The Australian Airshow season is underway with three back to back airshows taking place in southern NSW and Victoria. The Museum participated in RAAF Point Cook’s Air Pageant last weekend with Roger McKay conducted a stunning display in of our Cessna Dragonfly.
On Friday the 5th of March the Museum will take the Canberra to RAAF Williamstown to participate in a ceremony for the reactivation of 2 Squadron RAAF. Our Canberra is painted to represent a 2 Squadron aircraft that operated in Vietnam.
Sunday 7th March will see a strong presence from the Museum attend the Albury Airshow. The Cessna Dragonfly under the command of Darren Crabb will thrill the crowds with its noise, smoke and incredible performance. Albury pilot Steve Death will be the star of the show as he displays the Museum’s Spitfire which is the only flying Spitfire in Australia. The Museum will also have a stand selling gift shop items and hosting World War II pilot Ted Sly. Ted will be happy to talk with you and autograph copies of his book “The Luck of the Draw”
