As a special tribute marking Anzac Day centenary commemorations, Temora Aviation Museum’s Supermarine Spitfire Mk XVI, Supermarine Spitfire Mk VIII, Lockheed Hudson, CAC Boomerang, CAC Wirraway, de Havilland Tiger Moth, Ryan STM and a Piper Cub, will fly over more than 26 towns while traveling 1300 kilometers across the Riverina and North East Victoria.

Temora Aviation Museum President and Founder, Mr. David Lowy AM, said “Each year it is a privilege for us to be able to take part in Anzac Day commemorations. This special day provides us with the opportunity to honour the men and women who served our country throughout the generations, which is the main goal and focus of the Museum. With 2015 commemorating the Anzac Centenary, I encourage you to take time to attend a service and acknowledge the contribution and sacrifice of all men women who have served our great country in times of war, conflict and peace.”

Temora Aviation Museum Chief Executive Kenny Love said “we are looking forward to this year’s Anzac Day commemorations. To create a special tribute, we are flying across as many towns in the NSW Riverina and North East Victoria as we can. This year we plan to fly three separate routes with WWII trainers, WWII fighters and a WWII bomber. The flypasts will coincide with some Anzac Day Services however due to the distances involved, it won’t be possible to fly over every town at a nominated time. We will post estimated timings on our website.”

The Temora Aviation Museum maintains in airworthy condition, historical military aircraft types flown by, or in conjunction with, Australian military forces. The Museum’s goal is to honour men and women, like the many ANZACs, who contributed during times of war. As part of this acknowledgment the Museum has interviewed hundreds of ex-service men and women as part of the Museum’s ‘Unsung Heroes’ project. This exhibition provides a biographical database which documents the stories and recollections that are vital to the pioneering spirit of Australia’s military aviation heritage. As a sign of respect, the Museum will not open to the public until midday on Anzac Day.

The Anzac Day 2015 flypasts are subject to favorable weather conditions.
