Aircraft Showcase including Scale Models

TheTemoraAviationMuseumis proud to be hosting the Temora Invitational Scale Classic 2010 on Saturday 5th November here at the Museum. The Scale Model competition will be incorporated into the Aircraft Showcase – Scale Model event we are scheduled to hold. This combined event will take place on Saturday the 5th November with the Scale Models also flying on Friday 4th and Sunday 6th.

There will be a few very interesting model aircraft on display from WWI and WWII including multi-engine aircraft and modern day military jets. Each flying routine will consist of 10 manoeuvres of the pilot’s choice and two compulsory ones. All aircraft will compete in four rounds over the three days of competition as well as static judging to see how close the aircraft detail is to a full sized version. With at least two aircraft in the air all the times it will be very exciting for those watching, visitors will also have the chance to get up close to the aircraft throughout the day.”

This Saturday, you must come to Temora Aviation Museum to witness a full sized Tiger Moth, Hudson, Boomerang and Sabre along with dozens of meticulously built scale model aircraft in the air. So grab a chair and your sunscreen and come on out to theTemoraAviationMuseum this weekend. Food and beverages will be available on all three days, with normal admission applying both Friday and Sunday and on Saturday Aircraft Showcase Day admission applies.
