A Royal Australian Air Force King Air 350 crew flew in formation with a museum flight crew in a World War II Lockheed Hudson patrol bomber on 2 June 2012 as part of the anniversary celebration for 32 Squadron, currently the RAAF air combat officer and observer training squadron at RAAF East Sale, Victoria. The Hudson Mk. IVA, owned and flown by the Temora Air Museum, was originally contracted as a US Army Air Forces Lend-Lease A-28 and was delivered to the RAAF on 5 December 1941. The aircraft was restored in 1993. Personnel from 32 Squadron, hastily formed at Port Moresby in February 1942, began reconnaissance and bomber operations in the Hudson on the day the unit was formed.
