With increasing COVID-19 restrictions coming into place, management made the tough decision last Friday to cancel the scheduled 29 August Showcase event.

We remain positive that the 17 & 18 October event will take place, however we will keep you up to date as the event approaches. You can purchase your event tickets from our website

We appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience during these challenging times.

Existing ticket holders will receive a full refund, which will be processed this week.

The Museum is still able to welcome the public 7 days a week from 10am- 4pm. Our COVID-19 safety practices are working well, and we thank our visitors for following them.

A reminder that all Museum non-flying day entry tickets are available online HERE, to minimise contact and align with Government requirements.

If you have any questions, please on don’t hesitate to contact us at

The restoration of the Canberra Bomber is progressing well. Next up is the final inspection of the electrical installation for the starter system, and a vibration analysis of engine to the airframe. Both tasks require specialists from Victoria, so this may see a small delay.
Once these jobs have been completed, we will be looking at pilot availability for test flights.

The engines are ready and waiting to be reassembled in the Vampire, so another project that is going well!

We know fans want to see the Sabre in the air again- as do we, however it won’t happen in the near future, as we continue to feel the effects of the unresolved ejection seat issue.
We continue to maintain the aircraft to preservation level, and some of you may have seen on Social Media that we performed an engine run as part of the preservation cycle, and it performed beautifully!
