English: The Royal Australian Air Force Memorial, situated on Anzac Parade, Campbell, Australian Capital Territory, was designed by Inge King and unveiled in 1973. It is a free-standing abstract steel sculpture on a stone base. Three large stainless steel panels reminiscent of aircraft wings, rise vertically from the base to a height of almost eight meters. They represent the endurance, strength and courage of RAAF personnel. The panels enclose a polished basalt base on which rests a bronze plate representing man's struggle to conquer the elements. The inscription per ardua ad astra is the RAAF motto meaning "through adversity to the stars".
