This war memorial is a propellor, mounted vertically to the front face a concrete obelisk. The propellor is typical of the kind found on aircraft flown and serviced by members of the Royal Australian Air Force (R.A.A.F.) during the Second World War. The memorial is dedicated to all personnel who have served in the Australian Flying Corps (A.F.C.) and R.A.A.F.

The memorial is located in Lismore's Commemorative Park and a bronze dedication plaque is nearby.

Excerpt from the Australian War Memorial:

Military aviation was first pioneered during the First World War. During the war both the armies and navies operated aircraft. Late in the war, however, when it was realised that aerial fighting was a distinct form of warfare ... some nations formed specialist air forces.

The four squadrons of the Australian Flying Corps (A.F.C.) remained part of the A.I.F. The remnants of the A.F.C. became the Australian Air Corps, which in turn became the Royal Australian Air Force on 31 March 1921.
