C-130J Hercules and 30 Defence personnel visited Gilgandra in Central New South Wales for an Indigenous community engagement visit as part of National Reconciliation Week 2019. Whilst Gilgandra is often used by the Air Force for tactical airlift training, the visit marked the first time the Wiradjuri nation has provided a ‘Welcome to Country’ for Defence personnel at the base. Approximately 400 people from the local Gilgandra community came to Gilgandra Airfield to tour the Hercules, have a barbeque, and speak with Defence personnel.
