The remarkable story of X-RAY BRAVO ALPHA is told by a series of display panels which were unveiled at the Qantas Founders Outback Museum in Longreach on 7 April 2007. The text and images were prepared by Norman King and the artwork and layout were designed by Norman's daughter, Veronica. The panels were manufactured by Digital Ink of Murarrie, Brisbane and generously donated to the QFOM.

To view the panels you will need to have the Adobe Reader installed on your computer. To download this program, please click on the button at the foot of this page. The Reader is a free download.
