Royal Australian Mint issued this NCLT coin as a tribute to those who served in the Australian Flying corps. The AFC answered the call for resources, supplying four officers and 41 men in support of the Anglo-Indian forces who were battling a Turkish threat around the Persian Gulf. The brave men of the AFC were from many backgrounds and left a diverse legacy. Two officers, Hudson Fysh and Paul McGinness, purchased an Avro aircraft laying the foundations for the Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Service, better known today as Qantas. This coin is part of the "Australians at War" 18 coin series being issued individually.
