In 1942, Japanese planes bombed Darwin, and flew over Sydney and Melbourne. Why were these planes not shot down?

Wounded Eagle explains how, on the only occasion Australia's territorial integrity has been breached, the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) had little with which to defend the country. This devastating expose shows how Australia was left defenceless by a clique of conservative politicians, including Liberal Party hero Robert Menzies, who took decisions that left Australia without an air defence system in its greatest hour of need.
