The Temora Aviation Museum is excited to announce that Warbirds Downunder 2015 will include an Evening Airshow on Friday 20th November to complement the full day Airshow on Saturday 21st November 2015.
The decision was made to add a Friday Evening Airshow to enhance the Warbirds Downunder experience for the many visitors who descend on Temora for this biennial event. Organisers said that with so many Warbird aircraft scheduled to take part, the addition of the Friday Evening Airshow will ensure that they can all be comprehensively displayed.
Warbirds Downunder is a biennial airshow hosted by the Temora Aviation Museum at the historic WWII Temora Aerodrome. It is held with the support of Temora Shire Council, Destination NSW and community organisations and is a significant event for regional NSW.
Museum Chief Executive, Kenny Love, said “This is something that we have wanted to do for quite some time now. We have received so many requests for a Friday Evening Airshow and what better opportunity than to include it as part of Warbirds Downunder. Over the years, we have been fortunate to receive fantastic support from other organisations and private Warbird owners who bring their aircraft to participate in Warbirds Downunder, and we are really looking forward to hosting this event in November. We will keep visitors informed as plans unfold and release a program of events closer to the Airshow.”
With this announcement the Mayor of Temora Shire Council, Rick Firman was delighted and commented “Temora Shire Council, together with our community, is thrilled with the announcement to expand WARBIRDS DOWNUNDER 2015 to include Friday, as well as Saturday. This is great news for Temora Shire, especially for our local businesses. It is not only Temora Shire that benefits from WARBIRDS DOWNUNDER, but the entire Riverina region – and beyond!
We warmly commend the Temora Aviation Museum team on this initiative. We know it will be bigger and better than 2013. The Aviation Museum is truly a jewel in the crown of Temora Shire and we remain grateful to them for all they do”.
The exciting addition of a Friday Evening Airshow is certain to be popular with visitors and further promotes Warbirds Downunder as a destination Warbird Airshow in regional Australia. With tickets going on sale from 10am May 5th, 2015, visitors are asked to stay tuned to the Airshow website for updates as they are released.
