Low cloud threatened flying on Saturday’s Flying Day, but by 11.00 am the cloud had lifted and the show went ahead as scheduled. Visitors watched on as the Museum’s aircraft performed their aerial routines, which included the Tiger Moth, Ryan, Spitfire Mk XVI, Hudson, Boomerang, Wirraway, Meteor, Canberra, Vampire, 0-2 and Dragonfly and Steve Searle’s fabulous TBM-3 Avenger (VH-MML), which had the amazing capability of being able to fold the wings once the aircraft was on the ground. The Avenger was flown down from Coolangatta, Queensland by Temora Historic Flight Club pilot Tony Alder, and will surely visit again.
Sunday’s flying program went on as scheduled and the Museum was fortunate to get in all flying before a welcome downpour of rain at 3.00 pm that afternoon.

The next Flying Weekend is certainly close, to be held on 15 and 16 September. Come along to see the Museum’s vintage ex-military aircraft in action. There is also a surprise in store with the anticipated arrival of three RAAF F/A 18 Hornets!
