V-12’s and Trainers will be the theme for this Saturdays Aircraft Showcase. Come and visit the Temora Aviation Museum and embark on a journey from the simple Tiger Moth and Ryan STM trainers to the mighty V-12 powered Spitfire and Kittyhawk which will roar in an impressive display of unique sounds and nostalgia. Accompanied by music and informative commentary you will discover many interesting things about these aircraft and the men and women who served our country flying and maintaining them during WWII. We would like to extend a special thank you, to Al Arthur, who is bringing his beautiful P-40N1 Kittyhawk up from Albury to join us on Saturday.

Our Aircraft Showcase has proven to be very popular, with Museum visitors having the opportunity to see the aircraft display their capabilities in the sky before exploring the Engineering Hangar and having a chat with our Engineers who do such a fantastic job maintaining our collection of Australian ex-Military Aircraft. They have prepared demonstrations and displays which will show the internal workings of the famous Merlin engine and the Tiger Moth and Ryan will be available for that up close inspection.

The Museum opens at 10am and a historical feature film is aired shortly after in the Display Hangar, all buildings are air conditioned to escape the heat and activities for the kids are available throughout the day. Don’t forget the fully catered Mess Hall will be open with a variety of hot and cold food and beverage for you to enjoy.
