75 Squadron RAAF 1942-2002

ISBN 1 875593 23 3

by David J. Wilson

"Seek and Strike" is the motto of No 75 Squadron RAAF. Although it was principally a P-40 Kittyhawk outfit, David Wilson's history of this famous Australian squadron also refers to their brief operation of the Lockheed F-4 Lightning.

Formed in early 1942 when Australia did not have a single fighter squadron on the Australian mainland, 75 Squadron deployed to New Guinea within two weeks of its formation. For a remarkable 44 days, 75 Squadron alone defended New Guinea. The squadron later operated Meteors, Sabres and Mirages. Today it operates the F/A-18A Hornet.
