Temora Aviation Museum Pays Tribute to a True Hero
Temora Aviation Museum’s iconic Spitfire Mk. VIII took part in the memorial service for Tony Gaze OAM, DFC** on Thursday 15th August 2013. The memorial service was held at the Geelong Grammar School Chapel giving members of the public the chance to honor the amazing life of this significant Australian. The Spitfire performed two low level flypasts as a mark of respect for Tony’s contributions during WWII.

Temora Aviation Museum President and Founder Mr David Lowy AM said “It is an honor for the Museum to be involved in Tony Gaze’s Memorial Service.  Tony Gaze made significant contributions to the war effort flying Spitfires with the Royal Air Force. He finished WWII as one of Australia’s most decorated Fighter Aces with 11 destroys and 3 shared to his name, it was wonderful to see so many people attend the service to honor and admire the contributions Tony has made to his country.”

The Museum’s Chief Executive Mr Kenny Love said “the Spitfire flypast at Tony Gaze’s memorial service was unique to the operations here at the Museum, but it was a rare opportunity to be able to pay tribute to a WWII Spitfire Ace. Tony’s contributions exemplify everything the Museum stands for”.
